High Arctic Light

Works by Janet Read
Opening reception Saturday, March 30th, from 2-4 in the Gallery at L. E. Shore
Read is a painter, musician and poet who grew up near the shores of Lake Simcoe.
The inspiration for her current body of work, 'High Arctic Light: Landscapes of Consciousness’, came from a month-long immersion in high Arctic geography. Read reveals how the landscape ‘compelled her imagination with its austerity, light, space, fragility and beauty’. “Wilding and cultivation go hand in hand in this delicately balanced environment”.
Don’t miss Janet Read's paintings, on display from March 30th till April 27th, during regular library hours.
The opening reception is a licensed event.
