From February 20th to March 21st, experience the magnificence of winter through an exhibition of abstract winter landscapes by Leslie Beauchamp.
Leslie is an acrylic painter who expresses what most ignore. The feeling she wants to resonate with viewers of this show is that, “there is beauty in the bleak time between mid-November and mid-March” — a time when inhabitants of the northern landscape are thrown into the cold of winter and mid-afternoon darkness. NoRtH is a reflection of how even the dullest of seasons can evoke beauty and comfort. In Leslie’s own words, “As an abstract landscape artist, I find myself drawn to simplicity of line and shape; using hard edge and modified colours to reflect my vision.”
