Top Bridge is complete with a suspension bridge, water view and the fantastic ragged rocks make for great photos. For those of you who like taking impromptu photo pics there may be swimmers giving you a wonderful opportunity

If you have any questions during the event see Barb Hooper

Directions;

Take the old highway (19A south) Do NOT turn to go to Nanaimo but go straight ahead onto Kaye RD. Turn right onto Chattle RD- go past the gun club… the road turns to gravel. Follow this road to the end. There is a large parking lot and the suspension bridge is right there.

Aug 2019 Meeting
Aug 7 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

 

Our speaker this month is Qualicum Beach photographer, Joan Larson.

Joan’s original passion for horses led to her interest in art
and she has never stopped to look back.

Joan has an extensive CV chronicling 25 years of
professional achievements which include international
shows, awards and documentaries. However it is the
present and future that hold her attention. Her recent
ground breaking series of artworks honouring the RCMP
Musical Ride has been used for exhibitions supporting
non-profit organizations. This was followed by a series
based on her trips to remote and restricted Sable Island to
paint it most famous denizens, the wild horses. Next on
her radar is a series of paintings based on “Life at the Race
Track.”

Joan is a Senior member of the Federation of Canadian
Artists (SFCA), a full member of the American Academy
of Equine Artists (AAEA) and holds the Premier Pastelist
designation with the Pastel Society of Canada (PPC).

Joan and her husband Paul Smith own and operate
Creekside Studio from their acreage in the rural area of
Coombs where they live with their family and assorted
animals, including horses . . . which Joan states “are simply
necessary.”
