Meanwhile, between having lovely housemates for a couple of weeks, enjoying their company and helping them find a place to live, I’ve been preparing for an exhibit opening this Friday, 6 November, at the Secord Gallery in Halifax. The paintings will be on the walls until 27 November.
If you are in the area and can, do stop by. The invitation reads:
There Is No Hidden Meaning Here Recent Works by Leya Evelyn
November 6 to 27, 2009 Opening reception: Friday, November 6 at 7pm
Born in Washington, D.C. and educated at both Brown and Yale Universities in the United States, Leya Evelyn moved toNova Scotia in the early 1980’s after having lived and worked for some time in New York City. Evelyn’s paintings show her passionate concern with pure forms, abstract shapes, and intense colours. The powerfully rich and deep colours that dominate her paintings and the loving, painterly application of those colours demonstrate the artist’s abiding interest in the techniques and effects of abstract painting. Leya is internationally recognized for her work.
This new body of work reflects an even greater confidence and clarity of vision, as the artist continues to refine her unique and compelling visual language.
Please join us for the opening reception. By Thursday, November 5, works in the exhibition can also be viewed on our website from the following link: http://www.secordgallery.com/gallery/Current-Exhibition
