Kootenay Lake Resort - News and Updates

Artist in Residence August 26th

We are excited to announce that talented artist Kate O'Keefe will be painting in watercolours at the Wing Creek Retreat Centre on Monday August 26th from 10 am to 1 pm.

Kate is the feature artist at Wing Creek Resort for the Kaslo Art Walk this year and we are delighted for her to show off her talent in real time for guests and visitors to the resort. Please join us on August 26th and see how Kate creates her beautiful works of art! 

Kate writes: Nature inspires my work. I have been surrounded by wild places all my life...nature itself has many ideas to impart... Watercolour is both an expressive medium and a frustrating one. As I learn and experiment, the challenges lose their frustrations and become incorporated into my style. I strive to convey the essence of the scene which inspires me. Most of my work is representational, like Poppies [currently on display in the Wing Creek Retreat Centre] from a moment caught in my garden.

Come see Kate in action and admire her existing works of art, bringiing life to the Wing Creek Retreat Centre. Everyone is welcome!
