Inspired by …

Step behind the curtain and meet the elusive muse that inspires artist-members in the March exhibit in the Headwaters Arts Gallery at the Alton Mill Arts Centre in Alton [Caledon].

The natural world as magnified, abstracted, or a lingering mood is explored in these pieces.  Likewise, the human figure, as captured by environmental photography or in impressionistic landscapes, is a prominent influence for some members.

“I am inspired completely by the complexities of hands .. . (they) hold clues …” says sculptor, Wendy Reid

Colour, rich and full, texture, both visual and tactile, swelling forms, and strong lines are elemental and joyfully used.  Enjoy sculpture, acrylics, mixed media, photography, textile art,  and a soupcon of the surreal with a nod to the animal world.

The opening reception on Saturday, March 14, from 1-4 pm at the Headwaters Gallery is the perfect time to ‘Meet the Artists’ and share some conversations about what moves them to create while enjoying this exciting and energetic exhibit.

For general information on the Headwaters Arts group of artists and the current shows at the Headwaters Arts Gallery, please call (519) 943-1149.  Gallery hours are from Wednesday  to Sunday and holiday Mondays from 10 am to 5 pm.   Ample free parking and free admission to the gallery.
