Art of Terrill Welch Gallery is Expanding

The Art of Terrill Welch Gallery is adding another gallery room to our location. This new room will allow the gallery to show both more of Terrill’s paintings and a small number of highly curated new works by other artists that we are deeply familiar with.

Art of Terrill Welch Gallery

The new gallery space will be named the “Arbutus Room” and will be in the former Dragonfly location, owned by Vania Williams, which is moving next door. The Arbutus Room will be dedicated to west coast and Salish Sea landscape paintings. 

Vania Williams will also provide sales and retail support for the Art of Terrill Welch Gallery in the new Arbutus Room. This allows the Arbutus Room to be open year-round for the same hours as the Dragonfly. This arrangement will have the advantage of keeping the accessible side entrance available to Vania’s store and protect Terrill’s sacred painting time, even with the expanded gallery showings.

The Arbutus Room is anticipated to be open sometime in April or early May. Please stay tuned while we work out the details and complete the renovations. We look forward to providing you with the same great art and relaxed, personal and informed service on this new and grander scale in the near future.

Best Landscape Paintings Of The Decade 2010-2019

We are celebrating the past decade of contemporary landscape painting by our very own Canadian artist living on Mayne Island off the southwest coast of British Columbia. Terrill Welch exposes the mystery in an ordinary day. During the past decade 2010-2019, she completed over 300 contemporary landscape paintings. Of these, about 260 were released for purchase and 150 sold to private collectors in eight different countries.

From the beginning of the decade…

… to the end of the decade, our connection and enjoyment of these significant works of art is evident!

New Release of Large Landscape Painting

The last one for 2019! A new large contemporary landscape oil painting has been placed into our art gallery inventory and released…

arbutus tree large landscape painting by Canadian contemporary artist
Morning With Arbutus Trees by Terrill Welch, walnut oil on canvas 36 x 48 x 1.5 inches

View and inquire at https://www.artworkarchive.com/profile/terrill-welch/artwork/morning-with-arbutus-trees

Notes from the painter: “To stand quiet and alone with these arbutus trees during a late summer morning is to find the spirit of the place, resting next to my bones with the slow beat of my heart keeping time with their gentle rhythm.”

SOLD This Past Week

In October, this large 40 x 30 inch work left the gallery for a trial visit. However, the art collector had a challenging location and the painting didn’t work in that first desired location. But rather than giving up, she tested in another location… and then another location. The third time was charmed. We saw a sneak preview Last week and believe “When I am Among the Trees” will be most happy there, doing its job of taking the viewer for a walk through the trees into the spirit of the place. And so another large landscape painting leaves Mayne Island, and crosses the Strait of Georgia, for a more urban adventure.

We wish you all the best of the holiday season and look forward to seeing in the New Year, if not before!

Recently Sold Paintings by Contemporary Artist Terrill Welch

On this December 1st of 2019, we pause to reflect on the success of the Art of Terrill Welch Gallery during this past art season. The small seasonal gallery, with a year-round online presence, has had a good year. In fact, the best year so far! By the end of September this year, Terrill Welch had painted and released 23 new contemporary landscape paintings and 17 works had sold from her inventory of original works. Before a price increase takes effect next week, we thought we would share five of our favourite oil paintings that are now in the homes of art collectors and offer you the chance to browse the online gallery of current works still available.

Earth as to Sky, oil on canvas 30 x 40 Inches by Terrill Welch. Sold
Seaside Trail After The Rain, oil on canvas 20 x 16 inches by Terrill Welch. Sold
Serenity by the Sea, oil On Canvas 18 x 14 inches by Terrill Welch. Sold
West Coast Moment, oil on canvas 16 x 20 Inches by Terrill Welch. Sold
Trees I Truly See You, oil on canvas 20 x 16 inches by Terrill Welch. Sold

So there you go! Our heartfelt thanks to the art collectors of these contemporary landscape paintings for their patronage and those that have taken on stewardship and care of the other 18 original Canadian landscape paintings by Terrill Welch that also sold before the end of September…. and the ones have sold since then as well! Terrill is in the gallery’s winter studio painting as fast as she can to bring you more inspiring renderings like these in the near future. But there are still other great pieces available in the online gallery for your viewing pleasure. Do send us an inquiry if you find something to your liking! We will be happy to make arrangements to see that the work finds its way to you. So feel free to wander over and have a look at https://www.artworkarchive.com/profile/terrill-welch

Earth Sea and Sky Opens

Twelve of the eighteen paintings in the Art of Terrill Welch Gallery’s hottest show of the season were completed since the beginning of 2019. (Terrill Welch has completed and released 21 new works since January 1st but who is counting? 😉 Earth, Sea and Sky is a solo exhibition that is about exactly what the title describes. It is a theme that has a deep rich vein of consistency in Terrill Welch’s work and one she is not finished with just yet! The solo exhibition runs from Friday, July 12, 2019 to Sunday September 1, 2019. Two works in this show, including the “poster painting” have sold in pre-sales. Our heartfelt thanks to the art collectors who have graciously allowed these works to be shown for the opening weekend.

And here are a few images of the new show as it was freshly prepared for this weekend.

One looking towards the window and will be the first view seen as you enter the gallery…

Between Here and There with Contemporary Landscape Painter Terrill Welch

From May 17th to July 7, 2019 Canadian contemporary landscape paintings from north central to the southwest coast of British Columbia will be showing at the Terrill Welch Gallery on Mayne Island. This solo exhibition is about a painter’s life that is lived in the landscape of a province rather than a city or village. From plein air painting at her parents’ farm on the Stuart River to the first leaves on the poplar trees in the Cariboo or the smoky skies near Cache Creek and all the way to linger along the islands next to the Strait of Georgia and then further to a sunset on Chesterman Beach near Tofino, her brushes move paint swiftly and precisely across the canvases. British Columbia is a diverse landscape that is explored within the integrity of place through the vision and impressions of one painter – Terrill Welch.

From the richness of light through the rainforest canopy to an arbutus tree reaching over the edge of a cliff, you will be there, standing shoulder to shoulder with the painter inside the landscape.

Come on in and stay a while. This small Southern Gulf Islands art gallery looks forward to welcoming you for the first show of the 2019 season.

Terrill Welch Gallery Spring and Summer Season for 2019

Each season of Mayne Island’s boutique Art of Terrill Welch Gallery brings something new to its personal and Canadian welcome for viewing original paintings by internationally collected landscape painter Terrill Welch. With just a wee bit of luck, we managed to capture the artist herself stepping behind and in front of the camera this spring to bring a quick overview of what is in store at the start of the 2019 spring and summer season. We hope you enjoy this short video introduction and a brief glimpse of some of her new work that is now available.

Introduction by the artist Terrill Welch to the gallery’s spring and summer season

A quick reminder for those that are unable to come to the physical gallery that available works can be viewed and purchased online 24/7 and come with a 30 day (no questions asked) satisfaction guarantee. Also, there is now a virtual gallery show that you can learn more about in the previous post HERE.

3D and AR for the Terrill Welch Gallery

We know it is always great to visit the Terrill Welch Gallery on Mayne Island off the southwest coast of British Columbia, Canada. But what is one to do when this is not an option? We have been musing about this and have come up with an alternative experience beyond viewing works in only the online gallery. Have you ever seen a 3D gallery show? Have you ever used augmented reality or AR to try a Terrill Welch original painting out, to scale, on the walls in your own space before deciding to purchase? Well now you can!

Please note, this new technology is not meant to replace our current website and online gallery or physical gallery. This opportunity is intended to offer another value-added advantage to our fans and collectors of “Terrill Welch” original paintings by providing an online visual size-reference for both the work itself and also for the space you are considering placing it. 

Screen image of Terrill Welch Gallery 3D virtual gallery solo exhibition

3D Virtual Gallery Solo Exhibition

A few hints before you enter the 3D virtual gallery:

A laptop or tablet seem to give the best viewing experience but several people tested the gallery using their phones and enjoyed the experience as well.

Once you “enter” the exhibition it may take a few seconds to load.

Small movements in the gallery with cursor or finger have a big impact. So take it slow until you get the hang of the space.

You can move around the gallery at will or you can have a guided tour. The guided tour doesn’t give you much of a feel of scale but it does show you all the work individually.

To see a work in detail and access information about it just tap or click on the painting. On the right, there is an “i” in the row of options that you can click for more information about a piece.

When you are done looking at a specific painting you can scroll left or right or hit the “x” at the top right to exit and again move around in the gallery space.

General instructions are also available at the website HERE.

What you see should look something like this….

If this is what you see, you are in the right place to enter. On my iPand and iPhone I need to touch the image to enter. Then once you enter, there will be instruction on the upper right on how to navigate the virtual gallery. Once you have it figured out just hit the “x” to get it out of the way.

Go ahead, have a look around.

If you see something you like, zoom in.

Click the “i” for information and it will then have a link to click for price and to make an inquiry. There you go!

Augmented Reality Viewing

Now let’s move on to the second aspect of this grand new adventure. Right now there are the 24 paintings, those that are in the solo exhibition above, available for viewing in your own home or office space using the KUIO augmented reality app. However, I can add other paintings by special request and as needed.

A few hints before you try using the augmented reality technology:

Start by clicking on “get app” in the link provided HERE (you don’t need to “register”. That is for the Artist or Gallery to set up an exhibition)

Once you have the app installed on either your phone or IPad, the Selection ID 248 is what you use to access my work.

Once you search, under the number will appear “View Section: Contemporary Ca…” Click on this and you will be able to view the paintings and you will see the “view in room option”.

But first you will need to download and print the “marker” as this is what allows the technology to display the paintings in the correct size. Instructions will be provided to walk you through this step. One “marker” for all the paintings. You don’t need a different marker for each painting.

You can either use your phone or your iPad to view or take a photo of the painting in the desired location in your room. Have fun and if you have the time, we would love to hear what you think.

KUNSTMATRIX is the developer for both the 3D gallery space and the augmented reality and is based in Berlin, Germany. We suspect this technology will become more streamlined and fine-tuned over time and in a couple of years we will simple take it for granted. For now though, it is kind of exciting to be on the developmental edge of its implementation.

New York New York Juried Exhibition Terrill Welch Painting

What can we say?… as we make three copies of everything for the International Customs declarations. Since the painting is jury selected for this show, we think we will just have to do our best to get the work there, even though it means a trip to Victoria B.C. for Fedex shipping. It should be, with a bit of luck, at the New York City Gallery, in preparation for the show, by Friday, March 22, 2019!

Willows Early Spring by the Quarry Lakes, Fremont California by Terrill Welch

The Equinox Exhibition in New York, New York

is April 4 through April 26 2019

If you happen to be in the area or have friends who might be interested,

the NYA Gallery in TriBeCa is open 12 – 5 pm everyday at:

7 Franklin place, New York, NY 10013

Also, the Opening Night is April 4th from 6-9 pm and the link for eventvite tickets are HERE.

Just to add to the fun, there is a “sister painting” to this one which is available for viewing by appoint at the Terrill Welch Gallery’s winter studio during the same time as the Spring Equinox show at the NYA Gallery.

Fremont Hills California Early Spring By Terrill Welch

A coast to North American coast, reaching between two neighboring countries with two Terrill Welch paintings seems like a perfect way to start the Terrill Welch Gallery Spring season to me! What do you think?

In other Terrill Welch Gallery news – Sold!

The Terrill Welch Gallery congratulates the art collector who added this large contemporary Canadian landscape oil painting to their collection over the past couple of weeks.

The small study for this larger work refused to be left behind! So the two works will remain together in the same art collection.

Notes from the painter herself:

“A place where sea, shore, trees and home rest in harmony at the entrance to Active Pass on Mayne Island in British Columbia. There is just the right combination of resolve, peace, strength and resiliency present to fortify ones dignity and respect. It is a place where one’s inner and outer worlds seem seamless and glorious.”

Sailing Through the Trees by Terrill Welch, walnut oil on canvas, 30 x 40 inches

Choosing the right space for a painting is always an interesting challenge. We had the opportunity to exercise my “visiting rights” of another large work in the same art collector’s home while we hung the new painting. This earlier painting is across from an open staircase and allows the viewer to see it easily at various heights from up and down the stairs as well from various locations in the open plan room. The ability to basically shift the viewers perspective from sitting to standing, depending on where they are on the stairs works extremely well. 

Have you ever considered how art work in your rooms will be mostly be viewed? 

Will people be transitioning from one room to another? 

Will they often be sitting on chairs or sofas? 

Is it a standing working area or an entrance? 

Does the work require a brief glance to “get it” or does it require time to study and contemplate? 

What is the work’s purpose in the room? 

Does the work calm or energize? 

Is the art of significance by itself or has it been paired to support other decorative aspects of a room? Or both?

Just a few quick thoughts to bring to your art collecting mindset when choosing where to hang a painting. Maybe these questions will lead to a whole shift of the art in your home or office? A fresh review of the work possibly? 

Note: normally we don’t want to hang an original painting above a fireplace. In this case the fireplace is highly functional and as well as seldom used, leaving the painting at minimal risk of damage. 

Happy Spring from the Terrill Welch Gallery to YOU!
