Rust in the Blood Exhibition

April 02, 2015  •  1 Comment

From the 28th March to  the 19th of April, the Montreal Goldfield Heritage Centre on the Wallaga Lake Road, Beauty Point is hosting its first, and planned to be, of many exhibitions. Tina and I were delighted to be invited to the official opening last Sunday and the venue was a really pleasant surprise. Bright and airy and far more spacious than I'd expected. We'd done the goldfields tour several times over the years. Its on our must do list for visitors but this was our first inside the relatively new building.

The Artist represented are Bill Shaw and his daughter Leslie, ably assisted by Leslie's husband Gary Monahan, a photographer friend of mine for many years. Bill works with metal and taught his daughter the mechanics of the processes involved. The artistic inspiration is innate in both artists and comes out, not just in Leslie's metal sculptures but in her Fine Art Photography which adorns the walls of the gallery.

I heartily recommend a visit to the Goldfields whilst this exhibition is on. As you can see from the pictures here and in my gallery of pictures of the day it was well attended and I noticed the treasurer being kept busy so you might want to take your cheque book with you.
