“It speaks to a neighbourhood that has very deep roots… and I just felt like I wanted to capture that before it disappears.” – Shannon Harvey
“They just go for it, you ask what colour and they pick the brightest colour, and they just really go.”
“I do my work in order to help show my love for nature and for the things around me.”
“That’s what really inspires me, to have the viewer’s eyes dart around the canvas and really feel that sense of movement.”
The exhibit’s title, Jayeonmi, is the Korean word for natural beauty, which suits the multicultural, nature-themed exhibit.
The End of the Affair exhibit is named after one of Stefanie Denz’s personal paintings, “Tennis (The End of the Affair)” (2014).
