Spirit of the Hills Events

Northumberland Hills Hospital Exhibit – May to November 2019

Location: Cobourg

The Northumberland Hills Hospital graciously offers free exhibit space to Spirit of the Hills painters and photographers.

The exhibit is bi-annual. Participating painters and photographers may refresh their work more frequently, e.g. every 8 weeks or so during the 6 month long exhibit.

The hospital provides a hanging system for our use. However, the system does limit the number of works on display to a maximum of 14. It is not possible to stack works one above the other.

Accordingly size of participating art work will be taken into account during the selection process. The minimum size for a framed work is 21 inches in width. A maximum of 2 submissions are accepted.

In other words, the venue lends itself of large pieces of work.

To date, sales have occurred during each exhibit. Note that 10% of the sales commission goes to the hospital; and 15% to SOTH. There is no cost to the artist for participating in this exhibit.

Catscapes & Disparities at Capers Restaurant

Spirit of the Hills Arts Association presents the art of Linda McClelland

Spirit of the Hills Arts Association presents the art of Linda McClelland. Catscapes & Disparities at Capers Restaurant April 29, 2019 - July 28, 2019. The organic shapes of cats against the harder lines of landscapes or interiors create an interesting dynamic for me. I enjoy bringing the warmth of a living creature into an abstract space. The challenge of marrying gesture, colour, shapes and value with some success is a lifelong pursuit. The search is never easy but the rewards are so worth it.
