Anne White’s Tea for Two

Painters show their colours

Show by Fraser Valley Watercolour Society continues at Surrey Art Gallery until Aug. 4.

Sailboats speeding by Atkinson Point in West Vancouver on a blustery day; a meadow lit by a full moon; and the iridescent colours of mallard ducks.

These are some of the scenes that have inspired watercolour artists in Water, Colours, Inspiration!, an exhibition of recent works by 19 members of the Fraser Valley Watercolour Society.

Continuing to Aug. 4 at the Surrey Art Gallery, the show presents 48 watercolours that range from landscape imagery to animal and floral studies. With images inspired by the colours of nature, their travels, local attractions, and the movement of the paints, the artists have also experimented with different techniques and types of paper.

Admission to this exhibition is free.
