Healing Garden by Julia Nygra
Dates: Thursday, November 30 – Tuesday, January 9
Opening Reception: Thursday, November 30 from 7-9 pm
Healing gardens are universally known to have therapeutic and healing properties. They provide a calming oasis for those visiting or working in them. Having such a mental health break is fundamental in the health of today’s hectic society. A healing garden is reflective of the efforts of Victim Services Workers who strive to empower people in their transition from trauma to healing. This exhibition acknowledges the work of Victim Services and supports the RCMP’s “Cops for Cancer Research” campaign. Seventy percent of all sale proceeds will be donated to this worthy cause. The artist invites you to visit the Gallery often, as the exhibit will evolve and change throughout much like a garden would.
Previous Exhibition: Zhanna Shomakhova
A series of artworks under the title Motion is inspired by continuous and infinite process of movement in nature. Everything we see, everything that surrounds us is in constant motion. We cannot influence it, stop it, or change it; it is out of our control. Without a beginning or an end, this process is outside of notions of time and space, it is all around and universal. Random or predictable, orderly or chaotic, the process of motion is an integral part of nature’s beauty. The submitted artworks explore the beauty of the universe in constant motion: its form, balance, symmetry, rhythm, and colour.
Dates: Thursday, October 5 – Tuesday, November 28
