MIXING IT UP
Opening reception May 18th, 1-4pm
Mixed media artist, Jennie Carton, and painter, Barbara McLean come together to present MIXING IT UP, a richly textured and lively coloured feast for the eye. Carton’s subtle tones of silver, black and grey on grounds varying from aluminum to hand made paper are often punctuated by stone incorporated into drawings. Her work provides a natural foil for McLean’s more traditional use of acrylic on canvas. However, McLean also expands on the use of traditional painting materials by including tea, coffee and drawing media in her large and luscious paintings. In this rich and varied exhibition, it is obvious that there are wonderful contrasts and connections achieved by “mixing it up”.
