The Station House Gallery welcomes artists Shannon Williamson and Crystalynn Tarr for a nearly month-long showing from Oct. 7 to 29.

Williamson, a former Williams Lake resident, grew up with an appreciation and love of the land that would fill her canvases and inspire her in the studio.

Though many of her hours are spent at the gallery, Williamson maintains a strong studio practice and teaches workshops dedicated to Encaustic painting — an ancient process of mixing pigment and beeswax.

Crystalynn Tarr grew up in Prince George and studied art and English eventually achieving the art award in her Grade 12 year.

Landscapes and specifically mountains began to creek into her art and in 2010 she earned the Toni Onley award/scholarship for a painting she submitted at arts fest.

Art is constantly evolving as Tarr experiments, learns new techniques and tries new things both on canvas and in life.

The public is invited to drop by throughout the month of October to check out the exhibits.
