Introducing the James Bay Art Walk Artists

Art Walk

By Anne Hansen 

The new and returning James Bay Art Walk artists look forward to seeing you the weekend of September 17th (11-5 both days).

The talented and passionate artists on this year's studio tour include:

Aurafidélité Arindam will show and sell her original botanical drawings, fine art prints, and cards. She is a member of the Botanical Artists of Canada, and her orchid drawings received numerous prizes at the 2010 Victoria Orchid Society's Annual show. Aura's artwork can be seen at Butchart Gardens, Sooke Harbour House, UVic's Legacy Art Gallery, the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria's Moss Street Paint-In, and Summer Small Works Exhibit. She did her Master's studies at McGill University and studied art with a student of Salvador Dali.

Janice Beiles is an avid traveller. Through the lens of her camera, she sees the exceptional in the everyday.

Ken Crassweller holds several academic degrees, and taught and worked with Inuit arts and crafts. His colourful, animated images invite study, with depictions of interplay of people with other creatures. His paintings include people interacting in Victoria's familiar landscapes and seascapes.
