The Humboldt and District Gallery will be hosting two new exhibits from January 10 to February 23. 

Leslie Stadnichuk is an artist who paints florals and landscapes using mainly oils. Her exhibition is called “Forever” and features colourful floral paintings. As described in her Artist Statement, she uses her pieces to “capture the essence of her subject, bringing the viewer into the emotion which inspired the work.” She describes flowers as “an expression of care and concern to those we love in times of great joy or immense sorrow.”

Another exhibit taking place at the Gallery is “Remembered” by Kathleen Slavin. In her Artist Statement, Slavin describes “Remembered” as inspired by Sassi, an old town in southern Italy, which is “one of the oldest continuously inhabited places in the world. Homes and churches were formed by digging into the rock, and streets and dwellings were stacked upon each other.” She says her pieces “evoke the old-world Mediterranean feel of the area.”

A reception for Leslie and Kathleen will be at the Gallery on January 20 from 1:30 to 4:00 pm to discuss and celebrate their art. Refreshments will be provided at the free event.
