In 2010 Angie and friend Mija went to
Stewart to paint and enjoy the Stewart Bear Festival. STEWART IS
A PARADISE FOR ARTISTS! Over the years artists have came from
around the province,
Penticton, Stewart, Prince Rupert, Smithers and New
Zealand have joined local Stewart artists. We usually have a
painting around Stewart, in Hyder Alaska, and at the Salmon
Glacier and we often see lots of bears. Artists may contact Angie if
they want to paint or one of the
festival organizor by e-mail for
Festival information, tables or event tickets or if
to participate in the Artists' Market that is held in conjunction with
the Festival. Angie had her works on display and every year
children's painting table. All enjoyed displays by several
artists, authors, carvers, the bear program, crafters, a puppet show
musical entertainment as well as breakfasts, lunches, and
dinners and in 2010 the opening of the amazing Bear Visitor Centre and
Museum--what a highlight. On Sunday Angie led a free plein air
at the pavilion.
Artists wishing to join Angie to paint in Stewart in the future should
contact Angie in Canada at 250 809-7932 or by e-mail.
