On Now




K-W, the new exhibit at Uptown Gallery, showcases recent works from Featured Artists Chesley House, Emily O'Neill-Larsen, and Tina Jensen.

There will not be an opening reception, in accordance with COVID-19 safety protocols.The show runs from Tuesday, July 12, to Sunday, August 15, 2021.

About the Artists:

Tina Jensen is a representational artist who was born and raised in Kitchener- Waterloo.  Working in oils, she interprets the beauty of light and colour from everyday scenes, and retells the visual story in a contemporary, almost abstracted, style. 

Emily O'Neill-Larsen is an abstract artist currently living in Kitchener-Waterloo. She finds plenty of creativity in the beautifully historic and unique surroundings in the region. Her work is inspired by her feelings and the visuals around her, molded into acrylic and oil paints. Emily’s work provokes curiosity and inspiration in art enthusiasts through vibrant colours and textures. 

Chesley House is the collaboration of Susan Arness and and Ron Hewson. Together they do both rural and urban landscapes. Susan’s work is shaped by her country background. Influenced by the mountains, lake, and farmland of Maine, her photographs of rural Ontario have a sense of familiarity. Ron’s life has been more urban. Born in Brantford, he moved to Kitchener-Waterloo in 1979. His photography centres on the ever-changing city landscape.

The show runs from Tuesday, July 12, to Sunday, August 15, 2021.
