This month we celebrate World Water Day with Night Swimmers; Red Sea (2021) by Nova Scotia artist Eva McCauley. This work was part of the World Water Day exhibition Reflections held at the UNB Art Centre in 2023.

McCauley is known for her atmospheric landscape paintings that explore the idea of transience and memory. In her paintings, she disrupts linear time by exploring the process of remembering. Rather than recreating a specific moment, she creates an image based on her memory of it. These shifting memories inform her paintings which present ephemeral, ghostly images that appear to emerge from dreamlike landscapes.

As a landscape painter, Eva McCauley is becoming increasingly concerned with climate change, particularly its effect on ocean environments. She blends these concerns with her exploration of recollection and mutability.

Eva McCauley earned her Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Waterloo in 1996, her Bachelor's degree from Guelph University in 1994 and her A.O.C.A.D. diploma from the Ontario College of Art and Design in 1983. Originally from Ontario, she has exhibited extensively in that province and more recently in Nova Scotia. She has received awards for her painting and printmaking from the Canada Council, Arts Nova Scotia, the Ontario Arts Council, as well as awards from the University of Waterloo, Guelph and O.C.A.D. She has participated in the Cill Rialaig Artist Project, in Ballinskelligs, County Kerry, Ireland, numerous times in the past decade.

The UNB Art Centre (506-453-4623) is located at Memorial Hall, 9 Bailey Drive, University of New Brunswick, Fredericton. The galleries are open 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays and during special events. Admission is free to members of the public.

Thank you SO much to all of you lovely people for coming out to the opening of Ruptured Landscapes yesterday afternoon....my 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 28, 2024

There will be an opening reception in 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 of March and April. If you're in Ontario, 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 live music, and refreshments! 
Art and cracking Irish tunes on fiddles, mandolins, bodhrans, tin whistles and uilleann pipes….what better way to spend a wintry Saturday afternoon?

The artist wishes to thank Arts NS for their financial support.

Happy New Year!
