The Colborne Art Gallery is pleased to present Hem of the Sea, an exhibition of paintings by guest artist Janet Read.
Janet's evocative description of the work entices us as viewers:       
"My paintings engage with the land, the light and the sea.  They refer to the field lines: the small fields drawn by human lives against a rocky mountain.  The fields erase in wind and growth.  The light picks up hidden lines and the signs of human work on the land.  I pick up a brush and paint the edges, field against field, land against sea and sky.  I pick up a brush and aim for the light.
Hem of the Sea opens October 2, 2010 with an opening reception from 2-4 pm, and runs until November 14, 2010.  Please join us to welcome Janet Read to The Colborne Art Gallery and also enjoy a selection of other new works, by the members of the Gallery.
