A new display of paintings and prints has been installed at the Sechelt Public Library. Adorning the walls from now until January 2016 are paintings by local artist Sheila Page (Davis Bay), and prints by artist Kathryn Neun (Powell River).

Sheila Page, a retired elementary school teacher, has spent the last 10 years taking a number of art classes and workshops at Emily Carr University of Art & Design, Capilano University, and the Gibsons School of the Arts. Her paintings on display at the Library are from a series she calls “A Closer Look” – works that explore the beach scenes familiar to anyone living on the Coast.

“In this series of paintings I wanted to draw attention to the importance and complexity of the natural world beneath our feet. The humble natural objects on the beach have been shaped by the waves and weather into arrangements that reflect the power of their environment,” says Page.

Complimenting Page’s paintings are a series of ethereal prints by artist Kathryn Neun. Neun completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts at York University in 1981, and since that time she has exhibited her prints in a number of group and solo exhibitions in Ontario, Quebec, Nova Scotia, and BC.

Most of Neun’s prints are collagraphs – a type of print created by collaging a variety of materials directly onto the printing plate.

All of the artwork can be viewed during regular Library hours and is available for purchase directly from the artists.
