Homer Watson House & Gallery invites you to attend
Kitchener Waterloo Society of Artists (KWSA) Annual Juried Exhibition:
Featuring a solo exhibit by Stephanie Fehrenbach:
Flora: Organic Abstracts
March 22 – April 19
KITCHENER, ONTARIO, CANADA: Homer Watson House & Gallery is proud to host The Kitchener-Waterloo Society of Artists' annual Show. KWSA was established over 80 years ago to foster the development of the visual arts community. The arts organization brings together people of all levels of artistic achievement, from emerging artists to professionals. This year's exhibition, Colour Dance, will be juried by Deirdre Chisholm, a self employed artist and educator and the former Director of Programs for the Burlington Arts Centre until 2013.
Each year a member of KWSA is awarded a solo exhibit for his/her achievements in Visual Arts. This year the feature artist is Stephanie Fehrenbach, Flora: Organic Abstracts. Fehrenbach paintings are inspired by patterns and shapes in everyday life. While focusing on aesthetics of painting, Stephanie finds the ebb and flow of movement within nature and applies loose brushwork and dashes of bold oil colour to produce a vibrant interpretation of beauty and rhythm.
We welcome the general public to join us for the following events:
Opening Reception on March 22, 2014 from 2:00 – 4:00 pm
Artists’ Talk on April 18, 2015 from 1:00 – 3:00 pm
Homer Watson House & Gallery is the homestead of Homer Watson, Canada’s first noted landscape artist (1855-1936). In 1980, the house and surrounding three acre property was purchased by the City of Kitchener, a Charitable Foundation was established and the site was designated under the Ontario Heritage Act as being of architectural and historic significance. The Homer Watson House Foundation’s mission is to preserve and celebrate the legacy of Homer Watson’s creative spirit by stimulating the appreciation, enjoyment and practice of the visual arts.
