Winchester Galleries is pleased to announce the exhibition This Time, This Place celebrating the arrival of autumn. This exhibition presents the works of the local artist, Lesley Finlayson. This body of work is an ongoing dialogue with Vancouver Island’s natural environment, through the continuum of exploring, walking, drawing, and accumulating memories.
In her Victoria studio, she progresses to working on a series of paintings, distilling and editing her collected and remembered information, which allows for the work to become more suggestive of revisited experiences of moments in time.
Born in Scotland, Lesley Finlayson graduated with Honours from the Glasgow School of Art, Glasgow, and received her Master of Fine Art from the University of Calgary, Calgary AB. She has received numerous grants and awards including the Elizabeth Greenshields Scholarship in 1983. She is the former Department Chair and Instructor, Fine Arts, at Langara College in Vancouver, BC, and is now a full-time painter.
Lesley Finlayson has had numerous solo exhibitions in Canada and the United Kingdom. Her work is included in corporate and private collections in North America and abroad.
