The exhibit features four painters with four vastly different styles which, despite representing disparate time periods, somehow still hang well together. Iconography situates the work’s relation to European religious painting. Impressionism is rooted in the artistic push-back against the painting of the dark, broodish Barbizon School of painting. The abstract painting of the late 20th century divorced the non-figurative out of the the yolk of figurative painting, as anticipated by Turner in his abstracted sunset series. Pop art introduced and accentuated the introduction of cultural and consumeristic into the realm of high art. Each of these genres of painting has remained actively practiced through time. Here is a brief look at the work exhibited in this show.

Mike Sciortino
Once Mike discovered the thrill of applying paint to canvas, he has never looked back. “I can’t stop painting”, he says. “I can’t help myself. Please relieve me of some of my paintings so I can have some space at home to keep making more.”

Heather Hancheruk
Heather is a painter and a veteran visual art educator, having taught art to high school students for over 34 years. Through her artwork she has questioned the purpose of humankind, the nature of creation, and the presence of holiness in daily activities and life itself. Her paintings are offered to viewers to enjoy, and seek answers for one’s own journey toward wholeness.

Kathleen Menzies
The satisfaction from making art lies in the meditative aspects of observation, drawing, mixing colours, depicting values and contrasts. Paintings often begin with the application of colours, shapes, collage elements and lines to establish a background. Each layer informs the next. Painting is an intuitive process and can lead in many directions. Kathleen responds to the combinations of color and line, the relationships of shapes and edges or the interplay between pattern and scale as they appear.

Judith Brisson
Judith is an educator and an MFA graduate from the Vermont College of Fine Arts, and an independent multidisciplinary artist who often creates, site-specific installations around ideas of peaceful resolution of conflicts. Her writing has been featured in NACLA, Siafu Magazine, and the Upstream Journal. In this show, Judith will present her return to neo-impressionistic landscape painting – a long-time love that emerges from the act of applying paint and the enjoyment of being out of doors.

Cette expo de peinture propose quatre peintres qui se trouvent à pratiquer des genres de peinture vastement différents, mais qui se tiennent quand-même bien ensemble.

Mike Sciortino
Une fois découvert son amour pour l’application de la peinture sur surface, Mike ne s’est jamais demander pourquoi. « Je ne peux pas m’empêcher de peindre, » il dit. SVP m’enlevez quelques-unes pour que je puisse avoir de l’espace chez moi pour continuer à peindre!

Heather Hancheruk
Heather est peintre et prof de l’art visuel chez l’école secondaire depuis trente-quatre ans. À travers de son art, elle s’est questionner le pourquoi de l’être humain, la nature de la création et la présence du spirituel dans la vie quotidienne. Elle s’offre au public ses peintures dans leur cheminement vers l’intégrité personnelle.

Kathleen Menzies
La satisfaction de faire de l’art devient de l’aspect méditatif de l’observation, en dessin, mélange de couleurs et la représentation des contrastes et valeurs des couleurs. Ses peintures commencent souvent en plaçant de pigments, de formes, éléments de collage et des lignes, tous qui deviennent une surface de base. Chaque couche s’informe à la prochaine, un processus intuitif qui peut s’amener en plusieurs directions. Kathleen répond aux combinaisons de couleurs et de lignes, aux relations entre les formes et les bords, l’entrejeu de motif et échelle.

Judith Brisson
Judith est éducatrice et graduée du Vermont College of Fine Arts. Elle est une artiste Independent et pluridisciplinaire qui crée souvent des installations ou des actions, in-situes, reliés à l’idée des résolutions paisibles des conflits. Son écriture a été représentée dans les journaux Six Hens, NACLA, Siafu et The New Quarterly. Pour cette expo, Judith exposera son retour à la peinture pleine-aire, néo-impressionniste, qui l’a toujours plu comme processus.
