My recent collection of work, “A Conversation With Trees” explores the ancient law of life (birth, decay, death, regeneration), the spirit of the forest, and our connection to trees. It’s the result of years of close observation of trees and the resulting discovery that we all have a place that is special to each of us – a secret place, where one feels their authentic self, protected and inspired – mine is a forest.
On a beautiful Saturday July 8th, the treasured heritage building of Cramahe Township that 20 years ago became the Colborne Art Gallery was host to the opening of the Annual Juried Show. The gallery was packed with over 130 people present to celebrate the 27 artists whose work was chosen from among 109 pieces submitted for jurying by Eileen Menzel.
The work of 38 artists whose past participation has built the only professional co-operative gallery in the area will be on display from May 27 to July 2, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Colborne Art Gallery.
After middle age, women in our society can tend to feel invisible unless they do something dramatic or outlandish to draw attention to themselves. This show of paintings and drawings celebrates the natural vitality and beauty of older women as seen and captured by artists who are their contemporaries. It invites viewers to recalibrate how they measure attractiveness – and to look more closely at women of a certain age.
