 Travelling My Way?

You are Invited to this Community Event at 

the Saturna Café 

 Saturday April 15:  3 pm to 5 pm 

Travelling My Way?  is the title that invites you to the new art show at the Saturna Café, presented from April 1-26.  

You are invited to enjoy an artist-hosted reception with snacks, wine (cash bar and perhaps even wine-tasting hosted by Shane) ... as well as art on  April 15 , from 3 pm to 5pm.

The show features a selection of paintings by local artist, Janet Strayer, created during her recent months of travel and living in Provence, Umbria, Sicily, and Mexico. It was a real 'freedom trip' after much confinement, and the show reflects this in its variety and sense of exploration and wonder. 

Back home now on Saturna Island, Janet's show shares many experiences en route.
For example, the painting below (Postcards from Pirandello) is reminiscent of wonderful times spent in Italy, a renaissance culture of past and present in  a painting that mixes  absurd and sublime elements of Italian life.

Her Birdwoman character (shown on Cafe wall with a bit of light glare from window) re-appears in different guises and settings, as do paintings inspired by the different moods, sights, and sensations of travelling and life in interesting locations.


Come see the show in April, and jope to see you at the reception on April 15!
