The Guardians is an exhibition by Janis Blyth and Marilyn Chapman. The Opening Reception is Tuesday, May 16th, 7-9 PM. The artists come together in this exhibition of abstract and semi-abstract work to imagine spiritual, sacred places. The Guardians transcends everyday stress and worry and takes our spirits on a journey to places of refuge where we can calm our souls, connect with the earth and find peace.
In this recent work, the artists blend a variety of mixed medium as they explore mythology and folklore, bringing forward the teachings and lessons from the stories of our past and connecting them to our modern day world. Their creations represent protectors of home and family, guardians of our earth and its people… spirits honouring the past and preserving the future.
“Art washes away from the soul, the dust of everyday life.”-Pablo Picasso
