The Campbell River Art Gallery and Mothership Adventures are thrilled to announce that renowned artist Mike Svob will be leading a painting cruise on the beautiful Columbia III May 20-May 23.

Participants will have the opportunity to paint some of the most beautiful and remote coastal locations on the B.C. coast, from the Discovery Islands to Desolation Sound, with instruction and guidance from Svob. He will be working in both acrylics and watercolour.

Svob is celebrating his thirty first year as a professional artist. He is an impressionist easily identified by his signature use of strong, bold colour. Fluent in watercolours, acrylics, and oils, Svob has had more than 70 exhibitions and produced 25 plus murals throughout North America. He enjoys the creative process, is an avid map reader, and a pilot; a person with a great sense of adventure.

Daily demonstrations and lively conversation around all things art-related will punctuate each glorious day aboard the Columbia III.

The Columbia III is a stunningly luxurious 68’ vessel featuring gourmet food passengers rave about for years afterwards.

The annual coastal painting cruise is one of the seasonal highlights for Mothership Adventures, which provides a wide variety of exciting coastal adventures on the Columbia III.

The scenery participants will get the chance to see is unparalleled – artists will see stunning landscapes daily.
