Our 8th and final Artist in Residence for this year, Lynda Shalagan

Our 8th and final Artist in Residence for this year, Lynda Shalagan, has less than a week left to soak up the inspiration in and around Parrsboro. Drop by to see what she’s been up to.

https://www.facebook.com/ArtLabParrsboro

Lynda Shalagan’s work in painting, while oscillating between representation and abstraction, documents an intuitive inquiry into the forms and processes found in nature. Inspired by ecological, spiritual and psychological perspectives, she is interested in the way nature directs and confirms the spectrum of life displaying pattern and process in unlimited variation in the landscape and the human body/mind.
