September 21 - October 3
Originally from Scotland, Blythe Scott emigrated to Victoria, BC in 2012 and was immediately struck by how different the quality of light was in contrast to her home city. This provided her with a new opportunity to explore a brighter palette. Blythe has painted many scenes of Victoria since her arrival, but she still revisits European subject matter. Her newer work is often still inspired by the charming harbours and dramatic city and landscapes of Scotland, but the scenes now come drenched with the light of her new home. This opening coincides with the Fall Gallery Walk, and Blythe will be the artist in residence for West End Gallery.
