Shows and Events

January 6th, 2016 to February 6th, the Group of Several completed the series of "Which Comes First the Chicken or the Egg"  for the Gabriola Medical Clinic lobby foyer.  The 32 paintings, in 3 frames, have been well received and the new "RedDotClub" has its first Art Patron as a collector.  The RedDotClub is a new idea, to give viewers an opportunity to purchase individual pieces when the Art Series displays within a grouping.  Since the opening 11 paintings were sold, one as a grouping of 8.

The Gabriola Medical Center is showing our individual paintings, and these ones are all about BOATS.  There are 10 Group of Several artists hanging their individual paintings.

Member News

The GROUP of SEVERAL evolved from committed art assistants with the After School Art Club which are the 4-7 grade school students of Gabriola Island BC. The Students fundraise and attend of their own initiative, under the guidance of their teacher Alix Hodson.
Judith Madsen, is one of the invited artists who teach. Madsen is a passionate art teacher and believes that art helps students think creatively outside and inside boxes; to have a joyful outlet in their lives; to sit quietly and focus and best of all, to accomplish their own individual work of art.

Since 2006, Judith has been contributing as one of the instructors . in 2013, she agreed to teach the volunteers as well. The GROUP of SEVERAL was formed and took off as strongly as the childrens' group has done. It is now January 2016, and the GOS currently has 11 members.  The work within the group is strengthening with every show opportunity.

Programs

The Group of Several, or GOS is of course more than two GOSlings. Tuesdays we paint at the Rollo Centre on Gabriola Island and receive a wealth of information from demonstrations and ideas from members.
On Fridays we paint all afternoon with great seriousness and only a slight amount of GOSsiping. We showcase our art throughout the island. The painting is hung with individual pieces and a theme.
Each of us has a very distinct style. The Painting Grouping is unique.

Meetings

March 2013 is our anniversary date. Currently there are 11 active members in 2016.


MISSION:  The Group of Several are committed artists who immerse themselves in the creative process by painting, showing, sharing and learning, in an environment of joy, camaraderie and encouragement.

Formal and informal minutes are written for the monthly meetings. There is a yearly membership fee of $20 to cover our costs.
As the opportunity arises, we share individual workshop instruction.
Currently we paint a standard size, 12x12, 11x14 or 12x24 to create a group painting. Size limits for grouping of themed paintings are not written in stone, but certainly in mud. We try to take on the challenge of a new series a number of times a year.
