Painting the Ontario Landscape

The Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre is preparing for the art exhibition featuring paintings by the late Jane Champagne, artist and long-time resident of Southampton.

This exquisite art exhibition features¬†acrylic and watercolour paintings, along with sketches and quotes from her book¬†‚ÄúPainting the Ontario Landscape‚ÄĚ.

Especially pleased to share this exhibit are Jane‚Äôs daughters Anne and Sophie, who¬†say ‚ÄúOur mother was a force of nature, Gaia personified! A fierce advocate for the¬†soul’s expression, she found her Source in the spirit of the land, and found in the land, her spiritual home. Her voice, in the written word, and her brush, birthing colour into¬†form, were her tools for calling us to preserve the land, and for calling us to express¬†our own soulfulness, the gift of Spirit that we all share. It is in the land that we come¬†to realize Inter-being, the fact that we are all connected, and it is from the land that¬†we learn to love Beauty and celebrate life, simply for being. It is our hope that this¬†exhibit will not only celebrate the life of one remarkable woman, but that it will¬†honour her gift to us, and inspire us to creativity, as well as to action, to preserve and¬†protect Gaia, the Spirit of the Land.‚ÄĚ

Enjoy an afternoon of art and light refreshments with the opening reception for¬†‚ÄúPainting the Ontario Landscape‚ÄĚ Saturday, January 12 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.,¬†the exhibition runs until April 30, 2019; all are welcome!
