The work of Canadian abstract artists Angela Bontempo and Marianne Fowler will share space at 13th Street Gallery in St. Catharines during May.
Bontempo will be making her debut at the St. Catharines gallery with a new body of work pushing her colour palette and composition.
“My hope is that my art, if nothing else, allows you to feel something and is an invitation to escape and dive into your own imagination.”
Fowler explores pure abstraction and the conceptual form of painting in the postmodern age with her new works.
“Through the process of etching into the surface, deeper reflections of time can be considered,” she said. “This exhibition will exhibit both new and earlier paintings.”
Both artists will be at the gallery Saturday 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The gallery was opened three years ago by 13th Street Winery co-owner John Mann, who wanted his turn-of-the-century farmhouse to spotlight artwork alongside wine. After the first two years were curtailed by the pandemic, the gallery is back to showing contemporary Canadian works in a series of changing exhibitions.
Among the collection are works by Harold Town, Rita Letendre and Jean-Paul Riopelle.
