Shiny Abstractions

Hatch Gallery presents works by Henry Saxe & Kimberly Danielson in Shiny Abstractions from June 6 to July 7. Montreal born sculptor and member of the Order of Canada, Henry Saxe will present a series of sculpted spheres that reflect a tension between the enclosure of the whole structure and the relative freedom of motion of the individual components. This exhibition will also celebrate beautifully textured paintings by emerging artist, Kimberly Danielson.

Hatch Gallery is excited to welcome you (from a safe distance), but visiting will be a little different now. These preventative measures are to help ensure the safety of their staff, clients and the PEC community in general.

1. A maximum of four clients will be able to come into the art gallery at one time.
2. For those who prefer a private experience, please book an appointment: 416-522-0685.
3. Hand sanitizer will be provided and must be applied to your hands upon entry.
4. You must be wearing a disposable or fabric face mask to enter the gallery.

Hatch Gallery is located at 8 Stanley Street, Bloomfield.

Looking Out – Looking Up

Multi-disciplinary artist Nella Casson hopes to inspire feelings of joy and encouragement with her art installation titled Looking Out – Looking Up. The large dioramas created for storefront windows are based on the theme of the end of isolation, incorporating sketches and embroidered pieces created during the recent times of lockdown. She uses embroidery, textiles, cardboard and wood to create a view into a colourful mini-world, reminding the viewer of more joyful times to come.

See the installation at Books & Company until July 31 at 289 Main Street, Picton. Nella hopes the piece will move around to other storefront window locations during the month of August and September.

This project was supported with a Prince Edward County Arts Council public art grant.
