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.
The Colborne Art Gallery is pleased to host a one-man show displaying the works of guest artist Ronald Peter. Ronald has been in many juried shows over the past few years and his talent has garnered him numerous awards and accolades from the arts community. This particular show is entitled “Power of the Pen” – an exhibition of pen and ink drawings and paintings that speak to the pen and its ability to create powerful images in a simple yet striking way. He portrays culturally intriguing landscapes and found still life images.
The Colborne Art Gallery presents a group exhibition by member artists, November 12 to December 11, 2016. Opening Reception: Sat, Nov 12 from 2 to 4 PM.
