The Gallery is pleased to welcome international artists Verena Mayer-Kolbinger and Manjeet Shergill, along with local talent Tracy-Lynn Chisholm, in their exhibition Alchemy of Life.  Running from July 13th through September 2nd, the exhibition showcases the distinctive style and individual journey of each artist as they consider the magic of life and the transformative power of art.

Celebrating cultural backgrounds and unique creative processes, Alchemy of Life features the dynamic abstracts of Verena Mayer-Kolbinger (Germany), the contemplative portraits and serene still life subjects of Manjeet Shergill (Singapore) alongside the mystical dreamscapes and whimsical sculptures of Tracy-Lynn Chisholm (Cornwall).

“The universal language of art transcends borders and cultural boundaries. We are thrilled to bring together this incredibly talented trio of artists”, said gallery coordinator Emily MacLeod. “Alchemists, like artists, create things that never existed before. When they look to the future, they see magic and possibilities. They lose themselves in the process of creating and within that exchange their energy is alchemized, and the art is what emerges”.

Admission is free,  all art enthusiasts and interested community members are encouraged to experience this celebration of local and global artistic talent.

Visitors are invited to join the opening reception July 13, 2023 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM at the Cline House Gallery located at 204 Second St. E.  This special event will allow an opportunity to meet the artists, delve into their creative processes and engage in conversation about the works on display.
