“Expressions” March 30 – April 29, 2012

“Expression is the essence of one’s soul, the spirit of one’s medium and the catalyst for creating vibrant, meaningful, passionate art.

JCHAC is pleased to present “Expressions”, a group exhibition presenting art by Lynn Borysiuk, Dawn Kay, Brittany Lauren and Sherry Prenevost.

This remarkable exhibit reaches out to involve and impact the viewer in a deeply inspiring and moving manner through artistic works influenced by human experience and the wonder of nature.

Refreshing, evocative and diverse works of art are presented encompassing water colours, mixed medium, acrylics and photography.

This exhibit is both abstract and literal.  It is exhilarating, exciting and impacting.

Lynn Borysiuk uses distinctive bold intense colour, not commonly found in watercolour, to create dramatic works of art.  Her work captures scenes from endangered landscapes to the rugged backcountry of Haliburton and the serene hills of Tuscany.  Lynn has studied at the Haliburton School of Fine Art, and OCAD. Come experience the majesty of drama interwoven throughout her work as she takes us on a journey of light, shadow, contrast and natural beauty.

Brittany Lauren’s work is multi layered, vibrant and alive.  She paints with acrylics applying washes, glazes and scrubs to create depth and texture in her work.  Brittany is a nominee for the prestigious Marty Awards for Emerging Visual Artist of the Year.  Her work has been featured in Limelight Magazine and on television.  She studied art at both Sheridan College and in New York.  She is also an arts instructor.  Join us in seeing this unique work engraved with emotion, excitement and energy.

Dawn Kay is a mixed medium artist with poignant, passionate works of art.   Her work is a combination of paint, charcoal, drawing and multiple mediums.  Focusing on the inherently vibrant and luminous elements of one’s nature and environment, she captures the wonder of simple moments and importance of our interconnectedness.  Dawn has studied art at Ryerson University and holds a MFA’s from St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas.  Dawn’s work has been published and has been instrumental in raising funds and awareness in multiple philanthropic projects.

Sherry Prenevost is an internationally exhibited fine art and social documentary photographer with works in the collections of the Queen of England, Governor General of Canada and the President of Sierra Leone.  Her work is expressive, emotional, and visually stunning.   It is a provocative narrative of beauty, nature and humanity.  Sherry’s work has connected art with humanity bringing change in many areas throughout the world.  She is also a Marty Award nominee for emerging Visual Artist of the Year.  Her work has been featured on television, in publications and resides in the permanent Archives of Canada.

These artists are sought after for their work.  Come be artistically inspired, moved, challenged and invigorated by this important exhibit.
