Artists explore change and beauty in Fort Gallery show

‘Fusion’ by Susan J. Falk and Marilyn Dyer runs May 2 to 27

Artists Susan J. Falk and Marilyn Dyer are combining efforts in a joint exhibition that explores the synthesis of change and beauty.

Fusion runs at The Fort Gallery May 2-27, and an opening reception is planned for Sunday, May 6 from 1 to 3 p.m.

Dyer’s images have focused on her passion for the Earth’s desire to be an integrated whole. As change reveals itself, Dyer looks for, and reveals, the beauty of the new forms, the integration of the organic and the geometric, and the fusion of the old and new coalitions.

Falk’s new paintings reference some of the finer things in life — flower gardens and fine china. She recently called on friends and family to send her their most coveted daily heirlooms as inspiration, which resulted in her teacup series.

Painted in Falk’s favourite rich pigments, each teacup and saucer is dramatically staged for the viewer to enjoy in a small 8” x 10” format. However, her show of works would not be complete without her usual large-scale format, so Falk has invited the public to enjoy her garden as she would — another finer thing in life — over the top and colourful in its full glory of blue lace delphiniums and wild foxglove.

The Fort Gallery, located at 9048 Glover Rd., is open Thursday to Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.
