While in Courtenay last weekend, I saw a lovely exhibit of new work by Vancouver artist Suzan Marczak called “Wildwood Stories”. The exhibit features paintings from two series: “Nurse Log Tales” and “Forgotten Steel”. Each painting is accompanied by a written ‘story’ that was inspired by the painting. This one is "The Elephant In The Closet".
I have seen Suzan’s work over the years, and was really impressed by the softness and masterful quality to this work. Check it out if you are on the Island. The show runs until August 3rd.
