A Brush with Life - Issue #79 Mindfully Opening

A Brush with Life - Issue #79 Mindfully Opening
By Terrill Welch Gallery • Issue #79 • View online
New art shows will be opening in the Terrill Welch Gallery in June. We will also begin to again have a few walk-in hours available for both of our gallery rooms, starting with this Saturday 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. We are mindfully opening in a slow and thoughtful way. Following this week’s Provincial announcement, recreational travel is again allowed within our regional designations. This means people can come to Mayne Island from Vancouver Island and the other Gulf Islands and we can go there just the fun of it! Like, you can come visit the gallery during a day trip or week or weekend visit from Victoria. Now how cool is this!? Mostly, we will still be open by appointment though. So do contact us if you are coming and we will open the doors (and windows) wide to welcome you! The usual protocols are still in place for now - such as masks, two at a time and distancing and there is hand sanitizer at the door. If everything goes well, there will be more Provincial wide recreational travel coming by mid June and we will be ready to welcome even more of you!

Opening This Coming Week!
But before the next Arbutus Room group show opens, this coming week on Wednesday June 9, 2021 there will be a solo exhibition of Terrill Welch’s work opening. Some of these paintings are new and some are moving over from the group show and one is included even though it has recently sold simply because it was suppose to be in this show. As “A Brush with Life” subscribers you have VIP early viewing privileges starting right now…
Stepping Lightly: pandemic life within our landscape | Artsy
Reluctantly Released...
For a short while, Terrill Welch held onto this recent work with the hopes it could go in a specific space and stay in her private collection. Alas, it is too large and she feels it needs to have a special home of its own. Therefore, this work is now available for your consideration and will be included in her next solo show that is link above and will be in the gallery’s Garden Room.

Terrill Welch | Rolling up on the Strait of Georgia (2021) | Available for Sale | Artsy
Artist notes: Morning sun reveals a rough sea from winds farther up the Strait of Georgia. As the rollers hit the edge of the sandstone reef it is enough to take my breath away and shout into the roar of the wave. These storms often mean power outages on our small island off the southwest coast of Canada. This means that ferry sailings might be canceled. So within all of the storms beauty there is an underlying respect for the power of the wind and the sea.
Time with Terrill and the Arbutus Trees
We have a short video capturing older and newest Arbutus tree painting from Saint John Point by Terrill Welch. Some of these have already found homes and some are brand new. We thought you might enjoy the chance to see them together…
