The Mackie Lake House Foundation (MLHF) and Vernon Public Art Gallery (VPAG) are pleased to announce the 2015 Mackie Lake House Artist-in-Residence Jan Poynter, a Sunshine Coast based artist, illustrator, and educator. Poynter works in a variety of genres which include landscapes, images of urban environments, flora, plein air, and figurative painting in addition to her drawings and illustrations.
Poynter’s exhibition at the Vernon Public Art Gallery will feature a selection of paintings, linocut prints, and sketches produced in her studio and during her residency at the Mackie Lake House where she will be creating from May 11 until May 31, 2015.
The Mackie Lake House Artist-in-Residence program started in 2010 and in 2012 the MLHF created a partnership with VPAG where the Mackie Lake house offers the artist the space and time to create, and the VPAG mounts an exhibition and provides a working space if needed. Since the Artist-in-Residence Program beginning in 2010, the participating artists have been Angie Francis, Edie McIntyre, Joyce Devlin, James Postill, Michael Markowsky, and Jan Poynter.
