February Art Exhibition
Richard Hutton & Barb Sohn on Display at MERA
McDonalds Corners Elphin Recreation & Arts (MERA) is proud to have Richard Hutton & Barb Sohn for our February Art Exhibition in Dean Hall and this Saturday is an excellent opportunity to view their art when you visit the cafe.

Richard’s art is as multi-faceted as the man’s mind. In fact, the depth and breadth of the mind itself, and everything it conjures up in this world, is the constant underlying theme in all his works. The subject matter can be still and reflective, at other times turbulent or playful, but is always enquiring and often provocative. Richard is accomplished in acrylics, watercolour, drawing, and oils, but the latter remains a favourite. He prides himself in not being a slave to any particular style or technique.

Barb works with acrylics on canvas, she creates images from local areas such as Murphy’s Point Provincial Park, Lanark County, and from her recent trip to the Yukon. Her work is an ongoing process of discovery – that is, the observation of some aspect of nature that she has noticed and brought to life through her interpretation. Please visit her website at
