Land of the living Skies 9 acrylic on canvas 30x40

Guelph artist Margaret Peter has a show of landscapes at the Miijidaa Cafe and Bistro until July 6. Margaret combines texture and colour to convey her impression of surfaces in her prints and paintings. Her landscapes reflect her love of big skies. She says, "Skies are a fascination for me as is the Ontario countryside. By applying fluid acrylic paint with bold brushstrokes, layering colour upon colour, I am able to achieve depth and drama as the painting unfolds into a stunning landscape." She is the June LivingSpaces & Lifestyles Magazine featured artist. View more of her work on her website.

Opening June 6, 6:30-8:30pm. Exhibition runs until June 28

Inspired by a scientific understanding of nature's complexity and informed by a Christ centred understanding of reality, this exhibit is a visual exploration of plants/seeds and their 'hidden' structures as seen through a microscope. Through a multidisciplinary approach and perspective, the work invites the viewer to reflect on how these often complex structures may allude to the handiwork of a Grand designer and can perhaps offer insights into questions often embedded deep within the human spirit regarding life, our purpose, existence and identity.

Bubblegum Landscapes Exhibition by Frances Hahn Summer exhibition recalls whimsical memories from childhood: supported by women in the community to help promote female artists HARRIS GALLERY June 27 –September 15, 2019 Frances Hahn doesn’t attempt to paint a clear representation of a given landscape but takes from both reality and her best wondering about the place. She assembles these much like a puzzle into a simplified interpretation of beauty. While her visual work is either figurative or abstract landscape, the common subject is imagined memory. Future, past and fantasy have equal weight. In this vision, figures are simplified or distorted in order to emphasize gesture as if in a memory. Frances Hahn is perhaps best known for her figurative collection of work featuring people blowing large bubbles out of bubblegum. Recently Frances has been exploring abstract landscape and this exhibition primarily celebrates her new work. “All my dreams fall and form a bridge of memory where I can get back.” – Frances Hahn. Special thank you to the women in our community who attended the BLACK DRESS EVENT this past winter for their generous donation to help present this exhibition and support local female artists.
