Deanna Musgrave: Water Witness

The theme of celebrating and exploring water and weather has dominated the Saint John-based artist’s work for nearly 20 years. This new body of work uses a channelled language to give a voice to water, the sea, and the sky. When giving a voice to water, the artist highlights that water is a consciousness, thus bringing into question how we treat it and environmental concerns around it. This language is meant to be transpersonal so that it will connect with anyone and engage them with a unique message for each viewer.

Mimi Lucas: The weather was important.

In this series of artworks, the Saint John artist’s ultimate painting goals are to compose happy, yet serious and ambiguous work. This exhibition consists of small- and large-scale paintings that consider how our environment significantly controls our lives. With the current prevailing tendency toward extreme weather, our world has experienced diverse displays of excess rain and flooding, wildfires, hurricanes, and rising temperatures. Lucas’ paintings evoke rather than describe. They are presented in an abstracted landscape that is more a personal narrative than a perceived truth.
