Faces and Feelings

Presented by the Quinte Arts Council, Faces & Feelings features new paintings by Judy Clark. This collection in oil and oil with cold wax explores a range of human emotions familiar to us all. In her work, the viewer may recognize a quiet celebration of simple pleasures, or may identify with more serious emotions. With her painting entitled Gilberto, Judy started his sketch in September and completed it after he passed away this past December. “I had this feeling Gilberto was looking over my shoulder, directing and encouraging me,” she says.

Show opens on February 2 with a reception from 1-4PM, and runs until the end of March at Artists & Artisans Gallery & Studio, 54 Bridge Street East, Belleville.
