Art Group

After a couple of months of successfully negotiating Zoom meetings, the Art Group of CB55+ was ready to try live socially distanced gatherings.  Each week we are choosing a different park or beach in the city to draw, paint, chat, or just enjoy the scenery. We are so grateful to live in beautiful Victoria where the outdoor inspirational possibilities for our art are seemingly endless.

In the future, we look forward to being able to share our latest creations with the membership either virtually or in person. In the meantime, meeting up with friends to laugh, lament, create, and sing the praises of Bonnie Henry has been invigorating and life affirming and we recommend it to everyone!

Every May the Art Group at CB55+ takes great pleasure in welcoming members and friends to our Art Show at the Centre.

This year, to ensure the safety of all and to satisfy the requirements of social distancing, we needed to find a creative way of displaying a little of the work we had prepared. To that end, we are delighted to present a three minute slide show prepared with the expertise of our very own Elizabeth Carson. We thank you in advance for viewing and sharing our video with others. 

Kindest regards,
Jane Bishop (on behalf of the CB55+ Art Group)

The Art Group of CB55+ laughs and plays in the studio on Monday afternoons from 1:30 – 4:00 pm.  We continue to welcome new artists to our group who wish to share their creative energy in a caring, supportive atmosphere.  We are so grateful for the support and encouragement we receive from all of you and look forward to showing you how we have grown and developed since last year!

After preparing and cooking a successfully received lunch for the membership this past week, your CB55+ Art Group now moves on to planning for our third annual Art Show and Sale. Please mark Saturday, May 23rd on your calendars when we will look forward to welcoming you to an exhibition and sale of the art we have been creating in the studio this past year. We have an eclectic mix of talented artists working in acrylic, watercolour, oil pastels, hand built pottery, glass sculptures, and jewelry design and we know you won’t be disappointed by our show. Perhaps, when you see what we have been creating, some of you may even be inspired to join us. Know that you would be most welcome to join in the laughter, encouragement, and support of our artistic community.
