A Conversation With Trees

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.

The Colborne Art Gallery’s 5th Annual Juried Exhibition

Women of a Certain Age

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.

In The Light of Change by Audrey Smith

May 28 to July 3, 2016. Opening reception May 28, 2 to 4 PM. Occasionally a painting can stop me! This is what happened when I entered The Colborne Art Gallery’s Juried Show in 2014 to see Audrey Smith’s 60-inch-tall piece titled, “Vulnerable.” My response was visceral—because it was a life-sized painting of a young woman, sitting on a chair and baring her soul. The composition of the piece was dynamic. No wonder it won the Juror’s Prize that year!

Northumberland Youth Art Exhibition 2016

Robot Home Movies by Rod Bergeron

Oct 3 to Nov 8, 2015 – Robot Home Movies is one part sci-fi, one part comedy and one part fun. I wanted to tell the story of three robots that come to life at the hands of a mad scientist. The robots go about the world in the most human-like ways. I am amused by the way they are accepted as human and I am amazed by the way human viewers feel compassion towards them, and the kindness and respect they inspire.

Vital Energy by Charles Funnell

Aug 22 to Sep 27, 2015 – Vital Energy, the very force that gives us life, is a concept that humanity has grappled with since the beginnings of conscious thought. Is it something to be harnessed, subdued, and channelled for personal benefit, or is it best left to its own natural course? However it may be perceived, one thing remains certain: Vital Energy is central to creativity, in any form. For Charles Funnell, this energy is not only the focus of his thought, but the force behind his masterful achievements in metal and mixed media.

Now, New Work by Pat Stanley

March 7 – April 12, 2015 – “Now” is a visual dialogue about the tensions generated by the interaction of man-made and natural landscapes. Pat’s work explores primal issues about the environment, the Universe and our place in it. It presents us with phenomena in distant parts (and times) of the Universe interacting with built structures from our daily lives. Abandoned and destroyed homes and residences, factories, expressways and drive-in theatres exist in a shared virtual space with nebulae and galaxies. It is a meditation on space, time and memory.

Creative Family Day

The Colborne Art Gallery was the scene of a creative Family Day event on Monday, February 16th. Jillian Roos-Markowitz hosted an art workshop demonstrating the art of Lino Block Printing. Participants attending made their own Lino cut printing blocks to create abstract designs. The blocks are carved with tools then inked with a roller, flipped ink side down and transferred to paper. Water-based printing inks in glorious colours were used to print the designs. The technique works on printing paper as well as fabric. Artist from the community came out to explore their creativity.
