Nixie Barton, Grant Leier & Tammy Hudgeon :
West Coast’s Most Wanted
West End GalleryNixie Barton, Grant Leier and Tammy Hudgeon present a much anticipated exhibition of new works. Playing with colour and patterning they present a collection of exciting new West Coast imagery. Nixie continues to explore the encaustic medium. “I was drawn to this technique because of the transparency of the wax, the richness of the surface and the ability to scratch, burn, emboss, layer and fuse the materials”. While Grant features a dramatic shift in his imagery. “I am pleased to be exhibiting with Tammy Hudgeon and Nixie Barton. My new work of animal based imagery is a marked departure from the paintings of the past twenty years; I feel I have learned as much about painting in the past six months as I did in the previous three decades. I am most excited about the multiple glazing and dragging of the canvas with transparent acrylic, the colours are enhanced and the mood of the piece is altered dramatically.”
Perfectly paired, Tammy Hudgeon completes this exciting exhibition with new fused glass works. Her West Coast inspired sculptures feature forests, salmon, bears and eagles, everything sacred to our coastal way of life.
Join us for the opening reception Saturday May 18 with artists in attendance from 1-4pm. Exhibition continues to May 30, 2013.
