The Chemainus Art Group is thrilled to host a guest artist at our monthly Meet-Up on the 2nd Wednesday of the month. It's always inspirational when our guests talk to us about their work, do a demo or lead a work-along. Here is what we have planned for the Fall 2024 season.

Our Demo Artist Meet Ups are for members only,  but we welcome new members at any time. For more information on how to become a member please click here.

October 9th 2024 - Nadine Wong

Nadine Wong specializes in crafting handmade books and journals, meticulously sewn and bound using a number of techniques and a diverse selection of materials such as book board, book cloth, and a variety of hand created papers.  Her journals are adorned with intricate designs, including collage elements, distressed textures and mark making.  During her demo, Nadine will showcase several of her works and provide insight into her creative process.


November 13th 2024-Mary-Ann Gordon

In this demo, Mary-Ann Gordon will speak on ‘the positives of negative painting’. Negative painting is an effective and dramatic way to introduce depth to your work. Join her in exploring a little of the history of negative painting and watch as she demonstrates adding depth and visual interest to a watercolour painting.

Mary-Ann has indulged her passion for watercolour for close to 40 years, and is always excited to share her knowledge and enthusiasm with others. Her work has metamorphosed from extremely representative interpretations of nature, landscape and flowers to freely intuitive work designed to evoke movement and emotion.
