Atlantic Artist Celebration

Maritime Shino and My Favourite Things continue at Gallery 78

mediaMaritime Shino: New work by Lee Horus Clark

For 15 years, Lee Horus Clark has experimented with indigenous materials for his shino glazes.  Maritime Shino is his first exhibition where the shino glaze is derived solely from minerals and elements collected right here in the Maritimes.  These works were fired in an Anagama kiln that Lee designed and built himself at his home in rural New Brunswick.

My Favourite Things features five realist women artists who live or have roots in Atlantic Canada.  Jessie Babin draws exquisitely in graphite, charcoal and coloured pencil; Ann Balch’s paintings of faces in watercolour are moving and introspective at the same time; Joanne Hunt’s floral and still life compositions in oil exemplify this artist’s eye for detail; Susan Paterson’s paintings in oil are classical masterpieces; and Cathy Ross’s watercolour paintings uplift and engage the viewer.

These two exhibitions continue until November 16, 2014 at Gallery 78

Gallery 78 is open weekdays: Tuesday to Friday 10am-5pm and on the weekends: Saturdays 10am-3pm, Sundays 1-4pm.  www.gallery78.com
