The new year is a time for renewal and the opportunity to ‘turn over a new leaf’ so the saying goes and Headwaters Arts is excited to present its first member art show of 2023
showcasing an impressive exhibition of bold and beautiful works by 21 artists visually depicting  their personal promises of new adventures, breaking free and moving forward.

Participating member artists include: Agnes Bellegris, Alina Lloyd, Anita Pietras, Anne Schnurr, Carol-Ann Michaelson, Christine Schubert, Deborah Powell, Hildegarde Sausik, Jason Misurka, Jodie Willis, Julie Park, Laurie Lamb, Lynn Gilbank, Marnie Cooke, Melissa Kristensen-Smith, Nancy MacNabb, Nonie Dauphinais, Patty Maher, Susan Powell, Vanessa Hertzberg and Vanessa Sica.

The over 25 selected pieces created include works in a variety of mediums: oil, watercolour and acrylic paintings,
photography, soft pastels, textiles and mixed/multi media.

Jason Misurka, an emerging Canadian abstract artist from Mississauga says,” My paintings intuitively engage the subconscious mind and dreamlike state capturing moments frozen in time and space. I use a combination of layering translucent bold colour palettes while manipulating abstracted shapes and forms to evoke the senses with energy, flow of movement and joy.” . Jason uses air brush, hand painting and acrylic markers.

Melissa Kristensen-Smith is a photographer from Kitchener says this about her photograph on exhibit, “Women everywhere present themselves in different ways to the world. What they feel on the inside can be quite different. In the double exposure image, I try to reflect these inner feelings. All nudes were shot in studio in black and white then double exposed digitally.

Nonie Dauphinais from Aurora paints fluid art or paint pouring using acrylics. Her piece entitled, “Promise of Spring”, reflects the first outburst of colour in her garden each year. An avid gardener, Nonie explains, “Fluid art has been an exciting and adventurous discovery. The process can be spontaneous or orchestrated by technique. It allows me to paint outside of the lines. The colours and techniques that I use infer my personal attachment to nature.

Meet the artists at the official Opening Reception to be held on Saturday, January 14, 2023 from 1-3 pm at the Headwaters Gallery in the Alton Mill Arts Centre, Alton, Ontario.

We acknowledge that the land on which we gather, and on which the Region of Peel operates, is part of the Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. For thousands of years, Indigenous peoples inhabited and cared for this land. In particular we acknowledge the territory of the Ani-shinabek, Huron-Wendat, Haudenosaunee and Ojibway/Chippewa peoples; the land that is home to the Metis; and most recently, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation who are direct descendants of the Mississaugas of the Credit.

We are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land, and by doing so, give our respect to its first inhabitants.
