Welcome to Art at the Inn, a celebration of local artists.Starting October 11th and running through till November 26th, 2019 we will be showcasing the beautiful artwork of Ms. Sarah Tweedale, a local Galianoite. Sarah has nurtured a life-long curiosity and fascination with the natural world. From her earliest days looking for crabs and bugs on the beach, exploring forest paths on the lookout for wildflowers and strange fungi, and watching for birds and animals, she has been learning and delighting in all that she sees.The Biodiversity Galiano project offered a way to share her ‘discoveries’ and learn from others in the process.
Honing a photographer’s eye for beauty hiding in the subtle and obscure, Sarah has documented a diversity of species both large and small. Captured in her photographs are well over a hundred lifeforms—from plants to lichens, moths to birds—confirming more than 30 historical records while adding several new species to the list. Her most notable observations so far include the first report of Methuselah’s Beard (Usnea longissima) for the southern Gulf Islands and the first reported evidence of the threatened barn owl (Tyto alba) for Galiano.
You are welcome to come view the artwork during Inn hours, Monday and Tuesday 8am till 6pm and Wednesday thru Sunday 8am till 9pm.
