Exhibition brings with it a sense of hope

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

The arrival of spring heralds many things: the end of winter gloom and the arrival of brighter days, a renewed sense of hope.

In the case of the Windjammer II Gallery, spring brings a fresh new window on the talents of many of Bermuda’s professional artists.

Springtime in Bermuda features textiles, oils, acrylics, pastels, hot wax painting, experimental art, watercolours and more.

Participating artists are Sharon Wilson, Stephen Card, Geralyn Counsell, Rhona Emmerson, Molly Godet, Sheilagh Head, Christina Hutchings, John Kaufmann, Lynn Morrell, Charles Zuill and Katherine Zuill.

Through their diverse eyes, viewers will enjoy fresh perspectives on land and scapes, working citizens, luscious fruit, colourful flora, and the beguiling blues of Bermuda’s waters.

Gallery owner and professional artist Sheilagh Head summed up the new exhibition as “a bright and happy show which reflects a celebration of the renewal of the Bermuda spirit, and a confirmation of what we feel about our beautiful little Island”.

“The show’s main thrust is its diversity, but within that diversity are works by artists who are knowledgeable about what they are doing,” she said. “In addition, many of them already have achieved international representation and recognition beyond Bermuda.”

Springtime in Bermuda continues through April 18. Gallery hours are 10am to 5pm Monday to Friday, and noon to 5pm Saturday and Sunday. Admission is free. For further information telephone 295-1783
