Here and There

An Exhibition by Sheila Forsyth

 

PEI artist, Shelia Forsyth, presents a solo exhibit that explores subjects and colurs of beautiful places and spaces, from across PEI and around the world, which have inspired her.

 

Forsyth invites viewers to come on a journey of exploration with her to enjoy colourful fishing sheds, bright buildings, sea rocks and arches, happy harbours, beaches and more from around the world.

 

Forsyth is always exploring media, but primarily works in oils along with linocut printmaking, silk dyes, and mixed media. She loves plein air painting. The spark for  the exhibit,  Here and There: A Journey in Colour came when she was in Ireland painting a row of buildings when the thought occurred to her that she could paint rows of buildings from around the world for an exhibit.

 

"Here and There" will be shown at the Lefurgey Cultural Centre in Summerside as part of the Sixty Days of Fame series. The exhibit can be viewed, Monday through Friday from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm, free of charge. Lefurgey is located at 205 Prince Street. The building is closed on weekends and holidays.

MacNaught History Centre and Archives:

TOSH Graduate Art Exhibit

 

As a celebration of one of life’s major milestones, the works of ten TOSH Art students are on exhibit in the art gallery of MacNaught History Centre and Archives.

 

Students, who wish to study art at Summerside’s Three Oaks High School are enrolled for the three years of their high school journey. Art instructor, Shannon Dunphy’s objective in teaching the art curriculum is to have the students leaving the art room at the end of the grade twelve year “seeing the world differently.” Dunphy says that over the three years the students minds open to creative possibilities, and as their skill sets grow, so too does their individual unique styles, which is “a pretty neat place to see them reach.” Four of the students are pursuing post-secondary art studies.

 

The Grad Art Show enables the wider community to experience the artistic creativity of the grad students. Lori Ellis, Director of Culture Summerside, expressed her excitement at once again hosting the grad show at MacNaught. “Part of our role at Culture Summerside is to promote and celebrate the arts in our community, and it is very satisfying to partner with TOSH in giving the grad students the public platform to showcase their work. The diversity and vibrancy of our arts community continues to grow, and these students play an important role in that development. I encourage people to visit the graduate show in support of our young artists. Perhaps visitors will leave seeing the world differently.”

The exhibit runs until Saturday, June 22. MacNaught, situated at 75 Spring Street, is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm. There is no admission charge.
