The Colborne Art Gallery is pleased to present
an exhibition by Guest Artist Elizabeth Hutchinson
March 8- April 13, 2014.
This is an exhibition of Elizabeth's newest work, small, intimate still life oil paintings and
watercolors that come out of a daily practice of drawing, usually on the spot, wherever
Elizabeth goes. Many are painted directly from objects on the kitchen table, often
arranged by chance. They are an intimate view of an artist's home and life.
“The things I paint and draw are a kind of diary, showing where I've traveled
and what I am seeing and how I am thinking. The work in this exhibition
is the physical evidence of the internal work I am doing: winnowing
away extraneous effort while zeroing in on what is essential.”
During the opening reception, Elizabeth will be sharing her process
with the guests by doing a still life painting demonstration.
In the Heritage room, Gallery member Annie McDonald is showing
a collection of ceramic works entitled Thaw
“Under piles of snow on snow it's exciting to imagine the activity and stored
energy underground. These sculptures are inspired by the mystery of spring.”
Please join us for the opening reception with the artists present on
Saturday March 8th from 2-4pm.
Admission is always free and all are welcome to attend.
