Philip Buytendorp to show in Sidney

Painter opens show featuring Canadian landscapes at Sidney’s Peninsula Gallery this weekend

Painter Phillip Buytendorp is showing his work at Sidney’s Peninsula Gallery this month. The show opens this weekend and will run until November 2.

Artist Philip Buytendorp will show a large collection of new paintings at Peninsula Gallery this weekend.

Buytendorp was born in Brandon, Manitoba into a family of respected artists.

A one-time resident of Piers Island, Buytendorp went on extended painting trips with his father throughout his boyhood, travelling throughout the prairies and the Canadian Shield.

He then studied art at the Brandon Allied Arts Center in 1978/79.

From 1981 to ‘86, Buytendorp worked in construction in Calgary, but he spent his weekends sketching and painting the landscapes of the Rocky Mountain foothills.

Soon after, he would move to the Fraser Valley and start a five year apprenticeship under the direction of his father.

An accomplished outdoorsman and mariner, Buytendorp’s work is significantly influenced by the Group of Seven.

Bold brush strokes and a rich colour palette make his paintings distinctive, said Peninsula Gallery owner, Jonathan Jia.

Buytendorp, who has been showing his work at Peninsula Gallery since 1997, has pieces that feature west coast landscapes, scenes of the B.C. interior as well as some prairie scenes.

He first started showing his work at Peninsula Gallery in 1997.

The artist’s reception takes place tomorrow, Saturday, Oct. 18 from 1 to 4 p.m. and the show will continue through until Nov. 2.
