2014-06-03, 1:37 PM

BROCKVILLE – The Marianne van Silfhout Gallery is pleased to announce the 7th Annual St. Lawrence College Alumni Juried Show, “Life in Colour”. The exhibit will be on view at the Gallery located on St. Lawrence College’s Brockville campus from June 6 to July 18, 2014. The opening reception will be held on Thursday, June 5, 2014 from 7:00 to 9:00pm.

The ethos of artists is to be inspired by the world around them and to convey this experience through their chosen medium. Colour is an important element in expressing mood and narrative. As such, “Life in Colour” features works by St. Lawrence College alumni that reflect their world, thoughts, or emotion through the use of colour. The Alumni Show provides St. Lawrence College alumni from any program and any campus to exhibit their work in a state-of-the-art community art gallery.

Viewers to this year’s Alumni Show will see a variety of artistic expressions including paintings in oil, watercolour, acrylics, and mixed media, as well as digital photography, by 25 artists: Dorothy A. Adlington, Audrey Bain, Lynne Bowker, Belia Brandow, Carolyn Buyers, Bernard Clark, Colleen O'Connell, Helen Fenton, Elsie Gallinger, Heather Griffith, Marg Grothier, Arlene Hare, Keith Hare, Jyneen Horton, Kitty Kelly, Mike Laking, Kathy Lavender, Hanna MacNaughtan, Elaine McClintock, John McClintock, Pam McKinnon, Jesse McMahon, Barbara Patrick, Sharon Stein, and Marilyn White.
