‘Multiple Horizons’ by Kirk Sutherland – March 3rd to April 1st

Stretch your artistic perspective and explore the beauty of the abstract in the upcoming exhibit “Multiple Horizons” by Kirk Sutherland. The opening Reception will begin Saturday, March 3rd, 2018 at 2 pm. The show will run March 3rd – April 1st, 2018 in the Kent Farndale Gallery in the Scugog Memorial Public Library at 231 Water Street in Port Perry.

Kirk Sutherland has exhibited his work for over 25 years at many art galleries and many of his works are represented in both private and corporate collections throughout North America and Europe.

Critically, Kirk Sutherland could be defined as being influenced by Modernist painting, Abstract Expressionism, Post-Painterly Abstraction and Lyrical Abstraction. He is also acutely influenced, consciously and subconsciously, by his surroundings, the formal elements of art, and by the materials he chooses. The two predominant elements in Sutherland’s work are his keen colour sensibility and his use of space.

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