Private Spaces art show opening in Truro

Arts & Entertainment Online First

Truro, NS. Saturday, Apr 4, 2020  –  Visual Voice Fine Art gallery

Visual Voice Fine Art will reopen for 2020 with Private Spaces, a show of new artworks by Rosemary Clarke Young and Kit Clarke.

“We hope the virus doesn’t curtain people’s enjoyment of this great exhibit, this is the culmination of a year of work for these two artist,” says gallery owner Nuri Guerra.

“We are doing everything we can to follow the province’s measures, and like other galleries we are attempting to support our artists during this difficult time.”

This is the first joint show for the artists and sisters, who until now have only exhibited together at group shows. Growing up they were both strongly influenced and inspired by their mother, also an artist and a draughtsman. Though they had this same departure point, their careers in the art world diverged taking them in different paths, now coming full circle and uniting again. Common themes in their work are intimate interiors and landscapes, even though their approach and media choices differ. Young’s current work is predominantly watercolour batik on rice paper, and Clarke’s recent work is acrylic on translucent vellum paper and mixed media.

See the exhibit from April 4 to May 2 at regular gallery hours: Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 12:30 to 5 p.m.

 “If you can’t visit us in person, please follow us on where you can see one painting in the show each day. And don’t forget to send your kudos to the artists!”

The Downtown Truro Partnership is helping with free delivery to Colchester, East Hants and Pictou counties for anyone who purchases a piece.
