Lone Gardner is a Piers Island artist who spends her life between Piers and Calgary, Alberta. Her subject matter of gardens, mountains and seas all share a unique and appealing palette of colours and a painterly feel. She paints with acrylic on canvas and all work in the show will be originals and available for purchase.
We invite you to take in Lone's work and meet the artist on Friday May 18th between 7 and 9 pm. PIG will also be open Saturday and Sunday from 2-4 pm and please feel free to call for a private showing.
When I look at all the wonderful artwork by our talented Piers Island artists I can't help but hum...here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus! :) We do try and keep the artist pages updates with new work and prices, but if there's anything you see that strikes your fancy and you'd like more information, please contact us. We can arrange delivery before Christmas for you.
PIG will be open by appointment Monday, Wednesday and Thursday this week. We hope to open Saturday December 23rd - but weather conditions may prevent this. A small hazard of island living with the holidays approaching.
Wishing you all the best for the holiday season and an art filled New Year!
Oh, I know...you think...it's November still! But it always sneaks up on us and every year we seem amazed how suddenly it is the week before Christmas with so much to do! PIG is here to help you find awesome gifts for everyone on your list. We've asked our artists to bring us small works for December, but as soon as they are in - you'll see them on our Facebook page. :)
A few ideas for you here...all under $150 from all of our artists.
Not on Piers? Yes, we can ship!
