Artist Peter Stuhlmann:While having shown an interest in drawing and art from age seven, Peter did not begin painting complete pieces until 2007. Not coincidentally, that was also the year he moved from eastern Ontario to the Shuswap region of BC. It was here that he found his love of art rekindled in the beauty of the landscape.
Entirely self-taught, Peter explores the relationship between landscape, art and music, using almost lyrical movement and energy in line and form to drive his paintings.
Peter lives and paints in Chase with his wife Diane. They both enjoy roaming the Shuswap highlands, enjoying all that nature has to offer.
A selection of his work is offered at our Gallery.

Joey Nash is a self-taught Professional Artist who was born in Edmonton, Alberta in 1953. She has lived many places, but she now calls the beautiful Village of Chase , B.C. home and is delighted to put down roots, at last. She began painting in 1979 & was exhibiting in Galleries in Vancouver, B.C. within the year. She became an Active member of The Federation of Canadian Artists the first time she applied.
A life change caused a return to Kamloops in 2002. Her passion for Art still had to be honoured & shared with others, so, she focused on teaching. Joey loved to share her passion for art & quickly became a favourite Teacher for Kamloops Art Gallery, Kamloops Recreation & Culture & taught privately as well. She explored various mediums & techniques while helping her students to find their voices as Artists &, when time off allowed, she produced over 40 paintings in one year.
Due to the encouragement of her much loved students, 2006 marked a rededication to her career. She celebrated her 1st Solo Show, received wide acclaim for her painting "Maggie", which won Juror's Choice, People's Choice & the prestigious Patterson Award .
