Show at the Pontiac: Stone School Gallery, Portage-du-Fort

While working in Nunavik, northern Quebec in a small Cree village, I decided to respond to a call for artists to assemble a show at Stone School Gallery in Portage-du-Fort, Quebec. I am pleased to tell you all that the show is now in progress and is titled 'Disguised Fragility'. I am most grateful to the gallery team at the Pontiac Art Association for their support in getting this show underway.
The opening was July 18 and it will progress until Sunday, August 10, 2014. The gallery is open from 11-4p.m. or by appointment. Please call me at 613 315 2753 to arrange this.
You will see a collection of taiga landscapes that are at once desolate but yet rich in expansiveness. There are watercolours of sunsets of Hudson's Bay, large shimmering Canadian shield rock faces and stunted, weathered black spruce. See encaustics that are responses to many of the watercolours but have their own richer earthy textural surfaces.
On Sunday, August 10 at 2 p.m., I will conduct an Artist's Talk describing the techniques I use in the encaustic process. I invite you to come and, at that time, see the final day of Disguised Fragility.
