Peer Gallery of Contemporary Art in Lunenburg is open for the season!
Exhibitions by our 16 member artists change monthly.
A feature exhibition of work by Douglas Boutilier and Sally Warren
will grace the front gallery space from May 19 to 29, daily from noon
Perhaps the most amazing thing about this exhibition, in addition to the eloquent mastery of multiple media, is the breadth and variety of technique and subject matter. The result, a fascinating mix of painting, drawing, printmaking and collage that explores the depth of
each artist’s experience.
Douglas and Sally both graduated from the Ontario College of Art in the 1970s.
Douglas describes his work as ‘the result of problem solving; the product of as much rational deliberation as possible without deadening the effect. The finished work should have that “wondrous strange” something, inexplicable to analysis but in itself inducing rapt attention.
Sally, whose previous work tends toward the figurative, defines this new collection as a result of her being “driven to distraction (or rather) abstraction” by the anxiety and isolation of the pandemic.
