OUT OF AFRICA and BEYOND
March 2nd-March 30th, 2023
Artist Reception: March 9th, 6pm-9pm
I was very fortunate to be born into a family of many artistic interests that allowed me exposure to art since early in life in my native Mexico. Oil paintings soon became a passion and as a young adult I started doing local group exhibits that woke up the desire to do more. Now a multi media artist mainly dedicated to WATERCOLOURS. I am inspired by the beauty and freedom of Wild Life worldwide and Nature as I am completely captivated by the beauty of British of Columbia, where I have spent most of my life, as well as being inspired by a well travelled life experience through different cultures of the world, that allow me to bring into my art a very personal interpretations of OILS, ACRYLICS and WATERCOULOURS.
I have been a participant in solo and group Art Exhibitions as well as being an active member of the North Van Arts Council contributing to different programs. Also an active member of the North Shore Artists Guild participating in various group exhibits as well as appointed to the Board of Directors 2021-2022. Now, also taking part as an active member of the International Watercolour Society of Canada (IWS/CANADA) participating in International Contests and online events with International recognition on Watercolour. Currently, I am proud to represent British Columbia at IWS CANADA as well as being a member of the CANADIAN SOCIETY of PAINTERS in WATERCOLOUR (CSPWC), and most recently becoming an instructor on Watercolours.
My artwork is enjoyed in both private and corporate collections throughout North America.
Tucked in at the far end of the Tasting Room is Charles Clark. No, he's not a bar regular but our flex gallery space where we host rotating art exhibitions, born of the idea of making art accessible in unexpected places.

LAST MONTHS ARTIST
A collaborative exhibit by Strange Fellows staff and alum.
February 2nd-February 28th, 2023
Artist Reception: February 17th
Sometimes the ones we have the most in common with fly under the radar. They could be the person who shares your exact bus route, the one who frequents your favourite cafe, or a coworker in a different department. They live alongside you, offering an almost surreal comfort with their presence, and occasionally (if you’re lucky), you find out there is more to your familiar stranger than you could have imagined.
This exhibit was created to offer a platform for some of our staff and alum to showcase their incredible artistry. We are extremely fortunate to have drawn such creative people to our brewery, and it is clear that they are part of what makes Strange Fellows the unique and special place it is.
