A very special welcome to our October pop-up artists! Stop by the Steveston Museum & Post Office to see their beautiful work. A percentage of all art sales goes towards SHS programs and events that support our community.
Special Artist Demo for Culture Days:
Drop in Sat. Oct. 14th between 1:00pm and 3:00pm and meet Marsha Hoggan as well as Denise & Jeremy Nichol. Marsha will be painting her pottery designs and discussing her process. Denise will demonstrate and discuss the process and creation of her beach glass art and what inspires her other work. Jeremy will show several different types of painting mediums and different brands of oil paints and their qualities.
Marsha Lynn Hoggan
Marsha Hoggan is a local Richmond, BC artist who began making pottery in 2005. Her functional work is mainly porcelain, which she fell in love with early on in her pottery endeavours. Celadon is a favourite glaze for Marsha’s porcelain pottery and has been used for thousands of years on both porcelain and stoneware pottery. Marsha says, “it appeals to me not only for the cool lightness of its look on porcelain, but for its historical value as well.” Marsha also works with clay as it has endless possibilities and has allowed her to experiment with Raku as well as sculpting.
Denise and Jeremy Nichol
Denise Nichol is a self-taught painter influenced by her love of travel, nature and the flavours of diverse cultures. Jeremy Nichol is a digital designer and artist. This mother and son duo are also avid beach cleaners, up-cycling found broken and ocean smoothed sea glass from local beaches into expressive framed art pieces.
