How to create a needed silver lining.....well since  Showcase 11 can’t be a physical reality right now, we thought we might bring you a virtual one.  The opportunity here is the photo-artists can talk about their thoughts behind their images.  SO it is most fitting to start with a Showcase11 image taken by our CVPS Showcase coordinator, Norm Prince (and the person that loves prints but understands digital is important too)*

“I spent ten days in Dubai, my daughter was working there and visits are always easier when there’s a connection… we’ve all seen the shots of modern Dubai, especially the architecture. For me, it was old Dubai, and the souks located on both sides of the original harbour. Luckily, I had my daughter and her friends as guides, otherwise it would have been down an alley and lost. This alley was behind a strip of stores, and it was just after noon… the shopkeepers were all in the shade, eating lunch or listening to music… my fellow was part of the crew of a coastal freighter, delivering shipments to the stores… no lunch for him!” - Norm Prince*

  • I’m light if the current world situation, the Pearl Ellis Gallery and the Comox Museum, with whom we share space, has temporarily closed. As an artist, I’d like to say thank you to the community of the entire valley for your continued support and interest in the gallery and it’s artists and the museum. Closing the doors isn’t taken lightly, but it was an easy decision based on the wellbeing of everyone. 
It will be a pleasure to open again, with a renewed appreciation of pretty much everything! 
In the meantime, keep washing your hands and keep your distance! Odd how in isolation, we are working together.

SHOWCASE 11*
*
“Two people will look at the same image and see something completely different, and I am always amazed at that; and that’s kind of the power of photography and it’s also the reason to print.  An exhibit like Showcase is about the print.  So everything is matted and framed the same, so you are not getting distracted by a different frame or a different mat, it’s the print that you are looking at, so that’s what the exhibit is all about.” - Norm Prince, CVPS Showcase Coordinator*
*
SHOWCASE 11 is at the Pearl Ellis Gallery, Comox, BC, March 10-28*
*
The best opportunity to meet with and talk to the Photographers is at the Opening Reception, March 13, from 7-9 pm (along with enjoying some refreshments!)*
*

  • CVPS Photographer Trudy Sloan describes how she captured this image of a Beaver in the Comox Valley——-> *

Photographic prints by CVPS photographers can be viewed at the Pearl Ellis Gallery in Comox—CVPS Showcase11 is running March 10-28

  • Although I’m in Florida, I got word from the Pearl Ellis Gallery today that I sold “True North”! ☃️ It was on sale at the Comox Community Centre. Thank you, whoever you are!
Pretty much all of my homeland has taken a beating, snow-wise, this last week. I’m especially impressed with the beautiful peeps of Newfoundland who were nailed by a terrible snow storm that was beyond imagination! ☃️☃️☃️

  • Day one of a new year personal challenge to do or read a book about art, every single day! I made it to day 182 or something last year. Loved it. Today I did some black ground, priced and numbered my cards that will be on sale at the Pearl Ellis Gallery starting next week, tied up my art related taxes for 2019, cleaned my watercolours table and then basked quietly in the darkness of my studio & twinkly lights. They randomly flow/glow - I love the lights off in here!

  • I have this belief about artists that I am learning might not be true. I can’t draw, paint, just do not feel like I possess an artistic soul so I decided to interview some artists in my neighbourhood that do amazing work.  I am learning they don’t necessarily feel like artists either....whatever that feel is....they just enjoy what they do. Would love for you to view my first artist in the neighbourhood video....the link is in my BIO above for the @shawspotlight community producers program.  I’m having fun too!  #artistsoninstagram #pearlellisgallery #cvcollective #artspherecomoxvalley #comoxvalleyarts #comoxvalleyartist #shawspotlight

  • Ho Ho Ho peeps!! It seems early, but Christmas and shopping for it isn’t that far away so I’ve started sorting and packaging gift tags ($2.50 each or five for $10). Packs contain four with strings and one unstrung, two snowmen, one sandman, one ‘decor’ tag and a mystery one!!
If you’re in the Comox Valley, they will be at #pearlellisgallery when the Christmas cards go on sale (October, I think). Or you can DM me. Thanks again to all those who purchased tags last year too. ⛄️ #carolschinkel #paint #artist #coolcanadianartists

  • Working at the Pearl Ellis Gallery in Comox today. Working the volunteer desk and on some of my snowmen paintings! Yes, I’ve just black gessoed the backs of 29 canvases that I will label and varnish at home later. Yesterday I doodled out the design for three commissions (Christmas gifts) so I may even get a jump on them today because I’m on a roll and brought all my paints!  The current show is two local watercolour artists - very pretty. The show reception is tomorrow at 1pm so if you’re in the area please drop by and meet the artists! Have a nibble and chat with friends. 😁

  • Yesterday I painted outside the Pearl Ellis Gallery in Comox. As a member of the board I need to walk the talk as we are encouraging all gallery members to do the same. And we can sell, with no commission to the gallery too! I sold a painting yesterday as I worked on this kitchen piece. It’s still not complete... I have some ideas cooking!! Ok. Off to varnish the previous video paintings! •

  • Outside the Pearl Ellis Gallery, in Comox, painting on the patio today! Im the PEG’s guinea pig for how feasible this idea is. A group of my painting buddies will also give it a try and then we will open it up to all the gallery members who paint and want to do some plein air in town!
I think this will be super fun for the artists and hopefully heighten the awareness of the gallery in the community and maybe SELL SOME ART!!
(Here’s me waiting for my paint to dry a bit).

  • At the Pearl Ellis Gallery today where a “member’s show” is in until April 20 and has the theme “home”. Saturday, April 6 is the reception, so if you’re in the hood, pop in to see some great art (and mine - lol). While it was quiet today I logged my 38 snowmen paintings from the 2019 series that are travelling east with me next week with hopes of them finding their new homes.

  • WiP -  No longer on my 100 day challenge, but still tracking the number of consecutive days I do art, so today is labeled 104!
Worked on this laundry room that’s a diptych (2 12x12” stacked to be tall). Tomorrow and Friday I’m at the Pearl Ellis Gallery in Comox where a member’s show is the current exhibit. I’ve got my other laundry room on display with lots of other art. Drop by if you’re in the valley!

  • Day 93! Volunteering at the Pearl Ellis Gallery today, so I’ve brought my paints and art book to keep me company when it’s quiet. The current show is by Channing Holland and I gotta say... it’s really pretty!! Channing isn’t on IG, so there’s no link to her work (sorry)! PEG also has a rack of a nice variety of cards by members - mine, however, are the only “original art” (read: not prints)! Everyone in the valley should rush here and them!! #100days #art #arteveryday #carolschinkel #selfchallenge #watercolour #paint #artist #coolcanadianartists

The current show is by Channing Holland and I gotta say... it’s really pretty!! Channing isn’t on IG, so there’s no link to her work (sorry)! PEG also has a rack of a nice variety of cards by members - mine, however, are the only “original art” (read: not prints)! Everyone in the valley should rush here and them!! #100days #art #arteveryday #carolschinkel #selfchallenge #watercolour #paint #artist #coolcanadianartists

How to create a needed silver lining.....well since  Showcase 11 can’t be a physical reality right now, we thought we might bring you a virtual one.  The opportunity here is the photo-artists can talk about their thoughts behind their images.  SO it is most fitting to start with a Showcase11 image taken by our CVPS Showcase coordinator, Norm Prince (and the person that loves prints but understands digital is important too)*

“I spent ten days in Dubai, my daughter was working there and visits are always easier when there’s a connection… we’ve all seen the shots of modern Dubai, especially the architecture. For me, it was old Dubai, and the souks located on both sides of the original harbour. Luckily, I had my daughter and her friends as guides, otherwise it would have been down an alley and lost. This alley was behind a strip of stores, and it was just after noon… the shopkeepers were all in the shade, eating lunch or listening to music… my fellow was part of the crew of a coastal freighter, delivering shipments to the stores… no lunch for him!” - Norm Prince*

  • I have this belief about artists that I am learning might not be true. I can’t draw, paint, just do not feel like I possess an artistic soul so I decided to interview some artists in my neighbourhood that do amazing work.  I am learning they don’t necessarily feel like artists either....whatever that feel is....they just enjoy what they do. Would love for you to view my first artist in the neighbourhood video....the link is in my BIO above for the @shawspotlight community producers program.  I’m having fun too!  #artistsoninstagram #pearlellisgallery #cvcollective #artspherecomoxvalley #comoxvalleyarts #comoxvalleyartist #shawspotlight
