in the time of Covid Credit Valley Artisan members
welcome you to their exhibition as featured artists for September at Heather’s Bakery and Café, 103 Main Street South in Georgetown.
“From the strong nod to the rich palette of autumn to the many media we use, such as cold wax and oil, chalk pastels, photography, acrylics, and coloured pencils, it is evident that our artistic practices have broken out of our studios and have indeed resurfaced”, says Munson.
Working with cold wax and oils allows Coleman to experiment in a free, abstract style compared to her acrylic paintings. Continual exploration and learning are an underlying theme for her, which has included jewelry making, mask making for dance and theater, painting pointe shoes, creating root and clay sculptures and woodburning designs on handcrafted walking sticks.
Munson is an emerging artist with soft pastel work and is reembracing her passion with all things photography. Over the years this has included building five darkrooms and shooting copious rolls of Kodachrome 64 and B&W film. Analogue Meets Digital is the title of her Archival Collection of Limited Edition Giclee prints, one set from Kodachrome 64 images and the second set of B&W images on different archival or acid-free art papers.
The eclectic mix of their styles and range of media that Coleman and Munson work in make for an energetic and engaging show not to be missed. Likewise, they recommend you not miss enjoying the flourless chocolate torte or sampling the raspberry chocolate mousse.
With Heather’s tasty delights, the beauty of the Halton Hills area, and the inspirational pieces of art in the RE-Surfacing exhibit, there are many reasons it is worth the drive to Georgetown!
