Plein Air Painting Workshop (Osoyoos Desert Centre)

July 13 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm


Join celebrated artist Dale Matthews in the iconic Antelope-brush landscape of the Osoyoos Desert Centre. Dale will demonstrate a wash technique, drawing into a painting, and various methods using frisket, plastic cards, knives, and sticks.

Dale Matthews, FCA was born in 1938 in Rossland, BC. From an early age Dale preferred drawing and painting the mountains to digging gold from them. He completed high school in Rossland before attending the Vancouver School of Art (now Emily Carr University of Art + Design), receiving a degree in fine art in 1961.

Dale worked as a commercial artist and architectural renderer in Toronto and Edmonton before establishing his own interior design firm in Vancouver. He is now retired and living in Summerland, where he is happy to devote his time to painting and traveling. His paintings reflect his love and passion for the outdoors as well as the heritage architecture of the west. Western artists such as Charlie Russell and William Matthews have been a great inspiration to him. Dale’s work has been exhibited at the National Gallery, Ottawa; Deep Cove Gallery, North Vancouver; Seymour Art Gallery; Vancouver Art Gallery; Summerland Art Gallery; Spruce Meadows, Calgary; Tumbleweed Gallery, Penticton; and the Penticton Art Gallery. His paintings are enjoyed in a number of private collections throughout Canada and the US.

ALL SKILL LEVELS AND MEDIUMS ARE WELCOME. To register call the office at 250-495-2470.
