Muskoka Arts and Crafts Member’s Show, “Betwixt and Between”, opens Saturday, February 14, 2015, at the Chapel Gallery, Bracebridge, ON. The reception is from 1 to 4 pm.
I have only one piece in this show as I’m trying a new, for me, process that has taken me weeks to accomplish. Many attempts were unsuccessful and time ran out for a second entry. Rather than printing on canvas, which I have been doing for about five years, this work is printed on fine art paper, dry mounted to artist board, finished with a protective UV coating and mounted in a glassless floating frame.
“Barrenlands Sunset” is the first of a series of landscapes made on my September trip to the Barrenlands of Northern Quebec last September. Inspired by the watercolour landscapes of Tony Onley I worked toward that feeling. While this is more an abstract of colour it falls into the Betwixt and Between theme as it not a traditonal landscape and a feeling between a painting and a photograph.
Living in a land of rock and trees with branches within a few feet of my windows I don’t often see the wide open spaces that I enjoyed in the Nunavik region of northern Quebec. From our Inuit hunting camp South West of Kuujjuaq there was a 360 degree view of the land.
Join us for the reception or stop by the Chapel Gallery in the next three weeks to view the work of all the artists participating in this show to view their versions of the theme.
