Artist from Assiniboia attends local retreat

Alison Lewis of Assiniboia spent some time learning to paint on silk, stepping out of her comfort zone during the Artist’s Colony Retreat held at the Mother Theresa Centre in Moose Mountain Provincial Park.  She says that watercolor is her comfort zone, and she has retired from teaching art at the high school level, giving her more time to work on her passions of art.

She has worked with acrylic, clay and hand building.  She organized the Assiniboia Art Retreat and met Ken Fredrickson through the Shurniak Gallery, who invited her to attend this year’s retreat.
