ARTIST NAME: Natasha Audy

VENUE: Castlegar Computers (#20)

MEDIUM: Acrylic Paintings

CURRENT CITY: Castlegar, BC

 

BIO & ARTIST STATEMENT:

I grew up in the East Kootenays and after attending Selkirk College’s Recreation, Fish and Wildlife Technician program, spent a few years in the Okanagan. I moved back to the Kootenays to live in Castlegar about six years ago.

I’ve been creating art in one form or another for most of my life, but currently I’ve been focusing primarily on acrylic painting. My inspiration comes from being outdoors in all seasons, usually with a camera in hand and my dog at my side.

BIO & ARTIST STATEMENT:

On Monday evenings, when the Robson Community School is in session, a group of around seven artists can be found creating paintings with a wide variety of subjects in different mediums. Our group was formed in 2003 by a few artists in Robson who wanted to share ideas, inspire each other, develop their skills and welcome new artists from the surrounding area. Although there are no formal lessons taught, members offer some help to each other. Pictured below, Robson Painter Ida Price

 

 

We each have a different reason for painting: for some it’s to market their work, while others simply paint for the sheer joy of the experience. This year for Castlegar’s Art Walk, we are happy to be back on display at Central City Shoes. And as our member Sandra Donohue points out, “owner Derek Kittson and his staff are very welcoming and supportive, and they provide a lovely space for us.”
