New Paintings by Jennifer Lawton
May 18 – June 23, 2018
Opening Reception: Thursday, May 23, 7 – 9 pm
Sponsored by Bajic Denture clinic, spring into spring by visiting Jennifer Lawton’s exhibition of paintings depicting large, bold botanicals that honour the wonders of science and all those practitioneers who have studied the structure and beauty of flora before her. Documenting the fleeting colours, rhythmical lines and shapes of flowers, each painting invites the audience to pause and reflect on what nature has to teach us and why the study of plants in all of their complexity and fragility still remains relevant today.

The communities of Midland, Penetanguishene, Tiny Township and Tay Township came together with Newfoundland film documentarian, Hugh Dimaline, in 2014 to capture the stories of people and places from North Simcoe in a DVD set for the community to share amongst themselves and with newcomers to the region. Four years in production, the resulting DVD entitled, “The Four Jewels of Georgian Bay” will be unveiled at a special evening which will bring together the over 100 people interviewed for this project.
