Are you an artist living and/or working in the Headwaters Region? Are you looking for other artists who are struggling with many of the same issues you face as the art landscape seems to be changing? Are you looking for the support and encouragement of other creatives? Then perhaps you might be interested in an online community. A Facebook group, Artist Community of the Headwaters Region, has been created and you are invited to join. The purpose of this group is to provide an online community as support and encouragement to other artists who are working in the area. If you have a Facebook account, all you have to do is search for the name (Artist Community of the Headwaters Region) and ask to join. Once you are a member of the group you can invite others to join as well. There are really only 2 rules for the group,

1. it is not a place to sell art and

2. be nice!

You can "leave" the group at any time if you find it is not for you. No pressure! The more the merrier as they say so please join us. If you have any questions feel free to email Deb Menken at:

• Wed Jan 09 - Sun Mar 03
The Web Site Opening Reception: Sun., April 28, 2 pm Runs until June 30, Hockley Valley artist, Emilia Perri, presents “Nature & Structure”, a collection of abstract work that explores the shifting balance between man and nature. Emilia combines layers of transparent paints and organic matter then scrapes, drips, blends, smooths, exposes and conceals to create a harmony that is unique to each work. In 2016, Emilia was the recipient of the Reed T. Cooper Bursary in Visual Art, which allowed her to travel to the Yukon. There she paddled a canoe 375 kilometers down the Yukon River and immersed herself in the wildness of nature. This Yukon experience and her recent trip to Newfoundland inspired these abstract pieces. Emilia’s paintings are luscious, colourful depictions of emotional responses to the grandeur of nature, where she contemplates our relationship to the natural world and to each other.
