Margaret Wailes

Foreclosed, Oil on Canvas

As a child, vacationing with my parents, I often sat with my father in the evening, sketching. When my father retired, he pursued his interest in art and became an accomplished artist. It was not until I, myself, retired from University teaching that I  followed my passion and resumed sketching and painting.

 

For the past eighteen years, I have spent summers in Prince Edward Island. In 2000, while browsing through the Graphic, I came across an invitation to join Sandi Komst in watercolor painting classes at the MacPhail Homestead – “no experience or materials necessary”. That first class awakened a long dormant passion for painting. I have continued to study and paint with Sandi, Brian Atyeo, Ron Savage, Linda Kemp, Kai-Lis McGinnis, Mel Stabin and Stephen Quiller in summer workshops, and painted en plein air with several dedicated and accomplished Island artists.

 

In Concord, Massachusetts, in the winters, I have continued taking classes in drawing, watercolor and acrylic painting with Margaret Savage, Nancy Howell, Lynette Haggard, Phyllis Hughes, Maris Plaitas and Paul George.

 

On Prince Edward Island, I have exhibited and sold paintings at the Georgetown Inn, The Dunes, Howes Gallery, The Dancing Starfish, and the Coleville Gallery, as well as Artisans on Main. I continue to exhibit paintings in Concord and I have been the director of Trinity Art Gallery since 2006.
