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.

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.
