    Rhythms of Earth

    Featuring Brad Sherk and Carolyn Sharp.

    This show runs from Wednesday, July 16th to Tuesday, September 16th, 2014.

    In this exhibit you will be overwhelmed by the presence of the natural world as expressed in the impressionistic paintings from Carolyn Sharp and the realistic drawings and prints of Brad Sherk. Our artists have created art that celebrates the natural world as an expression of our role on the planet we share with many other beings. Whether its a beautiful reflection in the waters of the Grand River in Elora or in the reflection of a snowy owl’s eyes, we hope this exhibit helps you see the natural world in a new rhythm.
