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. 

May 2016 we were asked if we could hang a show at the Old Crow Cafe in the Village of Gabriola.  Stunning original art was hung by the 11 members.

June 1- September 1 the Group of Several studied the Group of Seven.  This show of 4 large composite GOS paintings is hanging at the Gabriola Royal Lepage Realty office.  Wow!  We did it.  It is our "signature" style to do a composite.  But this time we chose Mountains and Lakes by Lawren Harris and Mirror Lake by Franklin Carmichael.  We also painted our own individual favourite GO7 pieces.  These paintings have taken 2 months, so with a quick addition of the composite Gardens and Gates to hang in another area of the Realty Office we got the project done.  Whew.

August 20-21st Gabriola Island Street Art arrives along with the weekend series of Plays.  Don't miss this island event.  The Group of Several has 3 booths on Lochinvar street, with all those chickens and roosters and eggs available.  

 

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.
