June 2015 – LIZ RUSS
I generally prefer creating landscapes,although I’ve been known to stray into nether regions of abstract art, as exhibited in my Cobalt show last year. In either style, I love to create visual interest with bold textural brush strokes and lively use of colour. I aim to show the beauty that exists in the nature and abundance that surrounds us and I often add a twist – a collaged leaf or mixed media cutouts that add humour or draw attention to controversy – such as the infrastructures and scars of human development and the persistence of nature in recapturing what once belonged to the earth. It seems like a good “conversation” to have.
You can see a variety of my art at www.lizruss.com, at Cobalt Gallery during the month of June, as well as at my new studio gallery at 2359 Queen Street East.

April 23 to May 26, 2015 – FELICITY SOMERSET “Weathered”
“Weathered” is a collection of fine art photographs by Felicity Somerset. In this portfolio, she returns to her interest in creating abstract and highly textured images. The compositions capture aspects of metal and wooden surfaces that have been weathered by time and the elements – a perspective that is of enduring fascination for her.
April 23 to May 26, 2015
Reception Sunday April 26th, 1-4pm.
February 21st – March 29th 2015 – ARCHIVE by Anne-Marie Olczak
2015 brings some exciting changes and to celebrate Anne-Marie Olczak will be having show of paintings and drawings at Cobalt Gallery from the end of February through the month of March.
There will be some new works exploring the neighbourhoods and lake that she loves as well as some older works from her personal inventory.
The show ARCHIVE is an opportunity to look at how colour and style have changed or stayed the same in Anne-Marie’s works through the years.
