Expressions from the Earth

2009-03-19, from Member
Sherbrooke – The Uplands Cultural and Heritage Centre is proud to present the exhibition, Expressions from the Earth, paintings and pottery by Ena Greyeyes and Paula Curphey. The public is invited to meet the artists at a vernissage from 2 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, March 29th at Uplands, 9 Speid Street in Sherbrooke.

As a painter, Ena Greyeyes works with simple tools; a hand-held, non electric saw, natural pigments, varnish and bee wax. Using her own technique she employs laminated wood to create powerful expressions or art. As an aboriginal artist, Ena’s heritage plays a very important role in the way she portrays her art. Her work depicts her deep spiritual connection to her ancestors and her love of nature. Animalistic forms and Native spirituality join together in vibrant colours to form a powerful, unified vision that is singularly her own.

Talented and accomplished artist Paula Curphey has been a studio potter for more than 30 years. Her varied repertoire includes anything from dishware to garden ware. Curphey explores both the functional and decorative avenues of her work and specializes in brush work, glaze-drying and wax resist. Paula draws inspiration for her work from Nature and diverse cultures.

Opening hours
Uplands is open Wednesday through Sunday from 1 to 4:30 p.m. The Centre is located at 9 Speid Street in the Borough of Lennoxville (Sherbrooke).

Expressions from the Earth will run until May 31st, 2009.
