BURSTING WITH COLOR AND LIFE: AMANDA HARTMAN'S JOYFUL ACRYLIC PAINTINGS
Step into a world where beauty is found in unexpected places. We are lucky to be showcasing this latest show, "Finding Joy." Featuring the captivating artwork of Amanda Hartman, a talented artist hailing from Terrace.
Amanda says "it's all about finding small moments of joy in things we may be taking for granted." Weeds or wildflowers whatever you view them as, this collection of vibrant acrylic paintings is sure to bring some joy. Her canvases come alive with bursts of colour and an alluring angle on invasive species we see every summer. On the evening of June 14th, the gallery hosted an opening reception for "Finding Joy." The event was a celebration of Amanda Hartman's unique artistic vision and her ability to find joy in unexpected places. Visitors had the opportunity to engage with the artist herself, gaining insights into her creative process and the inspiration behind her captivating artworks.
Amanda Hartman's paintings invite us to see weeds in a new light. Often overlooked or dismissed as mere nuisances, these plants hold a remarkable importance and allure that Amanda skilfully captures on her canvases. With her keen eye and passion for art, she unveils the vibrant colours, intricate details, and delicate balance of these often underappreciated species. With each brushstroke, she highlights their unique beauty, inviting viewers to pause, reflect, and find joy in the unexpected corners of nature.
We invite art enthusiasts and nature lovers alike to immerse themselves in this remarkable collection. We are lucky to have this exhibit on display in our Gallery until July 7th. We encourage everyone to visit and experience the gratifying power of art firsthand. Admission is free, the gallery provides a welcoming space for all members of the community to explore and appreciate the diverse world of artistic expression.
