Urban Gallery presents Passages, solo exhibition by Chris Marin.
One brush stroke leads to the next. When I begin a non-objective painting, I do not know where I will go. It's a liberating, intuitive way to paint and to live. In Passages I invite the viewer to take his or her own steps through the paintings.
Artist bio: Chris Marin became intrigued by art after learning intuitive watercolour painting from Dorothy Clarke McClure in 1993. Over time, Chris expanded her interests to include collage, printmaking, acrylic painting, and applying transparent underglazes to her pottery.
One of her paintings is on the cover of What About My Kids?, a book written to help families coping with breast cancer. Chris's painting Home Again is the image in the Port Medway Lighthouse calendar for February 2018, and My Favourite Things was used for the IWK Children's Hospital Fundraising Raffle this year. She contributes regularly to the IWK and ElderDog shows, and her paintings can be seen at Riverbank, Mill Village, and The Port Grocer, Port Medway, Nova Scotia. They also hang in law offices and private collections.
Chris's story, The Edge of Risk is included in the book, Outside of Ordinary: Women's Travel Stories. And her Nova Scotia treetops studio was featured in the Spring 2009 issue of Studio Magazine.
The majority of Chris's paintings arise from the subconscious, whether she is pouring watercolours or sitting at her easel applying paint, simply responding to what she has just done with no end result in mind ... more

The Look of Things: Murray Favro & Keith Shearsby engage with the idea of usefulness, of functionality, and of value. As such, they complicate the curious relationship between art objects and working instruments, between artistic expression and tools. Each sculptural object in the exhibition can be — or once was — used in a purposeful way to manipulate the physical world as we know it, yet in the gallery it exists as an art object — not to be handled, touched, or manipulated. This is precisely where some of the work's tensions lie with intrigue; though, it does more than that — it also throws uncertainty at the ways in which we perceive and manipulate the tangible world around us, both physically and visually ... more
