April 4 – 25, 2013 at Gallery West, South Shore Gallery, 2046 Otter Point Rd.
“Mainly Fishboats” is a solo show and sale of acrylic paintings by Shirley artist Christopher Lucas.
Christopher Lucas is a very productive artist who, since moving to the west coast of Vancouver Island, has concentrated on themes of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and environs. Fishboats, Sheringham Lighthouse, forests and shoreline are the subjects for his impressions of West Coast living. His paintings are energetic, colourful and enthusiastic depictions of our surrounds: as bracing as a westerly off the Strait.
