Delbrook Community Art Gallery

The Delbrook Community Art Gallery offers opportunities for local artists to showcase their work.

Group Exhibit: Sharka Leigh, Tana Lynn & Marguerite Mahy

March 5 to April 5, 2020

Organized in conjunction with the North Shore Art Crawl, this group exhibit features the work of three very different artists all working in acrylics.  Through the very different aesthetics that each artist adopts the exhibit offers a fascinating blend of perspectives on art making and on life.

Sharka Leigh

Sharka is an acrylic painter from North Vancouver.  She paints varied subject matter, though she most often focuses on her favourite animal, cows.  Her work is recognizable by its combination of composition, unusual subject matter and detailed style. Cows have a strong presence that makes most people smile.  Her emphasis on capturing the affection and personality in the subject’s face shows through every time.  This is accomplished by focusing on the colours, the eyes and of course, an interesting pose.

Tana Lynn

Tana has always painted; she is captivated by good design and loves working with colour.  She began painting when she was in high school but it wasn’t until her late 40's that she sold her first pieces.  Tana's work embraces the imperfections she sees rather than questions them.  In the end, you look at it, and see beauty through it all.  Her style is heavily influenced by mid-century modern and a love of minimalism, simplicity, and clean negative spaces.

Marguerite Mahy

Marguerite emigrated from Guernsey to Montreal in 1966 and to Vancouver in 1970.  She has been painting for many years.  Her primary subjects reflect her love of BC scenery.  Marguerite has taken workshops with and also exhibited with the Federation of Canadian Artists, the North Shore Artist Guild, the Ferry Building and the Silk Purse galleries.  Her artwork can be found in private collections across Canada, England, France and Mexico.
