We hosted our first post-pandemic White Rock Art Show at our 2nd location in the Semiahmoo Shopping Centre featuring 2 internationally acclaimed artists May 27th through 29th.

Brent Heighton, Romantic Impressionist

Brent Heighton, a long time South Surrey resident, is one of Canada's most popular artists, known for his floral and landscape paintings. He depicts scenes from Europe, Mexico, and the ponds, lakes and forests of British Columbia in an impressionistic style. His watercolors, oils and acrylics have won many awards, and are found in corporate and private collections in more than 25 countries.

Brent is an explorer by nature, constantly trying out innovative techniques. He paints with intensity and economy, rarely wasting a motion or brush stroke, and is often called upon to give instruction in the art of painting.

Jonn Einerssen, Seascape Artist

Jonn Einerssen's original oil paintings are distinguished by a harmonious play of light and colour. His bold and realistic works are inspired by the raw, uncontrolled power of nature, and wide open spaces of the oceans and prairies.

Combined, Brent & Jonn have over 100 years as professional artists. They have shared many painting expeditions together. Following in the footsteps of Emily Carr, they painted through Haida Gwaii, the Great Bear Rainforest, and up into the Rockies on horseback.

Both artists are excited about the return of in-person art shows and will be in attendance on Friday and Saturday to entertain visitors with anecdotes about their adventures.
