Unity in Diversity — works by Graham S. FowlerPosted: August 19, 2012

Graham Fowler is a visual artist working in watercolour and acrylic. His work reflects his introspective personality and his basic need for hands-on spontaneous creativity. Graham’s work is simply a reaction to the last brush stroke. There is no plan. It is a journey of reactive instinct.

He loves the completeness of the experience of painting. The white canvas awaiting. There is no sharing, no division of labour, no complex relationships to work out or endure. Just the canvas and the childlike unity of self with the task at hand.

Graham believes that we were created for works of senseless love and beauty. He believes that the arts, through maybe not essential to our survival, are essential to our humanity. Graham dreamed that in retirement he would make music and paint. Both these dreams are being realized.

Enjoy Grahams creative works of senseless love and beauty at the opening reception on Thursday, August 30 from 7-9 p.m. This opening will be an extra special event because of the addition of live music! Yolaine Hames, creator and director of the chamber orchestra in Fernie, and Gilles Hainault, accomplished composer, musician, and choral director, will be performing live at the opening reception.

For more information on Graham Fowler please visit http://www.grahamsfowler.org/. For more information on these fantastic classical musicians, Yolaine Hames and Gilles Hainault please visit http://www.idealsociety.org.

The exhibit continues until Tuesday, September 25.
