Cuba

Opening Reception

Artist in attendance | Free admission
Exhibit continues to November 24

I began to photograph in Cuba in 2016 with an interest in exteriors of buildings and the relationships between shapes, line and colour with a view to understanding the structure of formal abstraction as seen in a streetscape. Eventually I began to photograph people in relation to the formal shapes. My interest was not to portray the people as heroic, romanticized or idealized but rather to see them in their solitude, contemplation, interaction and lack of interaction with others or perhaps in their awareness of myself. They are who they are, where they are in integral relation to the building backdrop..

Wings of Imagination

Janet Strayer

Opening Reception Th Nov 28, 7-9pm
Artist in attendance | Free admission. Exhibit continues to Jan 5

This exhibit acclaims the boundless space entered on wings of imagination. It is about the substance and spirit of things that fly: birds, winged creations, feathers, feelings and ideas. Conveyed by a contemporary approach that mixes current with traditional techniques, we experience the atmospheric colour of Impressionism, the gesture and compositional force of Abstract Expressionism, the fun of Pop. Strayer’s artwork has been featured in several solo shows and many curated exhibits, has won awards, and lives in homes and public settings internationally.
