Artists on Elgin will be hosting an opening reception April 6 from 1-4 p.m., in honour of it's showcase artist for the month of April, Paddy O'Sullivan.
O'Sullivan's abstract exhibit will feature two new pieces by the Northern Ontario artist, the first in honour of jazz musician Miles Davis and the second, of Tragically Hip's late lead singer Gord Downey.
Described in a press release as being eclectic and intriguing, O'Sullivan's work features brilliant colours and interesting textures sure to bring out your creative side.
Northerner through and through, O'Sullivan was born in Timmins and moved to Sudbury in 1978, where he recieved a undergraduate and graduate degree from Laurentian University.
O'Sullivan said he believes art can help invigorate and support a more soulful environment in homes and workplaces, by inspiring people with visual arts that lifts their minds, hearts and spirits.
O'Sullivan's has been featured in both private and corporate collections in Scotland, France, Saudi Arabia, the United States and Canada.
Acting under the umbrella of the Northern Artist Gallery, Artists on Elgin is an attractive gallery storefront where artists are invited to exhibit, promote and sell their work.
By addressing the business and marketing needs of the local art industry, Artists on Elgin said it hopes to build mutually beneficial partnerships between the artists and the community.
