There were Signs in the Sky by Guelph artist, Nancy Farrell takes you on a journey through mysterious landscapes. Symbols and signs reveal themselves as Omens; precursors of change. This series of mixed media acrylic painting provide a personal and intimate experience with landscape.  Through free-wheeling marks, shapes, colours and forms layered, veiled and obliterated the viewer is carried on a process of self-discovery.

Hope Transcends || Laura Cook || Website

Hope Transcends by Laura Cook of Vision Photography in Cambridge, is an exhibition of photographs that focuses on the transformation of materials through time. She strives to capture overlooked beauty in under appreciated surroundings. From a darkness there is symbolic representation of hope. Strange and interesting patterns and designs emerge to show beauty in the decay and tell a message of promise. Some objects are recognizable, others foreign and strange.

Re-imagined || Alana Farrell || Website

Re-imagined by Fergus native Alana Farrell is an installation that suggest everything has a purpose and place. The material she uses come from objects that have “lost their way”. Farrell highlights the attempts by humankind to define what is useful and thus to either control or ignore the environment. Debris and discarded items commingle in a cohesive form that highlights the beauty in the cast away and forgotten of today’s world. Farrell’s creations merge the natural world and man-made activities to tell the story.
