Lorraine Roberts: Spring is Here , soft pastel

For Caledon artist, Lorraine Roberts, the theme for this show brought out her love of flowers. Says Roberts,”Flowers have been grown, cultivated and given as gifts for hundreds of years. They are symbols of heartfelt affection and love that are given on all occasions. My paintings display a gardener’s love of sharing the ephemeral beauty of flowers with any person passing by. This is a heartfelt act of giving without expecting anything in return.”

From the Heart opens on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2024 and runs until March 17, 2024.

Well known Dufferin artist and owner of Maggiolly Art Supplies in Orangeville and returning Headwaters Arts member, Emilia Perri has two stunning, very large, acrylic on canvas artworks that are all about love.
Says Emilia, “My painting called, Lacrime d’Amore or Love Tears is about the sorrow one feels when love is lost, there is the raining of tears that come and go, it doesn’t matter how much time passes, the feelings from the background can come to the foreground at any given time.”

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.
