Art 10 Gallery, located in the Nanaimo North Town Centre, has reopened after being closed for six months due to COVID-19 and members have resumed their monthly feature wall showcases.
This month, painter Keiko Bottomley is presenting her exhibition, As I Dream. Bottomley teaches flower arranging and the show features floral still lifes, as well as a painting of a colourful house in Duncan that caught her eye.
“I was going to do a real realistic [painting],” she said. “But then I thought, ‘I don’t like square, very formal shapes,’ so I made it like a child’s picture and I had fun.”
WHAT’S ON … As I Dream by Keiko Bottomley is on display at Art 10 Gallery, Nanaimo North Town Centre, until Oct. 31.
