Shelly Hollingshead

A group of art friends who have painted and shared their passion for several years have become known as the ‘Wet Paint Artists’ and have hosted an annual art show and sale each August for the last 5 years. The artists, from Comox, Black Creek, and Campbell River, paint together on a regular basis, stimulating and encouraging the individuality and vision of each artist.

The art of Elaine Prodor, Loree Cunningham, Sonia Hauser, Shelly Hollingshead, Jenny Mitchell, Michelle Ohlsson, Lesley Rieck and Kathi Rudko represents a wide range of experience and an eclectic mix of subjects, styles and media. While our coastal environment and natural world can be seen reflected in many of the artists’ works, the style and interpretation of each painter is unique. Collage, oil, acrylic, oil and cold wax, and mixed media pieces will form this exciting display.

Over the last few years, many of the group members have been exploring more abstract and mixed media applications, and several have taken courses with acclaimed national and international artists such as Nicholas Wilton, Jane Davies,  Suzanne Northcott, Sheila Davis and Claire Desjardins. They are enjoying the excitement of these new directions as well as continuing their more traditional landscape, still life and figurative work.
