    Drip, Drizzle and Splash

    featuring Mary Guillaume, Cathy Pascoe, and Jean Weller.
    Exhibition runs from Wednesday, January 21st to Sunday, March 22nd of 2015. 

    UpTown Gallery presents Drip, Drizzle and Splash.  In this new show Cathy Pascoe, Jean Weller and Mary Guillaume play with coloured pencils, camera and film, and paint as they interpret the interesting possibilities of Drip, Drizzle and Splash!

    Whether exploring reflections on water and light patterns on shiny surfaces using coloured pencils, enjoying that special moment when the camera catches the natural beauty of light, water and ice,  or interpreting the theme through the literal use of media by dripping, drizzling and splashing paint, the artists have each approached the theme in their own manner.
