Special to The Lake Report
A new art exhibit featuring the works of talented local artists will open at the Niagara Pumphouse Arts Centre on Wednesday, Feb. 1
“Reflections” is a unique and thought-provoking display showcasing the diverse styles and perspectives of some members of the Niagara-on-the-Lake Arts Collective.
“The works on display are truly remarkable and we can’t wait for the public to see them in person,” said Pumphouse director Rima Boles.
An opening reception for “Reflections” will be held on Sunday, Feb. 5, from 2 to 4 p.m.
Artists will be in attendance to answer questions and discuss their work. The exhibit will be on display until March 25.
The exhibit will feature a variety of media, including paintings, mixed media and sculptures, all of which explore the theme.
Among the works on display is a painting by Niagara-on-the-Lake artist Lynn Weiner.
“My painting ‘Queen Street’ depicts an early summer day in Old Town Niagara-on-the-Lake,” said Weiner.
“Stores and restaurants are welcoming visitors and the sunny street’s reflection is caught in the Stagecoach Restaurant’s large window.”
Well-known NOTL artist Ronald Boaks also is participating.
About his collage “Duo LXXVII,” he said, “After working on one theme for almost all of 2022, I realized in words, no less, the romantic modernist’s dilemma: how to balance beauty and the sublime.”
The mixed-media artwork that will be on display offers a glimpse of Boaks’ current works.
The Pumphouse is at 247 Ricardo St. and is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission to the exhibit is free.
