Local is featured in Campbell River

Susan Schaefer will be exhibiting her paintings around the Island and in Saskatchewan this summer

Susan Schaefer has a busy summer of art exhibitions on the Island an beyond.

A local artist is hitting the ground running this summer starting with an exhibition at Impressions Gallery & Framing in Campbell River in July.

Susan Schaefer is the Feature Artist at that gallery and will have about 20 acrylic paintings ranging in theme from West Coast landscapes, prairie images of elevators and old barns, floral paintings and a few New Mexico pieces.

There will be a meet and greet at the gallery on Saturday, July 5 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Schaefer’s exhibition runs in conjunction with the third annual Rivercity Arts Festival, held on Saturday July 26  in downtown Campbell River.  Impressions Gallery & Framing is located at 990B Shoppers Row in Campbell River.

In August, Schaefer moves her work to the Pearl Ellis Gallery on 1729 Comox Ave. in Comox. “Landscapes; as we see them,” runs from Aug. 19 to Sept. 7.  Along with fellow artist Jill Paris Rody, Susan will be showing a vast array of acrylic landscape paintings.

Immediately following her Comox exhibition, Schaefer hits the road with her paintings for an exhibition in Fort Qu’Appelle Saskatchewan. The pop-up show is held at the historical Train Station and runs two days only: September 12 and 13.

Mostly self-taught, Schaefer continues to grow as an artist by taking classes and organizing workshops by professional artists that she admires. Schaefer is a self-employed graphic designer and publisher of the Island Arts Magazine.
