Marianne Harris artwork to be exhibited at Gallery on Main
Watercolour landscapes and other artworks by Marianne Harris are being exhibited at the Gallery on Main in Lacombe.
The Red Deer artist is primarily known for her realistic renderings of nature and children, but has lately been experimenting with impressionistic street scenes and other works in acrylic and mixed media.
The Edmonton-born Harris, who runs workshops from her Paintwerx Studios, has exhibited paintings and photographs in various art shows and galleries.
She’s been inspired by her travels and children, which “have given rise to my favourite subject — people and their activities. . . . People are always fascinating subjects the world over, and I strive to tell their story and emotions with paint on paper.”
A wine and cheese opening reception will be held at the gallery from 5 to 8 p.m. on Saturday.
The show runs to Feb. 15.
