June 7 to July 12, 2018 Opening Reception Thursday, June 7, 6-7:30 p.m.
One of the best known and most accomplished Belleville artists is having a celebration and we are delighted to present her retrospective exhibition, “Barbara Whelan: Celebrating 90 years”. Barb has been on the leading edge of the Belleville Art Scene for many years and was a founder of many of the arts groups and associations some of which are still going strong today. Turning 90 years young this summer, Barb suggested that it would be a great time to have a show. We couldn’t agree more and invite you to join us to celebrate this wonderful woman’s life and her art on June 7th from 6-7:30 as we open her show and look back on a lifetime of creating.
Maria Marino is a fairly new arrival on the art scene and we’re thrilled to share her talent with her first solo show ever “Be My Voice”. As a recent immigrant from ravaged Venezuela, Maria says: “My country is being torn apart while I enjoy incredible freedom. As an artist, painting has become not only my refuge, but a way to communicate when words fail.” A portion of all sales will go to the Canadian Venezuelan Engagement foundation.
The opening reception for Maria's show is on June 7th from 6-7:30 p.m.
