Beauty in the Lines at Cranbrook Arts in June
June’s show is sure to be spectacular. Our feature artist is Laila Jensen and her show is called “The Beauty in the Lines.”
Laila is a mixed media artist and a member of the Federation of Artists and has studied at ACAD and Emily Carr University.
This show has been an exploration of lines that are part of her visual language. Her work highlights an interesting play between positive and negative spaces using lines that are subtle, bold, blended or broken. She uses acrylic paint paired with papers, metallic leaf, pastes, threads and inks. Her work reflects her ongoing love of tree bark, aspens, fanciful flowers, birds and paper.
Make sure to catch this show. It runs from June 4 to June 29. The opening reception will be on Saturday, June 8 from 1-3 p.m. at Cranbrook Arts 1013 Baker Street.
There is still some room left in the Plein Air Workshop on June 7 and 8 with Lynne Grillmair.
The Level 2 Taking the Intimidation out of Watercolour Workshop with Rebecca Bornhauser on June 22 is filling up fast so be sure to register for those. You can find out all the information on both Workshops at Cranbrook Arts on Facebook or @artscranbrook on Instagram.
