Garibaldi Art Club presents its 52nd annual fall show next week.

It will feature a large selection of original paintings by club members.

Artwork available at the exhibitions includes framed paintings, ranging from large to small, unframed paintings, and a wonderful selection of art cards.

Paintings will be in various mediums and display a wide range of styles.

The Garibaldi Art Club was started 52 years ago by a group of artists who got together in their homes to paint.

Its mission is to foster the growth and development of its members’ creativity and, in turn, share it with our community. The club is made up of men and women, beginners to advanced, from the Sunday painter to the full-time artist, and includes work of all painterly media.

Club member Enid ‘Toffee’ Dalziel is a mother, grandmother, retired nurse and dedicated artist who started painting eight years ago under the instruction of artist Aeron McBryde.

Whatever subject stirs her artistic senses up is what she will paint next. It may be a seascape, landscape, flowers or visions she sees within herself.

Dalziel who has been a member of the club for seven years says she looks forward to the annual exhibition, which gives her a chance to hear immediate feedback on her work.

• The show opens at Fraserview Village Hall, 22610 116th Avenue in Maple Ridge on Friday, Nov. 18 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. and continues Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
