In 2008 Angie organized an artists plein air paint out Aug. 4-8th to coincide with the Stewart Bear Festival.  STEWART IS A PARADISE FOR ARTISTS TO PAINT!  Artists came from around the province, Penticton, Stewart, Prince Rupert  and New Zealand and joined Stewart artists.  We had a great week painting around Stewart, in Hyder Alaska, and at the Salmon Glacier and we saw lots of bears.  On Friday, August 8th, from 7-9 PM Angie had an art show at the HarbourLight Store with hosts Eva and Goady Appenzeller.  They've been kind enough to hang Angie's work and have sold her notecards and gifts ever since she opened her retreat up in Stewart.   Artists may contact Angie if they want to paint or one of the festival organizor by e-mail for future Bear Festival information, tables or event tickets or if they wish to participate in the Artists' Market that is held in conjunction with the Festival.  Angie had her works on display and organized children's painting again.  All enjoyed displays by several artists, authors, carver, bear program, crafters, a puppet show and the musical  entertainment as well as breakfasts, lunches, and dinners.  On Sunday Aug. 10th Angie led a free plein air paint out at the pavilion.  Then from August 11-13th artist Lorna Allen from New Zealand led an Acrylic painting workshop giving several artists a chance to spend a few more days painting. All in all a lovely time was had, enjoying the scenery, making new friends, and painting.  Artists wishing to join Angie to paint in Stewart in 2009 should contact Angie in Canada at 250 809-7932 or by e-mail.
