Nature's Teachings - New Paintings by Jennifer Lawton

May
18

Date: May 18, 2018

Location: 333 King Street, Midland, Ontario

Category: External Community Event

Opening Reception: Thursday, May 23, 7 - 9 pm Sponsored by Bajic Denture Clinic, Midland, Ontario, spring into spring by visiting Jennifer Lawton's exhibition of paintings depicting large, bold botanicals that honour the wonders of science and all those practitioneers who have studied the structure and beauty of flora before her. Documenting the fleeting colours, rhytmical lines and shapes of flowers, each painting invites the audience to pause and reflect on what nature has to teach us and why the study of plants in all of their complexity and fagility still remains relevant today.
