Sir Wilfred Grenfell College Art Gallery presents an exhibition
of Anne Meredith Barrys Gros Morne Journals and Translations.
In 1998 and the following summer of 1999, Anne Meredith Barry
had the opportunity to work as artist-in-residence at Canadas
newest UNESCO Heritage Site, Gros Morne National Park, on the
West Coast of Newfoundland. The exhibition records her response
to the biology, geology and history of this magnificent region
and examines the paper trail of one artists
creative process. This exhibition is both documentation of the
profound effect a new environment can have on an artist and an
exuberant tribute to the Gros Morne landscape. It includes paintings,
original prints, mixed media drawings, collage, and bookworks
and will be accompanied by a publication with text by award-winning
author, Kevin Major. The exhibition runs until Sept. 15. Gallery
hours are: Monday to Saturday, 11 to 5 p.m.
