CECIL DAY: Recent Etchings

A distinguished member of Atlantic Canada's printmaking community, Day works out of her studio in Port Maitland, on the southwest coast of N.S.

RON MILTON: Monoprints, Etchings & Sculpture

Artist, teacher and lecturer Ronald Milton exhibits in galleries across Ontario and the Maritimes and teaches etching at a secondary art school in London, Ontario.

Emerging from a full life as artist, father and confirmed rebel, this mature and accomplished painter has come forth with an impressive accumulation of vigorous, expressive paintings of Cape Breton, especially the Sydney he loves and calls home. Dawes makes person and place, mundane or otherwise, come alive with an energentic percussion of bright, choice color and thick, resonant strokes of the brush.

This year, for a lucky 13 change, we have expanded upon the floral theme to include fruit and all that coming to fruition implies.

"The Lay of the Light"

V.L. MACLEAN AND A.W. SYPEREK: Etchings and Drawings

Companion Show to "The Lay of the Light" - Traveling Show of Maclean and Syperek Paintings, drawing attention to the foundation and further diversity of each artist's expression. The show is about two artists being present to the profundity of the world as it is and applying their imaginative expression to that daily interdependence of inner and outer experience. It calls for a new look at realism, not for historical or aesthetic reasons necessarily, but because there is some inherent truth in nature and in the eloquent arrangement of ordinary things that asserts an important connective and enlivening influence in the world.
