New Art at the Watermark Art Gallery

The Watermark Art Gallery is a fine art gallery exhibiting original art created by local artists in the lobby of the Watermark Theatre in North Rustico. Curated by Mary Roscoe Murphy Robertson, the 2016 Season includes artists Donald Andrus, Bill Hodgson and Mary Roscoe Murphy Robertson.

Donald Andrus is a painter who lives in Flat River and exhibits across the Atlantic region. His work is part of collections around the world including Texas, Japan and Taiwan.

A few words from Mr. Andrus – “…I want the viewer to be as intimately involved as possible with the paintings; through reflection, through absorption, through the use of repetition and through a concern for Beauty.”

Bill Hodgson is a metal sculptor who lives in Harrington and his work can be found across Canada with major public art installations in London, Ontario.

A few words from Mr. Hodgson – “With a conceptual approach, I try to involve the viewer in a way that is sometimes physical and I believe in the idea of function following form in a work.”

Mary Roscoe Murphy Robertson is a painter who lives part time in Quebec City, and part-time in PEI. Mary exhibits her work primarily in Quebec City, Montreal and PEI.

A few words from Ms. Robertson “The goal of my work is to explore and give voice to the contrasting and complementary textures, colours, compositions and rhythms of my environment. Since 2002, I have researched the use of acrylic sheet (Plexiglass) as a surface for my work and I continue to experiment with this medium.”

The Gallery opens June 28th and is open daily and scheduled around our theatre performances. A Gallery Reception will be held on July 12th from 2PM to 4PM.
