Opening Reception | February 2018

2:00 – 4:00 PM

Please join us as we celebrate the opening of the Winter Exhibition, featuring three solo shows. Tree-Centricity by Amy Ferrari, Mind-Scape by Ed Schleimer, and Sitting Still by Ruth Lane.

This winter Homer Watson House & Gallery proudly presents three solo artists that are not afraid of expressing personality, spirituality, and a sense of being in their work.

Amy Ferrari showcases the personalities of trees.  Ferrari believes that focusing on trees can help to center us and bring us back into alignment with the flow, harmony and wisdom of life.  She imagines the trees are trying to teach us how to be strong and majestic, even with all of our flaws.

Ed Schleimer takes us on a journey of discovery, reconciliation, change, intellect and moral purpose.  Through his work in wood cut etchings, watercolour and oil pastels, Schleimer often uses his own image to interpret the historic spirit of our city in terms of values and aspirations, seeking to satisfy the universal needs of “everyman”.

Ruth Lane explores the idea of our identity as fluid rather than fixed.  The subject matter she paints is varied, but the portraiture and figures are her true passion.  Lane goes beneath the surface and expresses the personality and emotion that makes us who we are. Lane believes that this is where the dialogue begins.  Her images provide the space for individual reflections and commentary.

Join us for the free opening reception on Sunday, February 4 from 2-4 pm for the opportunity to meet the artists as they offer their opening remarks.

Exhibition runs from February 4th till March 9th 2018.
