Dawne Brandel

Dawne BrandelDawne was born in Kelowna B.C. surrounded by lakes, orchards and the four seasons. From an early age she has always loved the arts, immersing herself in art classes all through school. Drawing and composition classes at The Alberta College of Art solidified the desire to take it to the next level.

Floral design and horticulture became a passion where she spent most of her adult career. The floral arts teach all about composition, texture, design and color that influence her paintings today. Retirement from floristry has allowed the time commitment to paint.

Dawne is a member of The Federation of Canadian Artists and has received numerous awards for her work in juried shows. She displays her work at The Old School House Gallery at Qualicum Beach and Tutt Street Gallery in Kelowna. Her work has been published in numerous publications including Arabella Art Magazine.

I love to work with color and pattern, layering the paint for rich effects. The pieces are always evolving. The force of nature especially in flowers and trees always inspires me. Plants have such incredible beauty, strength and changeability.

Guidelines

 Guidelines for Showing Paintings at the Beach Club Resort Hotel in Parksville

 

It is wise to check out the cases at the Beach Club before you decide what work you wish to display.

 

• The cases are through the front entrance and to the right beyond reception.

• There are 5 display cases W 29” x H 46” x D 51/2”

• Vertical paintings are a better fit

• Two smaller paintings will work as well.

• As the lighting in each case is a simple pot light at the top of each case, a thinner frame allows more light on your work. The wider Gallery canvases will be acceptable.

• The background in the cases is charcoal so lighter works with dark frames work well.

 There is a 15% commission on sold pieces The Beach Club will handle the sales and issue a cheque to the artist.

 

Check list for your showing:

1.  A bio on 8x11sheet of paper. It will be mounted in a frame that is on site. One with a photo is preferable.

2. Labels for your work will be prepared for you by Janet Hilts at janet_hilts@hotmail.com. For continuity in the display we ask you to not make your own as we have the logo and we add “For sales please see the front desk staff”
a) Please send your information: Title, medium, price, your name, and FCA status to Pat at least 10 days beforehand so she can prepare your labels and send them back to you on pdf file. You can then print them out on card stock or paper.
b) Please mount them on foam core or matt board.

3. A price list of all your pieces with Title and Price and your contact information, i.e.name, phone, email, and address on a separate 8x11 piece of paper. This information is for the staff to notify you of sales of your work.

4. A photo and bio of yourself to janet_hilts@hotmail.com for our website to announce who is the Artist of the Month at the Beach Club.


5. On hanging day please bring a hammer, measuring tape if needed, and hangers, preferably not too large, and putty for mounting your labels.


We ask that you please do not disturb the staff at the reception desk.

 

All arrangements to hang your art work are made with Jacqueline Smith and in my absence Laura Hilts.
