Visual artist and arts writer Nicole Bauberger from Whitehorse will paint part of her Get There From Here sequence outdoors at The Reach Gallery Museum Abbotsford (32388 Veterans Way) on Saturday, June 21 from noon to 3 p.m.

Bauberger’s current series of plein air pieces, painted from the side of the road at 50 km intervals across Canada from Montreal to Inuvik, turns north at Portage La Prairie in Manitoba.

This month she paints the southern stretch of the Trans-Canada drive, Portage La Prairie to Vancouver, then up to Dawson Creek, which links Abbotsford into her “map” of paintings, and where her show will be installed in the summer of 2016.

Working directly out of the back of her truck, Bauberger will create a 12” x 12” oil painting based on her observations of The Reach’s parking lot on June 21.

She invites interested people to help out through crowdfunding in exchange for some of her artwork at nicolebauberger.com/01roadfundraise.html.

As a writer, Bauberger has written about art, the business of art and reviewed exhibitions and plays.

As an arts educator, she has taught countless art and arts-related workshops, from encaustic to 10-foot-tall puppet sessions.

As a storyteller, she tells mostly wonder tales, something between a fairytale and a myth, to audiences from Scotland, across Canada and to the U.S.

Also on June 21 at The Reach, the public is invited at 1 p.m. to hear guest curator Dr. Carl Peters speak about Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Painting.

He will reveal the stories behind some of the bissett paintings and images on exhibit.

Admission is free on the afternoon of June 21. For more information, visit thereach.ca.
