Local artist’s painting accepted at show

The Boundary is blessed with many talented artists. Heather Hollingsworth's work was selected for a FCA juried show in Vancouver.

This painting by local artist Heather Hollingsworth was one of 51 selected for showing at the Federation of Canadian Artists AIRS show in Vancouver this month.

Local artist Heather Hollingsworth has a passion for art and her dedication to that passion has been recognized as one of her paintings was recently accepted into a juried show in Vancouver.

Her piece entitled “Heavy Mist at Hampstead Ranch” was one of 51 selected out of 350 entries in the fourth Federation of Canadian Artists Annual International Representational Show (AIRS).

The painting is a landscape of the Hampstead Ranch just north of Greenwood on Hwy 3.

Acceptance into the showing means her painting will be hung from Oct 8 to 27 at the FCA gallery on Granville Island.

Heather attended the opening reception and said it was, “a wonderful night.” “I got to talk to lots of artists and to talk like an artist,” she said with an amused laugh.

“It was amazing—I had never been in that type of environment and wasn’t sure what to expect.”

Heather, who says she’s been ‘the artist’ forever in her family, invites you to follow her creative life on Facebook (Heather Hollingsworth Art).

Her work is shown in the Boundary at the Arts on 3 Gallery in the Christina Lake Welcome Centre and at Kettle River Woodcraft in Rock Creek.

Heather is a member of the Central Okanagan chapter of the FCA. Metis artist Dennis Weber, SFCA of the same chapter gave a pastel portrait workshop last weekend that Heather attended.

She said she would be putting her work from this workshop on her Facebook page soon.
