Mural Unveiling Today at 2:30pm

Exciting event TODAY at 2:30pm at the Barkerville Gold Mines Building across from the Bear's Paw in Wells, BC. We are unveiling the incredible mural painted by Peter Corbett as part of the BGM sponsorship of Island Mountain Arts. Here is a photo of the original sketch that Peter did for the mural and a photo of the mural in progress at Peter's studio. Come see the large scale completed mural today at 2:30pm! A huge thanks to Peter Corbett for creating such a beautiful painting and to BGM for supporting Island Mountain Arts.

Peter Corbett is considered by many to be one of western Canada’s leading plein air oil painters. Peter creates small field paintings out of doors then uses these as reference material for much larger pieces created in the studio. Working from nature and the ever-changing light brings a loose spontaneity to his work. Peter’s studio practice also includes abstract and figurative motifs using a variety of different mediums. Peter’s work has been shown extensively in both public and commercial galleries, been the recipient of numerous awards and grants and has been a mentored and teacher in various capacities.

Peter is also a professional biologist, former outdoor adventure guide, and loves to share his enthusiasm for nature while painting out of doors.
