The Latcham Gallery presents Losing Ground, a solo exhibition by painter Melissa Doherty
Thursday, August 29, 2019 from 7:00 - 9:00 pm
Playing with scale, perspective and the sculptural aspects of painting, Kitchener-Waterloo-based artist Melissa Doherty challenges our perceptions of both landscape and landscape painting. Her recent work examines the way natural elements are removed from the ground and displayed in containers and planters, on rooftops and green walls, to explore the facade and artifice in the constructed landscape. She considers how this positions the natural landscape as one step removed from the ground that sustains it, creating a veneer of landscape.
Refreshments will be served. Remarks at 7:30pm. Admission is free and all are welcome.

Joanne Rich is one of the York Region Arts Council's Artists in Residence! Her upcoming event, Floating Concert, Passages at Dusk, will be conducted in partnership with the Toronto Region Conservation Authority at Lake St. George.
Joanne Rich is an artist with a focus on sustainability, in which her backyard has become the source for her materials. Branches are used to form the skeleton for her lanterns, and plants used for papermaking are grown for their fibers. Joanne has won first place at Whitchurch-Stouffville Art in the Park. She has also won first place in 3D art from the South Simcoe Arts Council. Today with support from the Ontario Arts Council, she continues to teach papermaking and lantern making skills to students throughout Ontario.
Joanne will create a mystical floating concert as participants watch from the shore or from canoes.
