The Garibaldi Art Club’s annual fall show is being held Nov. 20-22 at Fraserview Village Hall, Friday from 7-9 p.m., Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“It is amazing how many different ideas artists choose to paint, everything literally from soup to nuts, some realistic, others very abstract, and everything in between,” said organizer Joyce Campbell.

She said their mediums have moved beyond oils and watercolours – although these are still powerful choices.

“A visitor to the show will notice the popularity of acrylics and pastels, both chalk and oil,” she said. “No paintbrush between you and the paper – just dig in and get dirty.”

There are collages and pictures created using mixed media, coloured pencils and even just drawings.

“Obviously, a variety of methods and styles, enough to set your mind to dreaming, planning, even buying,” said Campbell.

Most club members are not professional artists. Some are academically trained, but many are just ordinary people who delight in the process of creating.

The club offers workshops with working artists during the year to help members improve their skills in seeing shapes, lights and darks, using colour and in drawing. A visitor to the GAC shows will notice artists getting better each year, one of the benefits of visiting every year, said Campbell.
