Exhibit: Travelling the North by Lauren Oliver
July 1 - July 31
Artists on Elgin is proud to announce that their exhibit for the month of July will comprise of the work created by solo emerging artist, Lauren Oliver in her exhibition titled, ‘Travelling the North’. Her evening reception will be held on Friday July 6, from 5:00-8:00pm.
Lauren’s images are straightforward, and relatively simplified with a large portion of it being inspired by what she is feeling or experiencing at the time. For this exhibit, she has chosen to use acrylic paint mixed with a high gloss medium. She uses acrylic because of the diverse color palette and depth. The gloss medium adds texture and depth to the image. Additionally, all of these paintings are referenced from photographs Oliver has taken in Northern Ontario.
“The north is under appreciated [and] I would like to showcase its natural beauty through these paintings which are focused on the natural landscape of Northern Ontario”
Artists on Elgin welcomes the public to an evening reception that will highlight the talent of this new and emerging artist in our community! The exhibit itself will run from July 3-26.
Artists on Elgin is located at 168 Elgin Street, and is open Monday to Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
