The Art of Susan Taylor and Frank Ducote


(posted on 30 May 2024)

Dear friends of the Blood Star,

Ocean Week Canada is coming up June 1 to 9 with the big day being Saturday, June 8. There'll be many activities in Steveston to bring awareness to all things ocean.

The ocean and all of its inhabitants are some of Susan's favourite subjects. Plankton is crucial to all of us. Its organisms provide us with half of the oxygen we breathe, it forms the base of the ocean food chain, it's a sink for the carbon dioxide we produce and yet, for the most part it's invisible to the naked eye. Susan's upcoming exhibit The Importance of Plankton celebrates the beauty of these essential organisms. 

If we take care of the oceans, they'll take care of us.


Señor Burrito by Frank Ducote, acrylic on wood cradle, 14 x 11

Frank's bold and loving portraits of farm animals are proving popular. Señor Burrito is the latest one to leave the Blood Star. He has promised to have additional work in this series available for this year's ART OFF THE FENCE Show and Sale on South Pender Island. Mark your calendars and book your ferry travel.


Our best to you,

Susan and Frank
