Colour, form and texture can help you find a Sense of Place

By David F. Rooney

The Visual Arts Centre’s first regular show of the exhibition season will help you locate a Sense of Place — and not necessarily here, either — through colour, form and texture in more than 40 works of art by local artists.

The show opened Friday and some of the works are absolutely spectacular. There’s a fair amount of humour, too, and a few very quirky pieces that patrons of the arts are bound to enjoy.

This show, is open to the public until May 4 and the Visual Arts Centre’s Main Gallery is open Tuesdays through Saturday from 12 until 4 pm. Don’t miss it. And now just to further whet your appetite for local art here are some images from the opening that I hope you will enjoy:
