Mike Lathrop Artist in Residence at the Victoria Coast Hotel for the Month of November 2020

I am pleased to announce that I am the artist in residence at the Coast Hotel here in Victoria, BC for the month of November.

Due to the pandemic, this year I won’t be painting on site, but there are roughly 40 pieces of my work hanging on the first floor of the hotel and in the attached Blue Crab restaurant. Cards, books and calendars are also on display and available for purchase.

This is the second year I’ve been at the Coast in the month of November, it is a pleasure for me to see my work on display there again this year.

Federation of Canadian Artists Landscapes 2020 Exhibition

I am pleased to announce that my painting, Gowlland Tod Arbutus has been juried in to the Federation of Canadian Artists (FCA) Show, Landscapes 2020.

To quote Tarin Mead, Fine Art Consultant at the FCA:

Members of the internationally renowned “Group of Seven”, founded our organization 79 years ago. Lawren Harris, Arthur Lismer, and A.Y. Jackson. Their depictions of Canada‚Äôs rugged wind-swept forest panoramas were eventually equated with a romanticized notion of Canadian strength and independence.

With Emily Carr as a member in the West Coast, our founders represent the most important Canadian painters of the early 20th century. The annual Landscapes Exhibition pays homage to the greats while continuing the Canadian tradition of landscape painting in the year 2020.

All the pleasure of strolling through the wilderness – none of the mosquitoes!
