You won’t want to miss this 12-hour special show exhibiting Mark’s first ever collection of portrait paintings. Those who are acquainted with Mark’s well-known landscape paintings will recognize his unique colour interpretations and bold brushstrokes but see them applied to a new subject matter. The show will feature around 25 paintings of some very familiar faces from the Bulkley Valley.

The exhibition will be open 9am-9pm, with an opening reception from 6-9pm -  all welcome, free admission, refreshments provided!

Location: dance studio, Central Park Building

Artist’s Statement

I've had this series of uniform sized portraits underway for a year and a half. The show will feature about 25 paintings of faces. There are some differences in approach but overall there is a similarity in style and colour usage. The colour usage is often non literal, pinks, greens and purples. I hope to capture the feel of the person and at the same time make it an interesting painting.
