Art Colours Life: The Art of Barb Sohn

Meet the Artist at MERA on June 3rd
Art Colours Life: The Art of Barb Sohn

For the entire month of June, the art of Barb Sohn will be on display at the MERA Schoolhouse. You are invited to join us at MERA for the show’s opening event on Saturday June 3rd 2:00 to 4:00pm.

Barb has been painting most of her life while working full time as a social worker. When she retired in 2015, she began to paint full time after downsizing to a rural home near Perth, Ontario. She built a studio in the woods and began to explore painting in an in-depth way.

Barb’s paintings are inspired by local landscapes in Eastern Ontario “Working with acrylics on canvas, I paint the natural environment that surrounds me in Eastern Ontario where I live. My paintings reflect my fascination with the interaction between light, colour, pattern in water and landscape.  Because of the many layers of design in the transparency of water, the possibilities are endless. I work to capture these mesmerizing qualities with bold colour and solid design. My work is an ongoing process of discovery – starting with the observation of some aspect of the natural world that I bring to life through my personal interpretation and style.”

You are invited to join Barb at the MERA Schoolhouse in McDonald’s Corners (974 Dalhousie Concession 9A) on Saturday June 3rd from 2:00 to 4:00pm to meet the artist, view her works and purchase that “must have” piece.
