You are invited this Saturday & May’s concerts & workshops

Visual Voice Fine Art is proud to present two solo exhibits entitled Fishful Thinking and Bright Horizons. The exhibit centered around water and fish features Dorothea LeBlanc‘s paintings and Nancy Robert‘s sculptures.
Bright Horizons is about portraying the splendor of the coastal Maritimes in acrylic, and about water influenced abstract mixed media pieces which make use of the everyday to “upcycle”.
Fishful Thinking is stoneware, earthenware and porcelain fish inspired sculpture, whimsical and technically impressive. Together, the shows make us ponder our role in and interactions with the landscape of our province. Don’t miss it!
You are INVITED to join us this Saturday, May 12 from 7 to 9 pm with a free reception, everyone welcome. The show continues Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 12:30 to 5 pm until June 9th.

Check out what else is going on at the gallery, Concerts & Workshops:

Become a part of the growing community who are learning to reduce, reuse and recycle in their artwork with Dorothea LeBlanc. We will create a 5″x7″ art piece (a board will be PROVIDED) using a variety of upcycled items (from your miscellaneous drawers for example), glue and acrylic paint. This is a great opportunity to create a memento incorporating bits and pieces that are meaningful to you. Suitable for all levels.

“Sisterhood of Sound” is a collaborative project that features the original compositions of Ontario-based artists Annie Sumi and The Lifers. Inspired by the natural world, their arrangement of cello, accordion, ukulele, guitar and four-part harmonies express the dynamics and subtleties of the Canadian landscape. With support from the Ontario Arts Council, this four-piece-female ensemble will be taking this unique collaboration through the United States of America, Eastern Canada, and Continental Europe.

With the upcoming release of their album “Honey Suite”, The Lifers have received support from CBC, Spotify, and community radio for their singles “Front Door” and “Sister” (2018). Annie Sumi has received nominations for Female Vocalist (HMAs, 2015), Emerging Artist of the Year (CFMAs, 2017, Hidden Roots Collective), and Best Songwriter (TIMAs, 2016). Her recent release, “In the Unknown”, has been regarded by CBC and Community Radio across the country.
