Panel features local artists at Confederation Centre Art Gallery

January 6, 2012

(Charlottetown, PE, January 6, 2012) - Confederation Centre Art Gallery has shown an unprecedented number of P.E.I. artists this fall, including a solo show of work by the late painter and poet Elaine Harrison. To celebrate the Confederation Centre's reopening after winter break, the Art Gallery has invited a panel of Island artists to discuss their work Thursday evening, January 19th, at 7:00 PM. All three members of our Island artist panel currently have work on display in the galleries. Stephen B. MacInnis and Sarah Saunders are featured in the Assembly Lines exhibition, showing through March 4th, and Damien Worth's solo show Damien Worth: Painted Space is up through January 22nd.

"Aside from their Island backgrounds, Stephen MacInnis and Sarah Saunders have more in common than it might appear at first," says curator Pan Wendt, who will moderate the artist panel. "MacInnis is a painter, and Sarah Saunders a sculptor who works primarily with ceramics, but both artists share an interest in exploring process, and the stories that surround the making of the work. As for Damien Worth, he is a very articulate young artist, and I think audiences will be very interested to hear what went into his paintings, as well as his explorations of video game technology."

Part of the Confederation Centre Art Gallery's ongoing ArtTalk series, the event is free and open to the public, and begins at 7:00 PM. Refreshments are provided.
