Welcome to Art at the Inn, a celebration of local artists.

Starting April 26th and running through till July 14th, 2019 we will be showcasing three of Galiano Islands most respected artists, Michelle Fox, Kia L Hardy and Stella Kingscote.  Their artwork will be featured in the Atrevida Restaurant, Lounge and private meeting room. 
You are welcome to come view the artwork during Inn hours, 7 days a week from 8am till 9pm.

Michelle Fox

I'm exploring abstract themes rooted in nature.  Living on Galiano I am surrounded and have a deep reverance for nature and the plants and animals that live close to me.  The bracken, dried sees heads, pollen and the chorus of frogs in the spring, all influence my work.  In this body of work I'm working with acrylic on larger canvas than I've ever used before.  I am enjoying the freedom and flow of a larger canvas.

Kia L Hardy

Kia's work displays a clear yet complex relationship with her natural and psychic environment.  There is a playful and strong use of lines, patterns, symbolism and colour.  Kia has raised two daughters on Galiano and remains true to her calling as an artist and illustrator.  A genuine modern woman, fearlessly embracing her visual past and allowing it to guide her present exploration of imagery.

Stella Kingscote

I am a young artist living on Galiano for the time being.  From a very young age I was influenced by my mother, Kia, and her art.  I would sit by her for hours on end, observing her put meaning, and even a little bit of her soul into each of her creations.  I wondered what her secret was, and how I could achieve putting my soul into my creations.  It was from then on that I knew art was going to be one of my passions.  For now I go through phases of various styles and techniques.  In this art show I will be displaying a little bit of everything.
