August Artists share Pop-Up Art Space at the Steveston Museum and Post Office

Margot D’souza, Marilyn Piccinin and Donna Gregory Wood are three talented friends who will be sharing Pop-Up Art space alongside Jenifer Gustavsen at the Steveston Museum and Post Office for the month of August.

Jenifer Gustavsen – In her first ever art show, we are pleased to welcome Jenifer Gustavsen as one of our Pop-Up Artists for the month of August. Jenifer has a long history with marking art primarily as a classic animator (hand drawn animation), with film credits including Dreamworks films such as Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, Road to Eldorado, and Sinbad, Legend of the Seven Seas. She has a master’s degree in archaeology and majored in art from a variety of cultures. Jenifer’s research into the brain’s response to making realistic art drove her to try her hand at oil painting and the results are absolutely stunning. Instagram at @ars_oilpainting.

Margot D’souza is a local artist, Steveston resident for over 48 years and member of the Richmond Artists Guild, Richmond Arts Coalition and Men in Hats Plein Air painters. She has a passion for drawing, oil painting and photography and gets her inspiration from photos or sketches made while traveling the world and being in nature.

Marilyn Piccinin, also a Richmond resident, has been painting for a long time, and started with “tole painting” – a decorative form of painting in oil or acrylic. Marilyn now prefers watercolour and paints and paints weekly with a group of local artists.

Donna Gregory Wood has called Steveston home for over 30 years. Since retiring from Children’s Hospital she spends most of her time exploring the outdoors, especially walks at Garry Point, Britannia Shipyards and the West Dyke. She discovered bird photography after receiving a camera as a gift and now has an immense passion for birds – learning about them, photographing them and even painting bird portraits using oil and acrylics.
