Two blue & green pastel paintings, with exhibit details in text

In this exhibit by Jane Gateson, eleven paintings tell the whimsical and allegorical story of a little house as it grows up and journeys through life. Eleven matching abstract paintings reveal the inner life of the house.

Included in this exhibit are large abstracts exploring the eight decades of a life and also buildings with stories to tell.

Eighty small works depicting everyday objects are part of the show. These small building blocks, done in cold wax and oil, reference some of the bits and pieces that a life might contain. And eleven mixed media fabric collages repeat the story in another way.

Jane Gateson has been painting since the mid 80s and has studios in Winnipeg and Victoria Beach, MB. She has exhibited in numerous juried local and international shows. Her work is in private collections in Canada and Europe. See her website
