Video walk through of my painting exhibition RUPTURED LANDSCAPES on March 2, 2024, shown at the Rotunda Gallery, Kitchener City Hall, Kitchener, Ontario.  Exhibition continues until April 28th, 2024.

Photos from the opening of  RUPTURED LANDSCAPES at the ROTUNDA GALLERY on Saturday March 2nd. A cracking traditional  Irish session (including 22 musicians), and my artist talk!

Thank you SO much to all of you lovely people for coming out to the opening of Ruptured Landscapes yesterday heart is full! A big thanks to my brilliant musician friends (22 of you when I last counted) who filled the space with the magical sounds of jigs, reels and polkas on fiddles, pipes, banjos, concertinas and whistles! I'll never forget it.

RUPTURED LANDSCAPES at the Rotunda Gallery, Kitchener City Hall, Kitchener Ontario, March 1 to April 30, 2024

There will be an opening reception on Saturday March 2nd, 2 to 5 p.m.  All are welcome!

A solo exhibition of oil paintings that explore the relationship between people and our fragile environment, a world threatened by systematic disintegration and devastation. Environmental concerns are a focus in my current practice. My paintings explore and speak to climate change, particularly on oceans and shorelines: the sea level is rising, waters are warming, storms are intensifying, lives and communities are at risk.  Conjured partly from memory, partly from photographs, the figures in the paintings uneasily inhabit places that are explored in the past and present, with a focus on their relationship to bodies of water. 

This body of work was funded by an Arts Nova Scotia Creation Grant, for which I am most grateful. 



I'm looking forward to showing "Ruptured Landscapes" at the Rotunda Gallery at Kitchener City Hall during the months from March 1st to April 30th. 
You're warmly invited to the opening reception on Saturday, March 2nd from 2 to 5 p.m., –  it'd be great to see you. Hope you can pop by for art, acoustic traditional Irish music and refreshments! 
Art and cracking Irish tunes on fiddles, mandolins, bodhrans, tin whistles and uilleann pipes….what better way to spend a Saturday afternoon?
