Hamilton, ON (PRWEB) March 16, 2014
The Nathaniel Hughson Gallery proudly presents its first showing of work by a British Columbia artist, Linda Henningson.
Island Sea Sky, a series of collages inspired by life on her home on Texada Island, 150 km north of Vancouver, will be on display from April 3 to April 26, 2014.
Linda Henningson’s colourful and flowing collages were inspired by a meeting of chance with Canadian Artist Alan Wood, most famous for his outdoor environmental work “Ranch”. Her materials are her own repurposed paintings. Highly textured shapes and rich colors are given new life in the form of islands, sea and sky. “A sense of the magical and otherworldly permeates the work and echoes my experience of life here.”
Linda Henningson, graduated from Emily Carr University of Art and Design with a bachelor of arts in 2006. Since then her work has been exhibited at the Toronto International Art Fair, The New York City Affordable Art Fair and in various group shows in Kelowna and Vancouver. This is her first solo show outside of British Columbia. Linda is a recipient of the Canada Millennium Award of Excellence in 2004 and has had her work featured on the set of the Marilyn Denis show in 2011.
Opening Reception – Artist in Attendance Friday April 11, 2014 7- 10pm.
