a member solo show by Lynn Ellis
Exhibition running: August 4 to 26
Opening reception: Thursday August 4, 6-8pm

This landscape exhibition is an exploration of the South Shore of Nova Scotia to create images that mirror the idea of evanescence.
The landscape for me is a bridge between the deepest parts of my spirit and the outer temporal world. This intersection is of great interest to me. The mists, drops of water, wet surfaces all reflect a transient evanescence. This creates a vulnerably of the scene, it’s breathtaking beauty, but it’s also temporary and the scene may disappear and transform at any moment.
I believe this concept mirrors the vulnerability and transience of our lives, we are not the same today as we were yesterday and we will all change again tomorrow. It is for us to take in the beauty of today, to live in the moment and to be aware of its evanescence.
Hi All my wonderfully creative fellow artists.
I am inviting you to the Deanery Project in Lower Ship Harbour on August 21, 2016 for the Launch of my 100 Wild Islands series in support of Nova Scotia Nature Trust.
I would also like to invite you to come plein aire painting that day in support of the Deanery Project. Find out more about the project at thedeaneryproject.com
There is no registration fee and you will receive 50 percent of all works sold. It is rain or shine but there are some wonderfully unique indoor spaces. On Saturday there is a meet and greet and tour at 3pm and pizza cooked in the outdoor oven.
My show will be up all weekend but the official opening is at 2pm on Sunday. Creating on Sunday will be from 10-3pm so I will hopefully get a few hours of painting in myself. Photographers are invited to shoot on Saturday or anytime between now and then so your images will be ready for sale.
Thanks and blessings to all
