‘Luminous Nights’ Art Exhibition by Monika Wright ~ at Art Lab Gallery June 26-July 8

‘Luminous Nights’ Art Exhibition by Monika Wright

Art Lab Studios & Gallery, 121 Main Street
Parrsboro, NS,

There are more stars in the sky than grains of sand on Earth. Does that inspire you with wonder and awe? The dark night skies offer us endless opportunities for fantasy, mystery and new discoveries. It seems that anything is possible when we look to the stars. And these days, science is stepping up with new discoveries that make science fiction seem more like reality than ever before. Amidst the darkness, there is light, hope and wonder. As humans, our potential for change and growth is limitless, just as the night skies appear to be.

Working with acrylics and oils, on canvas and on wood, I find myself immersed in the moment when I paint so that everything else disappears and it is the energy of the universe that flows through me to create the magic. The process of becoming one with the universe is something that I have experienced on an emotional level, and have sought to convey in my artwork throughout the years. May you look up to the luminous night sky and be inspired.
