A school of Stinking Fish

Stinking Fish artists hold two-day art and fine craft fair

Alice McLean's pottery will be on sale next weekend at A School of Stinking Fish.

This fall, Stinking Fish artists will be pooling their talents and heading to school; specifically, West-Mont Montessori School in Metchosin.

Some of the participating East Sooke artists include:

 

Marlene Bowman – Pottery

Inspired by the rocks and forest around her, Marlene’s pottery has evolved from functional stoneware to an exploration of texture in clay and her signature two and one half dimensional artwork.

 

Alice McLean – Pottery and Raku

From sinks to fountains, and lamps to cooking pots, Alice uses her prodigious talent to create a wide variety of pottery for both functional and ornamental use.

 

Angela Menzies – Painting

Angela’s playful and colourful personality is reflected in the exuberance of her art. Her life and art is filled with bad dogs, wild women and trouble making cats, all of which are reflected in the vitality of her canvases.

 

Leslie Speed – Linocut prints

Delicately carved lines translate Leslie’s country reflections into small and intriguing linoprints. Birds, dogs and trees, the essentials of rural life find themselves engagingly captured into this traditional art form.

This two-day Fine Art and Fine Craft Show will also feature a special showing of recent work from past tour members.

Art mediums include: oil, acrylic and watercolour artists, woodworking, woodturning, wood furniture, pottery, glass art, fabric art, knitting, felting, metal art and more.
