Two artists showing
Emerging artist Mary Lawrence will be featured in her first exhibition during the month of September at the Wellington Artists’ Gallery and Art Centre.
She will be displaying a selection of recent watercolour pieces, a news release said.
Her work reflects life, nature and beauty, said the release. Catching and interpreting the light is always her focus, it said.
Freda Wrench’s love for nature and environment will be on display at the Wellington Artists’ Gallery this September.
Through her pieces in the exhibition, called Earth, Air and Water, Wrench uses symbolism to convey the connection between the human race and nature to hopefully raise awareness to help save the earth, a news release said.
Wrench is from Caledon.
The gallery is on 6142 Wellington Rd. 29 near Fergus.
City artist in Kitchener
An exhibition of work by Guelph artist Debbie Thompson Wilson that takes a peak at the medieval world opens on Saturday Sept. 15 at Joseph Schneider Haus in downtown Kitchener.
The show by Wilson, who does miniature painting and is Joseph Schneider Haus’s Folk Artist-in-Residence for 2012, is titled The Medieval World Illuminated. It continues to Nov. 11 at the national historic site at 466 Queen St. S.
Highlighting monthly labours in medieval times, her show features a modern replica of a Book of Hours – hand-written books used in private devotions that were regarded as status symbols.
Wilson will also be on hand demonstrating medieval lettering and personalizing souvenir bookplates for visitors from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. that day, as part of a larger event at Joseph Schneider Haus which includes behind-the-scenes tours.
