CLAIRE DESJARDINS: THE SECRETS WE KEEP

In her latest solo exhibition, The Secrets We Keep, Quebec abstract expressionist artist, Claire Desjardins, bares all in gestural paintings featuring animated brush strokes and her signature bold and lively palettes. Each of the paintings is personal and unpredictable, guided by feelings identified in a specific moment, sentiment, or reaction. Viewers can identify with the artist’s expressions that serve as a replacement for lost words. You can read more about Claire Desjardins on the events page or read her latest feature in Ottawa Citizen Style Magazine.

Opening reception, June 29th from 5-7 PM.
Artist's talk, July 6th, 5:30-7:30 PM, at WALL SPACE Gallery in Westboro. RSVP to:  responses@wallspacegallery.ca

Here is a sneak peek of some of the upcoming paintings:

 

MARNEY McDIARMID: THE GARDEN GROWING ON WITHIN US

Kingston ceramicist Marney McDiarmid explores a new type of captivating vessel in The Garden Growing On Within Us. McDiarmid creates striking pieces out of porcelain with lush, graphic imagery and finely crafted details. A narrative emerges, influenced by concepts of growth, decay, and regeneration. In the artist's words,   “A garden can overtake you, nourish you, or provide a place to hide.”
