New exhibits on display at Winchester Galleries

River-trip painting results part of exhibit

Oak Bay resident and painter Avis Rasmussen travelled the Rhine River in July 2011 and painted to tell about it.

Her watercolours were completed in the plein air of Zurich, Strasbourg, Speyer, Rudesheim and other towns. An exhibit of her resulting work opens Saturday (Oct. 1) at Winchester Galleries, 2260 Oak Bay Ave. Rasmussen will be in attendance from 1 to 5 p.m.

Also opening that day is an exhibit of illustrator Doug Fraser’s oil industrial paintings. Both shows run until Oct. 22.
