Opening reception for the exhibition "Ross Melanson: Life Drawings". This series of poignant drawings in their simplistic elegance presents visual meditations by local, Moose Jaw artist, Ross Melanson. Reflective of his signature approach of working with a continuous line, Melanson offers poetic compositions of isolated and overlapping biological forms as a means of processing and facing his cancer illness and its treatment, while becoming present in the moment to embrace life in all its wonder and constant change.
