NEW PAINTINGS BY LYNN WIGGINTON
 
Friday, June 8, 5 - 7 pm


COUNTRY
As an artist, Lynn's attraction to architectural forms is well known. Recent years have seen a shift to more natural themes. With this exhibition, Lynn continues her exploration of the Bay of Fundy and the river systems of southern New Brunswick. Shown to the left is Island in the Bay, a painting of Mahogany Island and its surround. This shift in content has invited a freer, more painterly style. Much of her recent work places a focus on the qualities of sky and light.

TOWN


Throughout her career, Lynn has continued to provide artistic documentation of Saint John's architectural heritage. The painting, Along Prince William, is a significant example of this aspect of her work. It highlights some of the finest samplings of the late 19th Century detailing on the City's commercial buildings. The backdrop of dark dramatic sky, coupled with the intensly warm light falling on the building facades further emphasizes the architectural detail.
