A group of Wetaskiwin County artists are putting beautiful interpretations of nature on display at an upcoming sale.

“Out of the Wild Artworks,” including members Kate Ehrlich, Donna Brunner, Holle Hahn and Margot Soltice, will hosting a major show and sale this month at Purple Finch Studio west of Pigeon Lake. All of the members of the group hail from the county area between Pigeon Lake and Battle Lake.

“We’re in the country,” said Ehrlich Oct. 2. “A lot of our art is nature-inspired.”

Ehrlich said, while nature is a major influence on the artists, each lady has her own nature when it comes to creating art. But coming together to form “Out of the Wild Artworks” was a way to network and get out of the studio a bit, rejuvenate and meet other local artists. “It’s bringing out the best in each of us,” said Ehrlich.

She said the group of artists wanted to show the excellent, creative work available throughout the area. The upcoming show will illustrate the staggering variety of media these ladies enjoy.

On display will be cards and small reproductions, originals, rug-hooking with matching glazed vase, paint with pastels on sandpaper, florals and landscapes, each piece one of a kind wax cast jewelry, paintings and ceramics and much more. Ehrlich noted a variety of price points will be available, from $5 and up.

The sale will be held Saturday, Oct. 10 at Purple Finch Studio from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. To find the studio take Hwy #2 to Hwy #13, head westbound about 30 kilometers to the Battle Lake Park turnoff. Watch for sale signs.

Ehrlich said the group is also looking forward to upcoming sales in winter, spring and even into next summer.

Any questions, call Donna Brunner at 780-586-2466.
