April Shows

April showers bring May flowers, and also a host of good shows to visit. This month at Patricia Rovzar Gallery features the intricate work of Isabelle du Toit. The images are beautiful, quiet and expertly rendered. I had the opportunity to meet the artist last week, and her intensity towards her subject drew me ever closer to the work.

Across the street at Friesen Gallery you can see the art from the book "Speak for the Trees", with work by an astounding number of exceptional artists including: Lynda Lowe (pictured above), Martin Blank, Kim Keever, Laura Sharp Wilson, JanisMiltenberger and more. Don't miss the exceptional piece by the Starn Brothers. Speak for the Trees.

Make your way down to the Alexis Hotel to see the new work of Alicia Tormey. Alicia's use of the wax medium is absolutely gorgeous in technique and her graceful compositions bring you into the dream state of the work. Alicia Tormey
