Trees: As we breathe with West Coast Canadian Artist Terrill Welch

Large oil paintings of trees, mostly arbutus trees,  grace the walls of the Terrill Welch Gallery from Friday, May 18, 2018 to Sunday, July 23, 2018. A very few smaller plein air sketches and studies provide balance and perspective to these larger canvases.

Trees: As we breathe is an invitation, a reminder to our human connect to trees for our very breath. Rendered in each brushstroke is Canadian west coast landscape artist Terrill Welch’s passion and pure pleasure in trees.

The paintings are about the elegance of this often forgotten relationship as we race towards deadlines, commitments, dreams, goals and personal expectations for human achievement.

This show is about giving a nod, taking a pause and being like the trees we so rely on for life. This show is about love, beauty and aging in place. This show is about loss, companionship and spirals of time.

The paintings in this show can be viewed in the online gallery collection by the same name “Trees: As we breathe” HERE.

Directions to visit (along with days and hours open) the Terrill Welch Gallery in-person are available HERE.

Earth and Water: A Conversation on Edge with artists Terrill Welch and Elena Maslova-Levin

Opening the season at the Terrill Welch Gallery is a two artist international exhibition, April 13 — May 13, 2018 on Mayne Island in British Columbia, Canada.

Earth & Water: A Conversation on Edge with Terrill Welch and Elena Maslova-Levin

Sixteen landscapes. A multitude of conversations.

The timeless conversation between Earth and Water, shaping the edges of continents and islands we inhabit.

The conversation between the observer and the observed, shaping our visible reality.

And between the artist and nature, from which paintings emerge and invite the spectator to take part in the conversation.

And finally, the conversation between artists, in words and in paintings — an ongoing exchange of insights and impressions, challenges and breakthroughs.

Preview all sixteen paintings and learn more about the artists and the show HERE.

Also, a short video of the show is now available for your viewing pleasure.

On Friday, April 13th Elena Maslova-Levin and Terrill Welch will do a live video chat from the Art of Terrill Welch Facebook Page at 11:00 am PDT to open the show.

Light of Place Exposed Landscapes By Terrill Welch

Each place and each moment has its own light and to expose this everyday mystery is something that is often behind the brush marks of Canadian artist Terrill Welch. She has twenty landscape oil paintings that will be traveling up the province of British Columbia to be shown in the Williams Lake public gallery during the month of April, 2018.

A Tall Tale of Autumn Stuart River 16 x 12 inch oil on canvas is the poster painting for this show and you can preview all twenty paintings in the solo exhibition at her online gallery HERE.

Solo exhibition “Light of Place Exposed, Landscapes by Terrill Welch” can be viewed in the main gallery at The Station House Gallery in Williams Lake, British Columbia from Thursday, April 5th to Saturday, April 28th of 2018.

The Station House Gallery Hours: Monday  – Saturday 10:00 am to 5:00 pm and Closed Sundays.

In the Williams Lake Tribune – “Light ripples through the Station House Gallery” by Tara Sprickerhoff April 11, 2018

How to get to The Station House Gallery: To get to the gallery is straightforward. The address is 1 Mackenzie Ave N., Williams Lake, B.C. and if you are coming from the north or south, just take the main Oliver street right into downtown from the four way stop on the highway and drive to the end where it meets Mackenzie Ave Noth. The gallery will be directly in front of you. However, if you like circle routes when you are traveling , turn at Mackenzie Ave N. if coming in from the north and drive into Williams Lake on this street until you get to Oliver Street. The Station House Gallery will be on your Right. You can then take Oliver Street to meet up with the highway south again. Of course if you are coming from the south it is the same in reverse.

Terrill Welch will be present for the opening of the exhibition on the evening of Thursday April 5, 2018 starting at 5:00 pm and she will say a few more words about the show then.

Pre-sales are welcomed by either the Terrill Welch Gallery or The Station House Gallery. All sold work will be shipped, delivered or available for pick up at the end of the exhibition.

Exposing The Mystery In An Ordinary Day

Recently Terrill Welch was asked what her art was about.

“I am a landscape painter, exposing the mystery in ordinary day” she replied, “want to see?”

With several large canvases prepped with grounds and underpaintings waiting for her in the winter studio and material being reworked for a new online teaching of oil painting classes starting early in the new year, a few moments were taken up with creating a short glimpse into Terrill’s work… so we can “see” what this Canadian landscape artist is doing. She will be thrilled if you take a second or two and watch the short video, leave a comment and share with others who might be interested. Enjoy!

The Terrill Welch Gallery is now closed until early April, except by appoint to visit the winter studio or her home studio. However, work is always available 24/7 in her online gallery. This has been a good year finding homes for paintings. So far, almost as many works left on adventures of their own as were released. However,  “available” works showing in the online gallery are current. So feel free to browse away HERE.

Also, beyond the showing of work in the Terrill Welch Gallery, there are two new solo exhibitions scheduled  for 2018 in public gallery spaces. If you are traveling in these areas of British Columbia or you are close by and want to make a special trip to see the work, specific details are below.

The first solo exhibition opening April 5th at The Station House Gallery in Williams Lake, British Columbia. The “Light of Place Exposed, Landscapes by Terrill Welch” show can be viewed in the main gallery until April 28th.

The second solo exhibition “Between Islands on the Salish Sea” will be at the Galiano Public Library on Galiano Island, British Columbia from September 10 to October 26, 2018.

Still and Not So Still Life show at the Terrill Welch Gallery

A summer harvest of colour. “Happy paintings!” visitors keep saying with bold sunflowers, plump golden plums, red tumbling pears, gestural roses and more catching the light across oil painted canvases.

These works by landscape painter Terrill Welch are seldom shown. Her rolling seas, curving arbutus and stoic towering fir trees are much better known to us. However, with the Terrill Welch Gallery we have pulled together this still life body of work for your viewing pleasure.

The “Still and Not So Still Life” show will be up from Sept 1 – and extended to Oct 1, 2017. A video preview of the show is available on Youtube at:

There is also a guest painting by Elena Maslova-Levin displayed in a place of honour in this show. “Dancing Pears” is a 9 x 12 inch oil on linen canvas board and the first painting that Terrill Welch added by this artist to her private collection. This cameo appearance is the only beginning of the gallery’s sharing of Maslova-Levin’s work with a more extensive show anticipated in April 2018 with the artist visiting the gallery in person from the San Francisco Bay Area in California.

More about Elena Maslova-Levin (Lena Levin) and her work is available HERE.
