Exhibition runs from Tuesday, July 18th to Sunday, September 17th.

Adrienne and Jane will be hosting an opening reception on Thursday July 20th from 6 to 8 pm.

In today's world, it would seem that we need colour more than ever. Colour is like spice...it can induce a euphoric state where for a moment the viewer can be transported into a world of pure enjoyment, freedom and awe. These three award-winning artists invite guests to experience the Colour Spectrum through photography, coloured pencil and acrylic paintings. Adrienne Zoe, a celebrated photographer, uses her camera, filters and computer to escalate the beauty of glass, flowers and skies. Coloured pencil crayon is what moves Cathy Pascoe to produce detailed and unforgettable works of art. Jane Bayne finds acrylic paint essential to capture local landscapes with unparalleled brilliance. The colour spectrum is a powerful tool in the hands of an artist...it gives a painting its full force and encourages artistic licence to soar.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS

Jane Bayne is happiest in a natural landscape environment and finds many local areas captivating. The spectrum of colour is present in most vistas but is not obvious to most people. She is not a stranger to colour and enjoys bringing to life a simple field of native plants and reflections in waterways. The theme Colour Spectrum allows her to take advantage of intensity of hue to create scenes with luminosity. Hidden Valley, an area not well known to most in Kitchener, provides her with endless inspiration for paintings in all seasons. Jane has captured scenes from this area over a dozen times. She is helping to organize a Juried Show at Homer Watson Gallery In September 2017 based on this beautiful jewel in our city which needs to be protected to remain as unspoiled as nature intended.

Cathy Pascoe often explores the myriad patterns of light and shadow in her drawings. She explores new perspectives through her varied artistic subject matter, and this time she approaches through a new challenge in the light and colour of a sunset.

Whether indoors or outdoors, Adrienne Zoe is on the constant lookout for subjects to photograph and expressing her point of view.
Fascinated by colour and glass reflections, she shot “Glassware”, an indoor setup using artificial light and solely using glass as props. Shooting through her own filter, “Flower Fiesta” expresses the energy and vibrant colours behind the floral arrangement Adrienne came across at a flower show. When she saw a sunset, Adrienne composed “Painted Sky”, juxtaposing the harsh jagged outline of a dead pine tree against the colourful sky. These images are all about colour, because their impact would be lost without it.
The strength behind Adrienne's photography is her ability to see and transform photo opportunities into creative works of fine art.
