The Art Gallery of Golden is hosting an art exhibit of watercolour paintings that reflect the  local landscapes around Golden.

The exhibit, that opened on May 24, will highlight the works of Nelson artist Bruce Martin.

Martin has been involved with painting and drawing for most of his life, with many of his inspirations coming from the mountains.

He has shown a special affection in his paintings for the wilderness areas of Banff, Jasper and Yoho National Parks. This show titled  “Mountain  Wanderings”, demonstrates his exceptional talent.

Martin uses his watercolours to show a wide range which flows from representational to pure abstract. His paintings have appeared in numerous juried exhibits and are held in private collections in Canada and the United States.

There will be an artists reception at the Art Gallery of Golden on June 1 from 3 to 5 p.m.  that will give people the chance to meet Martin and tour the exhibit.
