For the second year in a row, two Surrey artists are teaming up with a garden centre in support of Alzheimer awareness.

Paints ‘n Bloom is an art show at West Coast Garden Centre featuring works by Audrey Bakewell and Wendy Mould, coming up June 1 and 2.

Last year’s event raised nearly $1,000 in commissions on sales and donations for the Alzheimer Society of British Columbia, raising hopes that this year’s event will be even more successful.

The event blends art and flowers, making it a perfect spring outing, says Mould, who points out the centre is wheelchair accessible.

There are free art demos on June 1. The first is Drawing Birds and Animals in Graphite, at 11 a.m. with Wendy Mould, followed by Painting on Yupo Paper with Watercolour at 1:30 p.m., with Audrey Bakewell. For more information, please email artbywendy@shaw.ca or bakewell@connect.ab.ca.
