    Natural Beauty

    featuring ManChoi Chow, Christine Gagnon & Sophie Drouin, Louise Marée, and Michelle Salter.

    The exhibition runs from Tuesday, May 16th to Sunday, July 16th, 2017.

    The opening reception is Thursday, May 25th from 6 to 8 pm.

    The beauty of nature is used as inspiration showcasing the different disciplines of our featured artists.  ManChoi Chow works in photography to bring to us gorgeous and ethereal moments in our surroundings.  The new Organics micro-mosaic jewellery collection by Christine Gagnon and Sophie Drouin combines the beauty of finely crafted sterling silver with colourful hand-formed glass elements.  Louise Marée's oil paintings are energetic and vibrant recollections of her experiences.  Michelle Salter continues to be fascinated by the lusciousness and depth of water interpreted through the medium of encaustics.  Each artist approaches our concept in a uniquely individual way.  Come be surprised! 



    Start celebrating Canada's 150th at UpTown Gallery.  Visit us and our artists will be on hand as you create your own leaf to be added to our display. For ages 8 and up.
