Exhibitions at 10C Shared Space
Paper works by Taras Lachowsky is on view until November 25. Lachowsky is a Ukrainian-Canadian artist who describes their work as “ethno-modernism, taking motifs and techniques from a historical narrative and adapting them to personal viewpoints.”
Megan Sanderson will showcase paintings and mixed media work from November 26-December 11. Megan’s work takes inspiration from independent research done on algue found on the southern New Brunswick coastline.
Maureen Ault’s exhibition runs December 12-31. Inspired by the simplicity and folk art of Maud E. Lewis and Grandma Moses, Ault’s work uses pressed botanical materials to reflect themes of movement, detail and texture while telling stories with a touch of humour.
