The Ripoffs are at it again! / by Bethany Handfield

At it again, we "rip off" Sir John A. McDonald, Canadian history, every Canadian artist you ever heard of (and some you haven't), even old currency, and manage to have a great time while we do it!

Featuring a group of local artists who create in a variety of styles working live at the Quail’s Nest in Oliver, BC.

Opening reception Monday July 10 at 6 pm with a Confederation high tea.

The artists will be working Tuesday to Saturday 9 am to 3 pm with a closing reception at 3 pm on Saturday at the Quail's Nest Art Centre: 5840 Airport Road Oliver, BC V0H1T0

We are "ripping off" Canadian artists this time and I am excited to have Maud Lewis as my subject. I am a little obsessed with her cats! I will be recreating the $10 bill in her style and in encaustic. This will be a very interesting challenge for me as the $10 bill is quite detailed but Maud's paintings are deliciously simple.
