Argyle Fine Art is very excited to be presenting artist Tanya Owen and her limited edition of hand hand painted cushions, featuring some of our most beloved local celebrities from the local broadcasting team at CTV. JOIN US FOR THE OPENING RECEPTION on SATURDAY, APRIL 12th, 1:30-3:30pm.
As many Atlantic
Canadians may remember, CTV used to be called ATV and was a main staple
amoung many of us growing up with TV as a main source of news and
entertainment. Whether it be a community news programs, such as LIVE AT
5-brought to popularity by the treasured local hero Dave Wright or the
News currently with Bruce Frisko, the weather with Cindy Day or even
beginning the holiday season with the Christmas Daddie's
Telethon...we've been watching.
Tanya's works celebrate these
great folks, who are not only local celebrities but more importantly
great citizens who love their community and give-back far beyond their
jobs behind the desk or in-front of the camera. They have
played an important role in making the watchers feel connected to their
province and even towards them- even though many of us have never met
them in person.
This show brings up interesting topics of how
we view community, celebrity, the influence of media to our daily lives
and more...ALL VERY SERIOUS topics of discussion but juxtaposed with
being depicted on a functional work of art. in the form of portraits of
these beloved individuals.
