From May 27-29, more than 30 of B.C.’s most renowned artists will gather at Painter’s Lodge near Campbell River to mark the 17th annual Painters at Painter’s event. Raymond Chow, Robert Genn, Ted Harrison, Keith Hiscock, Kiff Holland, Alyn Wylie and Chief Tony Hunt are some of the artists-in-residence this weekend during the annual Painters at Painter’s.

Throughout the weekend, visitors will interact with artists as they host demonstrations, participate in panel discussions and create works at the resort.

“Throughout the years, some of B.C.’s most prominent artists have joined us at Painters at Painter’s, creating a brain trust of art and creativity unparalleled in Canadian art today,” says Christine Fleming, general manager of Painter’s Lodge. “One of the largest artist gatherings to take place nationally each year, it’s an incredible opportunity for art enthusiasts to celebrate and learn from some of B.C.’s best, in one of the province’s most beautiful settings.”

More than 90 pieces of original art from the 33 artists will be displayed in a unique collection over the weekend. In addition, permanent exhibits at Painter’s feature prints and giclées of the artists’ original work in many of the guestrooms.

Various visitor packages are available, including Saturday and Sunday day passes, walk-in passes and a weekend package.

There are nearly 20 workshops and discussions to choose from, including Saturday’s “Can this Canvas be Saved,” where Kathryn Amisson will demonstrate the art of painting recovery.

Saturday will also feature “Glenn Howard Memorial Critique” with Andy Wooldridge, giving visitors the chance to have samples of their work critiqued. Sunday highlights include “Original Ideas for the ‘Over the Hill’ Artists,” a discussion with Mike Svob and Brent Heighton, and “Portrait Demonstration” with David Goatley.
