Uptown Gallery Hop
May 24, 5-8 pm
Join us uptown May 24th for a delightful evening with friends, food and fine art. We are proudly featuring works from local artist Emily Lemesurier and long time mixed media artist George Walford.
"My recent abstract mixed-media non-representational paintings are the result of the combination of materials,
textures, washes and glazes of acrylics and oils.
In the absence of subject, I attempt to imbue each piece with its own energy making the painting itself the subject."
"Walford's abstracts are all about texture; in fact, they are so tactile you have to resist the temptation to dig in the dirtů.Walford's surfaces look blasted by time and the elements." (Elissa Barnard- Chronicle Herald Arts reporter)
Emily LeMesurier, from Saint John, NB, has recently graduated from Mt. Allison University with her BFA.
A full time artist, her work captures the everyday happenings in our lives, thoroughly engaging the viewer.
"I am inspired by my everyday life. I am interested in how people, places, and pets make
up the landscape that is our lives. Our social reality--our friendship to each other and to
our surroundings and how that becomes part of our daily life--truly inspires me."
The exhibition will be on display from May 24th - June 8th.
