The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Belle River Artist Wendy Jones stands with the fig­ures she was com­mis­sioned to pro­duce for the Wood Is­lands Light­house. Neilie, Don­ald, Wil­lie and Archie MacMil­lan were the sons of Wood Is­lands’ first light­house keeper. The pieces will stand in var­i­ous rooms through­out the Light­house Mu­seum. Jones ex­plores a wide va­ri­ety of sub­jects in her art, in­clud­ing por­trait paint­ing, and Eclec­tic, which opens to­day, fea­tures th­ese di­verse sub­ject mat­ters, tech­niques and medi­ums. The open­ing re­cep­tion for the ex­hibit is to­day, 2-8 p.m., at WMJ Cool Cat Stu­dio, 1828 Trans-Canada High­way. Peo­ple can also drop into the stu­dio be­tween 10 a.m. 7 p.m. un­til Sept. 30. It’s a good idea to call ahead to 902-962-4131 as short, spo­radic stu­dio clo­sures may oc­cur.
