Our little neighborhood art show and sale will be focusing on Christmas gift ideas.  Small paintings, hand crafted jewelry, hand woven shawls, shugs, scarves, cards and more.  We may be small but we pack a punch when it comes to gift ideas.  Location 3741 Ascot Drive, November 19 and 20 from 10 to 4:00 pm.

Just a quick note to let you know I have added a new gallery to my website "30% Discount Sale." I will add paintings to this gallery periodically and hopefully there will be something there that catches your eye.  Rather than send out a note announcing a sale, which I do at this time of year, I thought I would like to offer a few discounted paintings year round.  I hope you enjoy this new feature and that it might inspire the gift of original artwork for those on your Christmas list.  Work can be viewed at www.annebowen.ca

I am pleased to be participating again in the Scattered Artist Tour along with Cathy, a wonderful potter and Judi, a talented jewellery maker.  Judi will be hosting the three of us at 3741 Ascot Drive.  I will be showing both my woven fashions and paintings.  Please join us on May 21 and 22 from 11:00 to 4:00.  Lots of parking at King's Pond.  www.annebowen.ca

 

 

            

We are so pleased to be able to once again host our annual show at Glenlyon Norfolk School gym, 1701 Beach Drive.  Opening Tuesday, March 22, 4 to 7pm.  Show continues daily, Wednesday to Saturday 10am to 6pm, Sunday 10am - 4pm.  Over 100 original paintings for sale, door prizes and artists demos.  Covid protocols in place.  For a peak at my latest work, www.annebowen.ca

 

        

I am offering a 15% discount on all paintings and woven wearable art for the month of December and January.  There is a desperate need for homes and funding for dogs at the moment and all proceeds of sales will be split between a local dog rescue and Second Chance Dog Rescue.  Rufino pictured below is a Mexican rescue fortunately finding a home here in Victoria.  Paintings and weavings can be viewed at www.annebowen.ca

 

                

Fall is my favorite time of year, a time to regroup, reflect and experiment with new ideas and inspirations.  I am offering 15% off all artwork from now until the end of December to make way for new paintings.  This is a perfect time to give the gift of artwork to yourself or your loved ones.  Postal rates $20.00 - $65.00 anywhere in Canada.  Paintings can be viewed at www.annebowen.ca

Now for a something a little different.  As most of my painting are still down at the Coast Hotel, I will be displaying my woven wearable art and explaining the process of taking the raw fibre from the spinning process to the weaving.  I will have a good selection of jackets, wraps, infinity scarves and shrugs available, just in time for the cooler weather.  "Slow Fashion" of sustainable clothing is something I am excited about and I am enjoying exploring all the wonderful possibilities. 

Sharing the garden with me will be a fantastic potter and a marvelous jeweller.  We are at  3735 Ascot Drive, north end of the Cedar Hill Golf course.  Tour runs 11 - 4 on August 28 and 29.  Lots of parking at King's Pond. www.annewbowen.ca

 

           

 

I am excited to be invited back to the Coast Hotel to show my work for the month of August.  The paintings will be hung in the lobby areas as well as the restaurant.  The hotel is a lovely venue for artwork and I hope,  if you are in the Fisherman's Wharf area, that you will pop in. www.annebowen.ca

 

         

I hope everyone is enjoying the summer with family, friends and catching up on visits and hugs.  I am happy to be hanging 13 new works in the Grand Pacific Hotel's lobby area, 463 Belleville, 5th - 31st July.  The show features a collection of my bear paintings as well as BC coastal landscapes.  For a preview visit www.annebowen.ca
