featuring Tiina Price ~ Resonance 

Curated by Faith Hieblinger | Juror Andrew Soorah Juror

March 17 – April 21 2019

Tiina-Price-”BREATHE”.-watercolour-201x300 Artists explore the use of contrast within a work of art whether it be visually through colour, line or texture, figuratively through symbolic choice of subject matter or spiritually through thought provoking composition.  The theme is examined though a variety of artistic backgrounds, diverse media and rich cultural influences.

The work of KWSA member, Tiina Price, 2018 winner of the Curator’s Choice award, is a featured as solo artist in her exhibit .  Price chooses to paint with watercolours as it allows the nuances of nature to unfold. “I am continually struck by the play of light on water, the shadows in foliage, the changeability of skies, and the vibrancy or subtlety of colour.”  Price’s paintings celebrate not only the energy and vitality of nature, but its serenity and harmony.

HW-Paintings-313-300x190Nature and Humans|| Homer Watson|| Watson Museum

curated by Faith Hieblinger

January – March 

Lush forests, heavy clouds and rushing streams are often seen in partnership with markers of human industrialization: small and gestural depictions of working men and women as well as the depiction of man made structures, such as local mills and barns. Through his work, Homer captures the unforgiving moods and beauty of nature as well as man’s complex relationship with it.
