Current Exhibit in the Kent Farndale Gallery

Expand your artistic perspective and explore a rich culture with the new exhibit A Time Gone By” by artist Patrick Hickman. The Opening Reception will begin Saturday, September 12th, 2015 at 2pm. The show will run September 12th to October 15th in the Kent Farndale Gallery in the Scugog Memorial Public Library at 231 Water Street in Port Perry.

Born in Ireland, Patrick Hickman observed a lifestyle that was fast disappearing and tried to capture it in his work. His paintings depict images of people whose lives and families depended on the sea.

Hickman’s style borders on expressionism and uses bright colours to attract the viewer’s eye and breathe life into a forgotten culture.

The Kent Farndale Gallery is open 7 days a week during library hours. Please call 905-985-7686 for more information.
