Artists and sisters-in-law, Judy Coutts and Judy Mackenzie will soon be holding their third annual art show, “Related Styles” at the Sorrento Drop In Centre located at the Sorrento Hall.

Coutts, a former local resident, grew up in Carlin, and now calls Rosedale home.

She paints primarily in oils and watercolours and chooses to portray animals, birds, assorted wildlife, flowers and landscapes, with horses being her specialty.

She belongs to several painting groups, including the Agassi Monday Painters, the Golden Palette Group of Cultus Lake, and the Chilliwack Visual Artist Association.

Coutts also takes ongoing lessons with well-known artist Dawn Karr.

Mackenzie, who is married to Coutts’ brother John, lives in Chase, where she is the proud owner and sole artist of her home-based Magpie Gallery.

Her medium of choice is acrylics, painting predominantly local landscapes, which include wild flowers, water and animals.

Throughout the years, she has exhibited her artwork in several galleries, both locally and in Alberta.

She belongs to the Thompson/Nicola/Shuswap Chapter of the Federation of Canadian Artists, the Kamloops Art Council and the Shuswap Lake Festival of the Arts Association.

Mackenzie also teaches classes and workshops at her gallery, as well as in conjunction with the Kamloops Art Council.

This art show runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Aug. 7 and 8, and will feature a selection of the artist’s best new works.

Refreshments will be served, and there will be two door prizes drawn.
