Opening reception August 19, 7-9
PORT CREDIT, ON – During the month of August, Imagemaker Gallery is presenting the work of four very different artists, Margaret Byerley, June Hoffland, Barbara Clarke and Terry Gardner.
Their techniques range from acrylic abstract interpretations with wild washes of colour and texture, to softer watercolour images to landscape paintings.
“I find the medium of watercolours to be challenging, but perfect for expressions of subtle colour and intimate detail,” quotes Hoffland.
Gardner says, “My abstracts often result in moody landscape works, which lead the viewer to discern shapes and forms within them. There is something of the real world recognizable in my paintings.”
This eclectic group of artists believes that painting directs one to observe their surroundings carefully and to see the environment with a completely new set of eyes. Byerley says, “Sometimes I’m completely awed by how the pursuit of art has changed my perception of the world.”
