Margaret Sutherland is one such artist who sought varied means to engage with her art production in relative isolation. The results of her challenges were in an exhibition at Studio 22 on the Market Square, which ended on Friday. Titled “Normal/Abnormal,” the exhibition traced (in the artist’s own words) her “bumpy, frequently interrupted artistic and personal ride of the past three years.”

Ending the decade and kicking off 2020 in a BIG way! Have you spent the better part of 2019 staring at blank walls? Have you dreamed of finding a perfect one-of-a-kind signature piece for your home or office? 2019 has been a great year for Studio22. We have had 8 successful solo shows as well as acquired a number of fabulous new artists. […]
Thematically, Winik’s new paintings are composed of two main series; Girl(s) in a Corner and Female Circus Performers. The first series depicts young women in party dresses, sitting alone in corners, confronting the viewer face on. The simplicity of the theme allows the artist’s process to focus solely on interacting with mark-making until a figure forms, each with its own personality and attitude. Sometimes these girls appear a bit broken, other times they challenge the viewer, but mostly there’s a bit of both. It is that merging of conflicting senses that keeps the audience intrigued – with strength and vulnerability co-habiting as they so often do in real life.
10 New Works from Lee Stewart
Erika Olson’s new solo exhibition features a return to the large colourful abstracts which marked the early days of her painting career.
Krakow’s work reminds us that our subjective viewpoints necessarily reflect experience filtered through time and that which we most accurately perceive often demands focused attention and thoughtful exploration.
Savour the seduction of subtle colours and gestures in paint; embark on a voyage of personal discovery. Yes, you can get ‘ THERE’ from here!

The works suggest moments of solitude as well as intimate pairings, illustrations of what it means to be close to nature and to one another.
Blenderman’s tireless imagination is hardly exhausted by local streetscapes and landscapes. Realistic, classically styled still lives and wildly expressive abstracts have also been the subject of his attention over the years.
Each work has been selected by the artist because it represents a piece which they feel deeply about; works which have yet to find their soulmates.
All it takes is the subtlest hint of a horizon line for our minds to see landscape in an abstract painting. We’re drawn to wide-open spaces and expansive views, and landscape paintings connect us to these places. The concept of abstract landscape allows me incredible artistic freedom and yet grounds the work in visual experience. – Debra Krakow
