Through lively discussion and collaboration, the members of The Colborne Art Gallery have chosen Contained as the theme for their annual group show. With several months to consider what the theme means to them and how it may best be explored in their own medium, the results are sure to be rich and varied. to be held - in love, in imprisonment, for protection… to be restrained or limited - in scope, in colour, in subject matter… to be controlled from spreading or influencing - by shapes, by barriers, by frames… to be included as a part or component of something larger - through repetition, segmentation, collage…
All of these interpretations are fodder for the creative minds of our diverse group of artists, and although the theme is Contained, the possibilities of our efforts are limitless.
Come and explore the results.
You’ll find a warm welcome and excellent work, professionally displayed in the Historic Colborne Registry building.
Contained opens January 28, 2012 with an opening reception from 2-4 pm, and runs until March 4, 2012.
Please join us to meet the artists of The Colborne Art Gallery and to enjoy a selection of their new works.
