Land Lines at the Scott Gallery
March 11 to April 1, 2017
Join us Saturday March 11 from 1 – 4 pm for the opening reception of Pamela Thurston’s latest exhibition Land Lines. The work in this exhibition is part of Thurston’s on-going exploration of paint, with the prairie landscape as her inspiration.
The title refers to the human traverse through a landscape that is prairie because it is agricultural too. Many of the paintings are of windbreaks, cut lines and small woodlands; vestiges or border areas of an older order of things.
“My paintings are the work of a dispassionate observer who has been struck in a moment of solitude by the awareness of connection. Influenced by my reverence for the natural world, by the love of form and subtlety of colour, I cling to realism with the clear understanding that the physical world holds mystery if only I remain still enough to feel it.” Pamela Thurston
