Spectrum Show at Gage Gallery on Oak Bay Avenue, Victoria

I am pleased to announce that I will be having a show with my fellow Gage Arts Collective Member and Cedar Hill Studio Painter, June Haynes. I mostly paint landscapes, and June mostly paints abstracts, but we’re both centrist on that spectrum, and we’re also similar in how we employ bright colour.

The show runs from April 2-20 at the Gage Gallery Arts Collective at 2031 Oak Bay Avenue. I’ll be at the gallery for much of the time it’s up, check my Events Calendar page to see when you might expect to see me there.

In the Store – Misty Morning at Sombrio Beach

This was my first view after waking up in my tent and unzipping the door. The light in the mist brought focus to the trees and beach close at hand. It had been a warm summer night, and there was a fleeting cool in the air that would soon give way to the warmth of a long summer day. Looking straight up, the sky was blue – I’m used to fog and cloud being cold, but it wasn’t the case that day.

The original 24×24″ painting is available here.

Mike Lathrop’s Artwork on Display at Comox Valley Nissan

Six of my prints are now on display at Comox Valley Nissan.

Many thanks to Mark Hoskins for reaching out to me to set this up, and for holding the ladder when we hung the big one by the front reception. This is a great opportunity for me to have a place to show my work up-Island.

If you are in the market for a car, I found Mark and everyone else there was great to deal with. Also, if you are financing your vehicle purchase at Comox Valley Nissan, you have the option of buying my artwork and including the cost of it in your car payments.
