About

Five artists, five elements, five media. Gary Foidart, Gayle Halliwell, Moray McVey, Rosemary Miguez and Stephanie Sutton chose harmony as their theme. They fired pottery, electrocuted wood, sculptured sand, shot panoramas, and liquified pigments to produce their works. Their exploration of harmony--within, with each other, and with our environment--is their response to the world we find ourselves in today. The show runs through Culture Days in the temporary exhibit space at the New Iceland Heritage Museum. A special meet-the-artists will be held on September 17 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm. Other free events are planned for Culture Days (see separate descriptions at this venue) when artists will be available to discuss the meanings and methods used to produce their works. The show closes on October 29 at 3 pm.

Organizer

New Iceland Heritage Museum & Independent Artists

The New Iceland Heritage Museum (NIHM) greets visitors from around the world year round, seven days a week, at its main multi-media location in the The Waterfront Centre.

Through the presentation of dynamic permanent exhibits, temporary and traveling exhibits, and through a variety of workshops, lectures and programs the New Iceland Heritage Museum (NIHM) strives to serve the public as a valuable community resource that meets the increasing needs of new audiences and that presents relevant topics and issues in a rapidly changing world.

Five independent artists have joined together with the NIHM to present their works within the theme of harmony. Artists Gary Foidart, Gayle Halliwell, Moray McVey, Rosemary Miguez and Stephanie Sutton have created a show that invites the viewer to explore their use of five different media to focus on the five elements of harmony.
