New Year sees new landscapes at Nadine’s

Vernon artist Mary Tremayne is showing her new landscapes as the featured artist at Nadine’s Fine Art and Frames for the month of January.

Vernon-based artist Mary Tremayne is the artist of the month for January at Nadine’s Fine Art and Frames.

A well-known Vernon artist is showing her new landscapes as the featured artist at Nadine’s Fine Art and Frames for the month of January.

Mary Tremayne is a painter and potter whose work is owned and collected by numerous locals.

“Mary is an incredible artist and her landscapes are beautiful, loose mixed-media pieces, brilliant in colour and presentation,” said gallery owner Nadine Wilson.

Tremayne has been  exhibiting her paintings at Nadine’s Fine Art and Frames since 2005. Her artist of the month contributions are inspired from a trip she took to Scotland a year ago.

It was while there that Tremayne noticed similarities between the Scottish and Okanagan terrain.

She made numerous coloured sketches, and developed mixed media pieces with tissue, newsprint and acrylic on return to her studio.

Born and raised in Montreal and educated at McGill University, Tremayne taught art in Montreal, Victoria and Vernon before deciding to continue her fine art career full time.

A member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, Tremayne’s studio in East Hill is where she makes her functional pottery, sculptures, porcelain wall hangings.

She also paints commissions for people in Vernon and across Canada and the U.S.

“One of her strengths is her watercolour house commissions, which I have seen often. They are spectacular,” said Wilson.

Many locals also know Tremayne as a familiar face at the Vernon Farmers Market, where she shows and sells her work twice a week for six months of the year.

An open house for Tremayne’s exhibition is Jan. 7 from 7 to 9 p.m.  Nadine’s is located at 3101 31st Ave. More information on  the artist is available at marytremayne.com.
