OSA Member Exhibition: Diana Harding-Tucker: The Natural Earth

Exhibition Invitation

I’m pleased to invite you to my upcoming exhibition opening, “The Natural Earth” on Sunday July 28, from 2-4 pm. The exhibition will be on display through to September 8, 2019 at The Gibson Centre, 63 Tupper Street West, Alliston, ON L9R 1E4

The Natural Earth – Opus I: Water is a celebration of water as the major tool in the shaping of life. Water contributes to the mechanical removal of soft and broken rocks and the scouring of ever deeper and wider lakes and rivers by glaciers. Plants and animal depend on clean, nourishing water for their livelihood. This exhibition also focuses on Water’s gift to the imagination through the play of light, shadow and reflection upon its surface – a gift that has inspired such artists as the painter Monet, and the pianist and composer, Claude Debussy.

The exhibition is open:
Tuesday to Saturday: 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
Sunday and Monday: closed
More information can also be found online at https://gibsoncentre.com/exhibitions/the-natural-earth-Jul-2019
Hope you can make it!
