Visual Voice Fine Art Gallery PRESS RELEASE – Private Spaces Art Show

Visual Voice Fine Art is proud to reopen for 2020 with Private Spaces a show of new artworks by Rosemary Clarke Young and Kit Clarke.

“We hope the virus doesn’t curtain people’s enjoyment of this great exhibit, this is the culmination of a year of work for these two artists.” Says gallery owner Nuri Guerra. “We are doing everything we can to follow the province’s measures, and like other galleries we are attempting to support our artists during this difficult time.”

This is the first joint show for the artists and sisters, who until now have only exhibited together at group shows. Growing up they were both strongly influenced and inspired by their mother, also an artist and a draughtsman. Though they had this same departure point, their careers in the art world diverged taking them in different paths, now coming full circle and uniting again. Common themes in their work are intimate interiors and landscapes, even though their approach and media choices differ. Rosemary’s current work is predominantly watercolour batik on rice paper, and Kit’s recent work is acrylic on translucent vellum paper and mixed media.

East Hants Fine Arts Assoc. CALL to ARTISTS



In light of the arrival of COVID-19 in our province, at our last meeting last Sunday, we decided to take the responsible action of canceling our art show and sale scheduled for the first weekend in May 2020.

The only prudent action in the midst of a worldwide pandemic is for us to be part of the solution and cancel this event.

Though we are disappointed we will revisit late summer to see if we can have one in the fall.

So to all our supporters, stay safe and stay tuned in late summer.
