ST CATHARINES – 13th Street Gallery located at 13th Street Winery, 1776 Fourth Avenue in St. Catharines announces its new exhibition featuring two outstanding Canadian Abstract female artists Angela Bontempo and Marianne Fowler. Opening on Saturday May 6, 2023, all are invited between 2 and 5 p.m. to meet the artists. It will be Bontempo’s exhibition debut at 13th Street Gallery, her new body of work are rich with texture. Bontempo explains, “I was excited to push my boundaries as I explored my colour palette and composition. It takes courage to turn yourself inside out and show it to the world. My hope is that my art, if nothing else allows you to feel something and is an invitation to escape and dive into your own imagination.”
Marianne Fowler’s new paintings are a bold move outside her more neutral palette. Her works engages actively in a curious interchange between the past and the future of painting. There is an exploration between the origins of pure abstraction in modernism and the more conceptual forms of painting in the postmodern age. “Through the process of etching into the surface, deeper reflections of time can be considered,” explains the artist, “this exhibition will exhibit both new and earlier paintings.”
The exhibition will continue until Saturday April 29, 2023
