Random Moments
Cathy Pelter

& West Coast Reflections
Stephen Dobson

Opening Reception: Sunday, August 24, 2014
Medium: Multiple Mediums

The Abbotsford Arts Council is pleased to present Cathy Pelter and Stephen Dobson as they share the Kariton Art Gallery for a duo exhibition.

Cathy Pelter’s exhibit, “Random Moments” is full of pieces inspired by random moments of shadow and light, a facial expression, a path in the forest, lovers in the city, a curtain blowing in the wind or whatever scene beckons to be explored with her paints and brushes.  She currently utilizes an impressionist style with watercolour or acrylic mediums to capture the essence of her feelings. The process of creating a painting gives Cathy the opportunity to savour such random moments.  

Stephen Dobson’s exhibit “West Coast Reflections” offers pieces that are more driven by landscapes, marine work and figurative subjects that are all based on scenes from the West Coast of British Columbia. Read more...
