“Elemental” Art Exhibition by the Octarine Artists  at Joshua Creek Heritage Art Centre

For their third annual art exhibition, “Elemental”, the Octarine Women Artists’ Collective, a group of eight artists from Wellington County, are showing their work at Joshua Creek Heritage Art Centre in Oakville.
The eight artists work in a variety of different media and will be presenting new pieces in this show. Participating artists include Deborah Dryden (encaustic), Carol Hughes (watercolour), Kim Johnston (oils, watercolour and pastel), Mary Karavos (paper collage), Jean Loney (mosaic), Leslie Miles (soft pastels and mixed media), Gail Root (oils and chalk pastel) and Susan Strachan Johnson (altered photographs).
All are known for their interpretation of nature, responding differently to the colour and atmosphere of their natural environments.
There will be an opening reception, with artists present, on Sunday April 3, 2016 from 2:00 – 5:00 pm. The public is invited, and admission is by donation to the gallery.
After the success of their two previous shows in Guelph, the move to the spacious gallery in a renovated barn at Joshua Creek will allow for a longer period of five weeks for this year’s show. The exhibit runs from Friday April 1 to Sunday May 8, 2016.
Gallery hours are Tuesday – Sunday from 1:00 – 4:00 pm.  Joshua Creek Heritage Art Centre is located at 1086 Burnhamthorpe Road (1km east of Trafalgar), Oakville, Ontario.
