Submitted by Anita Peterson, Wellington Art Group

 

he Wellington Art Group presents Angels and Artists, a new group show featuring the works of acclaimed Artists James Wiens, Arnie Fisk, Lauren Hamilton. Ken Faulks, Leonard K. Schmidt, Sandra Wiens and introducing Jenaya Jackson.

 

The Opening reception is from 5-7 P.M. May 6 at the gallery's innovative space in historic downtown Chilliwack. Artists will be on hand to discuss their new works in a wine and cheese reception infused with live jazz.

 

More than 40 new works will be on display including landscapes, fresh floral and still life series as well as modern figurative and oversize contemporary decor pieces.
Wellington is also thrilled to introduce Jenaya Jackson, a talented young artist who will be showing her first collection to the public.

 

“Jenaya is a remarkable young artist,” says James Wiens, gallery owner. “We are proud to introduce her to the art world.”

 

Inspired by the vast beauty of the nature, artist James Wiens has been a professional artist for more than 20 years. Using the texture of wood or canvas as the base of his creations, he paints primarily in oils. Formally trained, James captures his subject matter in a style he simply describes as 'easy'. His success can be attributed to his dedication, versatility and hard work. A passionate outdoorsman and dedicated family man, his favorite times are those spent with his family.

 

“For me being an artist is who I am. I have always been an artist. There is nothing else I want to do,” says Weins.

 

"This show evolved from a new series of oversize Angel pieces I have been
working on for several months. I am interested in the connection between art and the purity of life; how we view the world and what angels mean to each of us from both a religious and non religious perspective."

 

More than 40 new works will be on display including landscapes, fresh floral
and still life series as well as modern figurative and oversize contemporary
décor pieces.
