The very talented Andrea Mueller is this year’s Whistler Blackcomb featured artist. With artwork exhibited in collections across the globe, Andrea brings to Whistler a vibrant and new approach to both teaching and painting. Also nominated for the Champion of Arts and Culture award presented by Whistler Real Estate, here’s how you can enjoy her art and get involved.
Andrea has called this beautiful mountain town, home for the last 15 years. Originally from Ontario, she is inspired by the rive passion that comes from Whistler, the people that come here and the energy of the town. You can see this reflected in her sensational art, which is characterized by loose brush strokes, bold colours and playful imagery.
If you love Andrea’s art or just want to try something different, you can attend a paint night. Andrea hosts art workshops where she teaches art techniques and allows students to produce their own masterpieces. You can enjoy this great social activity, demonstrating the array of activities on offer in Whistler. Attend a paint night, held at Café 81 in the Summit Hotel which includes paint your pet night on May 9.
Take art home
You may be wondering how you can take home a piece of this stunning artwork. If you haven’t got a Whistler home yet, you can purchase art here.
One thing that I really love about Andrea is how involved she is with the Whistler community. Since 2009 she has worked closely with a lot of different artists and mediums. She said the community is very inclusive and supportive.
