SCUGOG: See what’s growing in the Kent Farndale Gallery next month!
Local watercolour artist Pamela Meacher is excited to present a solo art show featuring gorgeously detailed renditions of flowers, fairies, plants, leaves and all-manner of beautiful flora and fauna.
Titled ‘Radical Botanicals and More’ Ms. Meacher’s show will feature recent works, alongside her classic illustrations.
Regarding her latest work ‘The Resting Post’ Ms. Meacher said, “I’m taking a step back into my painting methods from 15 years ago - incorporating my tight and detailed style, within some of the more loose and open illustrations.”
Come and meet Ms. Meacher, her flowers, and her fairies during the grand opening reception at 2 p.m. on Nov. 1, taking place at the Kent Farndale Gallery inside the Scugog Memorial Public Library, 231 Water St.
A master painter and author, Ms. Meacher was exposed to the profound mysteries and beauty of the natural world as a child growing up in England.
Ms. Meacher’s botanical watercolours often include birds, butterflies and woodland sprites, which harkens back to the Victorian Arts and Crafts movement.
A board member for 10 years and one of the founding members of the Canadian Wildflower Society, she is also a member in good standing with The Botanical Artists of Canada.
Presently, Pamela is Vice President of The Scugog Council for the Arts and past Vice-Chair of the Public Arts Acquisitions Committee.
