NEW ART SHOW AT THE CHAMBERS GALLERY, ALMONTE, ON

Monika Seidenbusch
http://www.kaleidoscopestudio.ca
monika@kaleidoscopestudio.ca
613.264.2460


Ladies for Tea, 2014-09
Acrylic on stretched (black) framed canvas  20″ x 16″

Monika likes to paint as to tell a story, with a character,  a setting, and a mood.  She likes her work to bring out a sense of peacefulness, atmosphere, simplicity, life and beauty.

Her style is detailed and realistic when drawing; and, freer and abstracted when painting.  She prefers to portray the human form, but also enjoys illustrating botanicals and painting abstracts.

Inspired by the simple lines of Matisse, the colours and exaggeration of Modigliani, the sculptures of Henri Moore and the technical accuracy of many of the old masters, such as Charles Bargue, she combines what she has learned to refine her art and bring out the essence and beauty of nature.

Monika is a well known award winning artist and is currently a member of the Arts Ottawa East (AOE), the Ottawa Mixed Media Artists (OMMA), and the Nepean Fine Arts League (NFAL).

Born in Ontario and raised in Canada and Germany, Monika’s interest in art has been with her all her life.  Her mediums have been primarily pencil, pencil crayon, acrylics, water colour and mixed media collage.  For several years she has been attending life drawing studios.

Monika has three daughters and lives in Perth, Ontario with her husband.

 

Krista Cameron
1 August  –  1 October 2017

Krista Cameron

Krista Cameron is a potter and ceramics artist who works against the idyllic backdrop of Charleston Lake.

She believes in getting outside and connecting with nature.  She tries to bring some of the outdoor into her work through the softness of her pieces and the colours used in the finish.  When she isn’t outside with her bees and kayak, Krista immerses herself in creating pottery that can be used, loved, and functions well in every day life.

Krista works with clay because of the strength it offers, the tactile nature of her art offers the opportunity to introduce character and manipulate the subtleness of a piece.

Because clay can create decorative and functional forms,  it allows Krista to offer collectors a chance to connect with pottery that fulfills their desires and reflects their personality.

 

Krista teaches pottery to adults and kids in Brockville, Athens and Kingston.

 

With branches in Almonte and Pakenham, the library offers 67,000+ items, both print and digital.
