Chapel Gallery is pleased to introduce you to six Canadian visual artists from the IMAGINE ARTWORKS collective: ANNE BOWEN, SUSAN GEDDES, BARB MACLEOD, MAUREEN NESS, KATHI THOMPSON and SHARON WAREING. This exhibition comes from their independent art practices and highlights some of their most recent work.
Despite working in separation, the artists have come together to explore a common theme. The exhibition imaginatively interprets the many Pathways taken individually. It is a celebration of the challenging, the joyful, the forks in the road and the ways forward.
Pathways includes the range of approaches within the group: from exuberant abstracts to narrative landscapes; detailed realism and contemporary impressionism. The work resonates with gestural mark-making, luxuriant colour and expansive light.
The artists that make up Imagine Artworks are distinctly different from each other. The difference lies both within the material substance and personal directions they use. What defines their convergence is a desire to investigate ideas and visual conversations.
