Thank you Penticton Arts Council and Sharon for making this Happen!
The Sandbridge painting group has been meeting at their clubhouse in Penticton to paint for the last ten years. About five years ago, watercolour artist Bernie Cattani kindly took over the leadership of the group. While most of the group were amateur seniors who had never painted before, under the tutelage of Mr. Cattani, the group flourished, learning the techniques of watercolours, producing a variety of lovely works ranging from florals to landscapes, and animals to cottages. Bernie provided inspiration and motivating critiques and now Angie Roth McIntosh is delighted to be out painting with the group and hopes that they will enjoy doing some new work.
The group presently have around 10 members who meet one afternoon a week from October to May. The group is most enthusiastic about their art and are quite prolific. The group has previously held an exhibit each fall that was open to the public. On May 27 of 2010 the held their first serious show at Leir House and it ran until June 27th. The works were many and varied and show the wonderful pieces that the group are capable of. Visitors to the opening had a lovely evening.
The motto of the group is that "Art is For Everyone" and they serve as an inspiration to all who have ever desired to take up the fine art of painting.
Angie McIntosh, creator of WorldArtTours.net, was originally invited to come and speak to the group. She planned to attend their painting sessions so that she too might learn some of the secrets of their successful approach to watercolours. Since the fall of 2006 Angie has been leading the group and has found them to be a constant source motivation and inspiration. She is pleased to include them in the "Artists Groups" of WorldArtTours.net.
