New Works by Jennifer McIntyre and Wendy Oppelt will be featured at Eclectic Gallery in the Oak Bay Village until Sept. 1.

A dedicated arts educator, McIntyre comes from a long line of artists.

Named Pacific Arts Educator of the Year by the U.S. National Art Education Association, she currently teaches in the Faculty of Art Education at the University of Victoria.

Her colourful acrylic paintings express a joyful exuberance as each original work explores composition, pattern and light in new ways.

McIntyre’s paintings have been highlighted at Glendale Gardens, the MacPherson Library Gallery at UVic, the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria Art Rental, the Sooke and Sidney Fine Arts shows, and a recent Artishow residency at the Ocean Point Resort.

Oppelt was born in Edmonton and went on to live in Calgary, Vancouver and Adelaide, Aus. before settling in Victoria, where she paints from her home studio.

An acomplished artist, Oppelt presents work drawing on Oriental themes in acrylic, oil, pastel and watercolour.

Her work has been featured at the Cedar Hill Gallery, Sooke Harbour House Gallery, Victoria International Airport and Artishow, a plein air art event on the lawn of the Fairmont Empress Hotel.

The show runs until Sept. 1 with an artists reception this evening (Wed., Aug.15) from  6 to 8 p.m. during the Oak Bay Summer Market.
