Alison Storey, Helen LaRouche, and Juanita Glenn
Opening Reception May 29
On display until June 9 

This Art Exhibition is a visual journey of Three P.E.I. women that are close friends and have diverse backgrounds but similar interests. This Exhibition features over 75 chosen works that relate both directly to the Island and their own individual journey through life. They each have their own distinctive styles to convey their message to the viewers. Some artworks are scenes of the Island to interest tourists, some imaginative and dreamlike to interest the free thinker and some more realistic of life around them. The art works have been completed in the last three years and their goal in life is to inspire others.

Blast From the Past at the Guild

Medieval Times features over 40 pieces of original art by Alison Storey, based on detailed historical research of her birth county, Cumberland, in the North of England. Her love of this period of English history, whether from books, visiting castles, museums, or genealogical research has become a fundamental part of her life, just as art is her passion.

Despite its relative geographical and cultural isolation, Cumberland has provided a rich history for art expression in her chosen period of research; the turbulent ‘Middle Ages’, and, in particular, the period after the ‘Norman Conquest’ of 1066, AD, being able to draw inspiration from a wide variety of castles and ruined abbeys from this period, together with the portrayal of some of the often colorful people who occupied these castles, and their changing loyalties.

Her exhibition presents her interpretation of actual places and people, together with her personal ‘flights of fancy’ fueled by her research. The exhibition features a variety of mediums; collages, acrylics, woodcuts and collagraphs, together with an unusual printmaking process called ‘trace printing’.

Since arriving in Canada in 1971, Alison has been an artist for more than 40 years and has received numerous awards for her work. She has had many solo and juried exhibitions in both Canada and the USA, and since moving to PEI in 2011, she has been providing instruction in acrylic painting and drawing at the Seniors College, and also gives workshops in Printmaking to both children and adults.
