Dale Kethler and Susan Ring are the MAC’s External Exhibit at Cafe Adagio for the month of July.
Kethler said she remembers that when she was very young she liked to draw and colour.
“This interest continued in school, where some of my best grades was in the ‘arts,’ even entering painting contests in school of which I won prizes. Once I was out of school, I became busy with my married life and motherhood, and then continuing employment.”
When Dale retired three years ago, she renewed her interest in drawing and painting. Pen and ink, as well as acrylic painting has continued to be her favourite mediums.
For as long as Ring can remember, she said she has been creating in one form or another, but painting has always been her heart’s desire. She said started painting in the 1970s, using different surfaces and mediums, and has enjoyed travelling throughout Canada and the United States painting with friends.
Kethler and Ring’s work will be on display at Cafe Adagio during the month of July. Cafe Adagio is located at 147 Harrison Ave., in Parksville. The café is open Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
