RiverBrink Art Museum continues to spotlight and celebrate the talents of Niagara artists by hosting Janny Fraser and Leah Feor as they demonstrate their expertise at the museum on Saturday, December 15 between 1:30 and 3:30. Admission to the museum and its exhibitions are free on December 15. Refreshments will be available during the demonstration.
Janny Fraser is a graduate of the Ontario College of Art in Drawing and Painting/Printmaking. She expanded her activities into mixed-media installations. She is currently working on a series entitled “Time Images” using assemblage and clay. These works can be seen at the Jordan Gallery in the village of Jordan, Ontario. Her gift shop items include jewelry that reflects the diversity of her work and interest in 3-dimensional form. She will be sculpting her porcelain face pins, pendants and small bowls on December 15.
Leah Feor is an Artisan dedicated to creating unique jewelry. Inspired by Latin America travel, Leah has adopted traditional styles using macrame and silversmithing techniques. Her materials of choice are primarily natural and of quality using silver and semi-precious stones. Her pieces vary greatly yet contain a common element of signature designs. Mother Nature is pure inspiration for this Niagara native, no matter where she is on the globe. Leah will be demonstrating both of her techniques by making a beautiful necklace right before your eyes!
Both artists will have their work for sale in the RiverBrink Art Museum Gift Shop. Located at the museum entrance, the Gift Shop acts as a revenue generator for the museum and a creative venue for Niagara painters and artisans. All funds generated by the Gift Shop directly support the development of the museum, its programs and exhibitions.
