PRESS RELEASE: 171206 – Patricia Peters & Kathleen Menges – “Kindred Spirits” – A Fusion in Wax Patricia Peters and Kathleen Menges are teaming up again to share their talents and art featuring works uniquely created with the ancient medium of wax. Both artists have worked in the luscious and temperamental encaustic medium. Hot wax requires heat as a solvent to move paint around and fuse the layers together. Encaustic painting can have a spectacular transparent polish or depth to the product, through to a textural relief. This exhibition showcases the evolution of their work in wax processes from encaustic to that of oil and cold wax. This latter medium looks like paste and does not require heat but rather uses mineral spirits as a solvent. This typically gives a matte finish which can vary from a silky smooth texture to an organic, hand-rubbed polish. With cold wax medium brushes are replaced by palette knives, silicon blades, brayers, squeegees, and rollers, to name only a few tools of the craftwork. In this exhibition, pigments and/or oil paint, plus cold wax medium have been thoughtfully layered to create dynamic and sometimes mysterious images. Kathleen and Patricia speak a similar language because of the common use of tools, surfaces, and product but the imagery and handling of their paint is dramatically different and artistically unique. After viewing their work one can easily determine who is Ying and who is Yang. One artist exhibits energy and colorful variety while the other is more meditative, serene, and peaceful. Their combined work is diverse and brings to light the subtleties, grace, and complexities of the highly unusual medium of oil and cold wax. Both artists will be available January 13, 2018, from 12:00 noon to 3:00 pm to respond to comments and questions during the opening reception at the O’Conner Gallery. On January 20, from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm, they will be hosting a hands-on workshop.

Feelings of Colour, Art Exhibit, by Donna (Donya) Hitchens. Free admisionFeb 22, 2018 - Mar 31, 2018

E-Mail: marycm83@shaw.ca
Description:

Donna Hitchens’ Press Release - Donna’s or Donya’s art is known as “Visionary Art” which is a title related to self-taught artists. Her creations are a result of her adaptations within the style known as Modern Art today. Donna’s paintings are an expression of her feelings, using acrylic on canvas. She begins by thinking about a subject she may have seen, or begun to imagine. They begin with bright colours, and the brush strokes express her desire to highlight her vision of what lies within the abstract thought. Whether that vision is of an animal, a flower, or a person, the work is meant to draw attention to the parts of the painting that will stir a feeling expressed by the colours and what else lies within. Donna originally worked with pottery and clay sculptures, and then changed over to acrylic painting in 1995. Since then her work has been accepted and shown in many venues since 2004, including being in the Lobby Art in the Cultural Centre, in January 2016.

Notes:

Open Wednesday through Saturday from 12 noon until 5 pm. Reception Feb.4th 1 pm to 4 pm.
