Opening Reception | June 2017

TUESDAY, JUNE 27, 2017
6:30 – 8:30 PM

Homer Watson House & Gallery is pleased to host the Annual Homer Watson Exhibition: Sense of Place, featuring the work of Homer Watson, Marlene Kawalez, Mike Bergauer, and the Artist Critique Group.

Our Annual Watson Exhibition celebrates the 150th anniversary of Canada. The Canadian landscape is the predominant theme and subject matter for Homer Watson. Accompanying Watson are four exhibitions, Sub-merg is an exhibition of sculpture by Marlene Kawalez inter-played with the paintings of Homer Watson.  Décarvage is an exhibition by artist Mike Bergauer that highlights the emotional joy and satisfaction experienced when exploring nature as a medium as much as a subject matter. Embracing Place is an exhibition by the Artist Critique Group exploring complexities of place.

These artists find similar inspirations to Watson. Questioning, evoking emotion and revealing truths, they speak honestly to our environmental issues, to the personal journey and spiritual growth and to our future development as a nation within the context of our world and universe.

Coinciding with the opening reception of the Annual Homer Watson Exhibition, we are pleased to host our Annual General Meeting.  An informal artist lecture will take place along with a recap of Gallery operations from 2016.  Gallery staff will be on hand for house tours and light refreshments will be served.
