Hello everyone! We are so excited to tell you about our latest show at the Drawing Room. Until December 11th, we are showcasing recent work by Ann Metheun-Hall, a prolific painter based out of Chrysalis Creative Arts Studio. We were drawn in by Ann’s use of bright colours and unique renderings of people, places and inanimate objects. Ann’s artwork usually tells a story or a “scene” from her life, a visual memory of a moment in time. Her work is personally meaningful and a vehicle for connecting with others.
Ann loves to talk about what she is painting, and the subjects of her work are carefully thought out. Ranging from abstract to realistic, her strength as an artist is in her ability to use line, pattern and colour to create vibrant, multi-textured canvases. She chooses the colour palette carefully for each painting, and likes to emphasize pattern and line in her work. Her drawing style tends to flatten the image so there is minimal depth or perspective.
For over 6 years she has been working tirelessly on her drawing and painting skills. She has participated in shows for The Works Festival and the Edmonton International Airport and exhibited for seven years at the Chrysalis Annual Art Show!
"In 2015, Ann started experimenting with clay sculpture and photography. Many of her photographs have been very popular at the Annual Art Show. Ann is also a talented dancer, singer and actor. She belongs to the Musical Theatre group, Drama group, Music group and participates in the Drumming program," says Carmella Haykowski, Artist and Facilitator at Chrysalis Creative Studio.
Please join Ann Methuen-Hall to celebrate the opening of her show at the Drawing Room! A public reception will be held on November 27 from 1 pm to 5 pm. Raise a glass to Ann and support her awesome passion for painting and making art. Paintings available for purchase and 100% of proceeds will go directly to the artist.
The paintings will be on view until December 11th during gallery hours between 2 p.m. - 7 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday.
