Telling the story of a city one house at a time.
That’s the theme of my art show, currently running at the Madrona Gallery in downtown Victoria (BC, Canada). The gallery owner, Michael Warren, describes my work this way: “Nancy Ruhl paints the aspects of neighbourhoods that are often overlooked, elevating the everyday to the extraordinary and bringing a greater awareness to the unique elements of our community.”
I paint heritage homes, iconic sites, and everything else you might see on a stroll through the city.
Gallery co-owner Theresa Warren says, “Ruhl’s playful and vibrant paintings of heritage sites around the city are definitely worth checking out.”
Guest Author Bio
I am a full time artist with studios on Pender Island and in Victoria, BC. I paint primarily in acrylics in bold colours and a simple, undetailed style. When I am in Victoria during the winter, I take a lot of photos of heritage homes and familiar street scenes. Downtown, Fairfield and Ross Bay are my haunts. I use the photos for reference when I adjourn to my studio on Pender.
