Art of Marti Mussell on display at Community Office

"A moment in space, a moment in time" Acrylic.
On display at Community Office
Dear Saanich South,

I'm very pleased to announce that my community office is now showing the artwork of Marti Mussell.

Marti is a long-time resident of Saanich South and is well known in the Victoria artist community with showings most recently at the Sooke Fine Art Show, the Sidney Fine Art Show and the Martin Bachelor Gallery. Her work has also been displayed at Saanich Municipal Hall, Glendale Gardens and as far afield as as the David Guzman National Art Museum in El Salvador.

Marti's work is abstract and beautifully textured. She uses a range of mediums and techniques including pastel, ink, collage and printmaking. She says "the themes of place and time are important to me - I have been using leaves in recent work because of their textures and because they are so evocative of a specific place and the passing of time."

Thank you Marti for sharing your artwork with Saanich South! The community is welcome to drop by the office Monday-Thursday 9:30am-5:00pm.
