The new year is a time for renewal and the opportunity to ‘turn over a new leaf’ so the saying goes. Headwaters Arts is excited to present its first member art show of 2023 showcasing an impressive exhibition of bold and beautiful works by 21 artists depicting visually their personal promises of new adventures, breaking free and moving forward.

Participating member artists include: Agnes Bellegris, Alina Lloyd, Anita Pietras, Anne Schnurr, Carol Ann Michaelson, Christine Schubert, Deborah Powell, Hildegarde Sausik, Jason Misurka, Jodie Willis, Julie Park, Laurie Lamb, Lynn Gilbank, Marnie Cooke, Melissa Kristensen-Smith, Nancy MacNabb, Nonie Dauphinais, Patty Maher, Susan Powell, Vanessa Hertzberg and Vanessa Sica.

The over 25 selected pieces created include works in a variety of mediums: oil, watercolour and acrylic paintings, photography, soft pastels, textiles and mixed/multi media.

Jason Misurka, an emerging Canadian abstract artist from Mississauga says,” My paintings intuitively engage the subconscious mind and dreamlike state capturing moments frozen in time and space. I use a combination of layering translucent bold colour palettes while manipulating abstracted shapes and forms to evoke the senses with energy, flow of movement and joy.” Jason uses air brush, hand painting and acrylic markers.

Melissa Kristensen-Smith is a photographer from Kitchener says this about her photograph on exhibit, “Women everywhere present themselves in different ways to the world. What they feel on the inside can be quite different. In the double exposure image, I try to reflect these inner feelings. All nudes were shot in studio in black and white then double exposed digitally.”

Meet the artists at the official Opening Reception to be held on Saturday, January 14, 2023 from 1-3 pm at the Headwaters Gallery.
