BPSA art exhibit at Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre in tune with nature

Nestled in the heartland forest of the Bruce Peninsula, artistLin Souliere, in her studio Dragon Fly, is inspired by nature.

At the recent opening of the juried art exhibit, Escarpment Roots: The Land, The People, The Story, hosted by the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre in Southampton and the Bruce Peninsula Society of Artists (BPSA), several artists’ works were honoured.

Celebrating art inspired by the Niagara Escarpment, artist Lin Souliere won two awards.

Her painting the Blue Rock won for ‘Best Painting’ and her tapestry, ‘A Walk in the Woods to Listen to the Trees’ also won.  It is evident from her work that nature plays an integral role in her creations.

“For my tapestries, I use only DMC yarns from France,” says Souliere. “The colours are vibrant and have a rich quality.”  DMC yarns and threads date back to the 1700s in Mulhouse, France.

Also at the recent art exhibit opening, several additional awards were also presented.
