Outside the Lines

March 25 - May 10, 2015

Outside the Lines features new work by selected artists of the Southampton Art Gallery. This visiting show, curated by SAG Director April Patry, is the result of a challenge to the artists to push themselves beyond their familiar methods, to try different techniques and to expressly explore what is outside the lines of their comfort zone, creatively.

Elinor Holmes, Jenny Lee Learn, Pam McCowan,Mary R. Anderson, Ofra Svorai, Val Cargo, Susan Enzensberger, Peter John Reid, Peri Jolley, Kelly Maw, Bev Morgan, Margot Foster, and Louise Moore work in a variety of mediums and styles, each piece being as unique as the artist themselves.

“Our Gallery Artists are locally grown, dotting our region from Lions Head to Kimberley, Hanover to Kincardine, Owen Sound, Southampton, and everywhere in between,” says Patry. “A wide variety of mediums are represented at the SAG: limited edition photography, abstract monoprints, paper mache, wood carvings, acrylics on canvas, copper and clay sculptures, and the like. The Gallery is entering its 16th year of operation and is extremely proud of the calibre of work being produced by the 40 artists currently on the roster. Outside the Lines celebrates and acknowledges the artistic achievement of the individual artists and our gallery as a whole.”

April Patry has been a long time resident of the Bruce Peninsula. Being a 2nd generation potter for 16 years has provided rich soil for establishing her deep roots in the localart and fine craft scene. Visit the SAG website for more information: www.southamptonart.com
