Sunshine Coast painters, Marlene Lowden and Christy Sverre join forces in the latest exhibit on display now through April 20 in the Doris Crowston Gallery at the Sunshine Coast Arts Centre, corner of Trail and Medusa in Sechelt.
Christy Sverre returns to the West Coast after living internationally for the last sixteen years. Her inspiration derives from her environment, from the depths of Asian lotus ponds and Burmese temples to the Canadian forest and oceans. Sverre reveals the underlying nature, strength and energy of her subject in works comprised of layers of symbols, linguistic marks and riots of colour.
Marlene Lowden is an abstract painter who primarily works in oil in order to paint her impressions of life on canvas. Lowden considers the physical act of painting, the process, as important as colour choice, contrast, composition and all the ‘laws’ of design and art making. She sees the canvas as her page, brush strokes as her letters and colours as her diction.
The gallery is open Wednesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. and on Sunday from 1 – 4 p.m. For further information please contact the Arts Centre at 604-885-5412 or visit www.scartscouncil.com
