Cobalt Gallery, 870A Kingston Rd. presents Birds & Bloom, July 5 to August 26. It features the paintings of Micheline Beaulieau Marcotte and Louise St. Amour.
“Where else is nature so generous with colour but in the varied blooms that adorn fields and gardens alike?” asks Marcotte in her artist statement. “They are begging to be painted, and I feel compelled to oblige them.”
“I love painting birds because their antics make me laugh,” says St. Amour. “To me birds represent freedom, joy and strength.”
There will be an opening reception July 5, from 7 to 9 p.m. For more information call Cobalt Gallery at 416-694-0156, or visit cobaltgallery.ca.
