Inner Workings

Inner Workings

Our current exhibition, Inner Workings, features artwork by 6 gallery artists; Leah Hicks, Guiseppe Martino, Karen Goetzinger, Marianne Nielsen, Alexandra Urosevic and Viviane Bergevin. An exploration of pure abstraction, each artist uniquely uses colour, form and movement as a personal expression. Some explore emotions, some their daily experiences and thoughts, and others focus on structure and design.

East Coast Heart by Jenn Thornhill Verma

East Coast Heart by Jenn Thornhill Verma

A heart poured onto the canvas—that’s the premise of Jenn Thornhill Verma’s latest collection. Reinvigorated by a long-awaited return home after pandemic lockdowns, Jenn’s contagiously happy palette and carefree coastal landscapes read like a breath of fresh air. Jenn often says she has an “Ottawa address and east coast heart.” If you too know the longing of home, or are simply moved by east coast scenery, then this collection is for you.  All but one of the works feature water reflections—a nod to how the artist felt after spending time in Newfoundland this summer and then Labrador this fall (“I...
