Serenity featuring Serena J. Trinder

March 24 – April 17, 2017 at the Chilliwack Community Arts Council Art Room Gallery

Artist Meet & Greet on Friday, March 24 from 6 – 8 p.m.

Be swept away by a sense of creative calm this March 24 to April 17, 2017 as the Chilliwack Community Arts Council presents Serenity, a tranquil Art Room Gallery exhibition featuring the works of contemporary watercolour artist, Serena J. Trinder.

Originally from the South West coastal county of Dorset, England, Serena J. Trinder now resides in Mission, British Columbia with her husband and son. Trinder began her working life as a Registered Paediatric Nurse but later went on to fuel her passion of history and art by achieving her Bachelor Honours Degree in History. This achievement allowed her to realise her dream of becoming an artist and fully delve into the artistic world of expression.

In addition to her success in selling private commissions and illustrated books in her native Britain, Trinder has exhibited in several private and community galleries throughout the Fraser Valley and Vancouver Island including the Mission Arts Centre, Kariton Gallery in Abbotsford, and Tullista Park Gallery in Sidney as well as part of the Sidney Fine Arts Show. Trinder was honoured in 2013 as the recipient of the “Muse Award for Visual Arts: Emerging Artist” by the Mission Cultural Resources Commission and currently serves on the Mission Arts Council. Her work graces the walls of galleries and residences throughout the United Kingdom, Europe, Canada, Australia, United States, and United Arab Emirates.

Trinder’s work largely focuses on landscapes and architecturally inspired themes which are uniquely depicted through her signature use of watercolour and ink. Drawing inspiration from a fond interest in mythology and history, Trinder channels a style evocative of the awe-inspiring European stained glass windows she visited throughout her childhood. The pieces featured in Serenity showcase her love of jewel tones, flowing lines, and intricate detail, woven together to form enchanting works of art.
