The show will be available for viewing on online at www.artsociety.ca, along with details on how to buy pieces.

Also in early June, the society will present another in its sucessful series of online workshops for members and non-members.

The Gold Leaf Mixed Media Class with Sonya Iwasiuk — scheduled for June 5 — described by member Lynn Robinson as a “whimsical” class to help artists discover the possibilities of adding the richness of gold leaf to their work.

Participants will learn the techniques of image transfer and best methods for applying imitation gold leaf to an embossed background.

Also covered will be how to create and apply hand-made gold leaf paper, as well as the different kinds of molding pastes availble and their individual properties.

Participants will also receive tips on ways to use colour behind gold leaf, and how to gesso a panel quickly and smoothly with a “secret” tool.
