What an incredible opening weekend for Elaine Brewer-White and Mary Ann Laing! We would like to thank everyone who attended the exhibition opening; it was our first with artists in attendance since reopening to the public earlier this summer. We would also like to mention how much our staff appreciated visitors adorning masks before entering the gallery.
One of the major highlights was showing Dr. Henry, the ceramic sculpture Elaine Brewer-White made in her likeness! What a moment!
Mary Ann Laing painted a fantastic collection of oil paintings reminiscent of her travels on Vancouver Island. The combination of Mary Ann's paintings and Elaine's sculptures has genuinely transformed our gallery! If you missed the opening, please visit us soon! This collection will be up until October 14, 2020.
Coffey's latest oeuvre is a vibrant continuation of his exploration of Canada's diverse landscapes. Works such as Breeze, Harvest Dance,andCat Tails (Tales), delve into the artist's intimate relationship with the plains and skies, narrating the untold stories of the land. His immersive style captures more than the essence of each scene; it brings to life the unique story embedded in every brushstroke.
Cairns' new series is a masterful continuation of her exploration into the heart of Canada's coastal landscapes. Pieces such as "Shoreline XI," "Refuge Cove I," "Intertidal II," and "Mansons Lagoon XV" represent a deep dive into the artist's intimate relationship with the sea and shore. Cairns captures the essence of each location's unique story through her distinct, immersive style.
