The Coast Collective at Esquimalt Lagoon will be a dynamic, exciting centre promoting local art and culture. A destination for tourists and local residents alike, the elegant gallery and gift shop will showcase the best work of Island artists.
This current series of Abstract Paintings explores contrasting textures, shades and colour of various papers, fabrics and paint materials. The work is dynamic yet the subtleness of the textural interplay gives it a meditative quality.
Internationally known artist Marney Ward paints large, light-filled, closeup floral watercolours. A signature member of the Federation of Canadian Artists. See her work at Butchart Gardens, Art Gallery of Greater Victoria and Winchester Galleries.
