Perception: A Look at Contemporary Knife Art

Expressionist Art by Betsy Miller

Show & Sale: June 27 – August 22, 2017 at
Capers Restaurant, 28 Bridge Street West, Campbellford, Ontario
705-653-5262

In pursuit of her life-long passion for design and colour, and upon completion of the Fine Arts Certificate program in 2010 at Oakville’s Sheridan College, Betsy began to develop her unique expressionistic painting style. She specializes in highly original textured work in acrylic on canvas and wood. With a limited but vibrant colour palette, Betsy mixes and applies paint using large palette knives and a variety of scraping and reapplying techniques. Betsy’s work continues to evolve in exciting new directions.

Rooted in Life by Laura Berman

Spirit of the Hills presents “Rooted in Life” The Photographic Art of Laura Berman

Show and Sale May 2nd to June 27th 2017 at Capers Restaurant
28 Bridge Street West
Campbellford, ON K0L 1L0
705-653-5262

“My work explores ways of seeing and interpreting the natural world through the intersection of photography and painting, creating images that mix painterly qualities with photographic realism. By digitally painting at the pixel level and adding rich textures, lighting and brush strokes to the overall image, I go beyond the photographic capture to create images that are strikingly different from the original capture.”
