Visual Voice Fine Art gallery is proud to open its 2016 line-up with a solo show by Robert Rutherford. The exhibit entitled The Lost Art, refers to the practice of sketching on location and referring to those sketches and memory alone to create the final piece of art. The artist has adhered to this practice for over 30 years: "Several times each year, I pack my BMW motorcycle with camping gear and explore part of Atlantic Canada. When a good subject shows up, I find a quiet hill and draw for two or three hours. No photographs."
Featuring 15 new works, both paintings and silkscreens, of serene interior scenes and exterior landscapes, which are distinctively Robert Rutherford, "Now that devices allow anybody to make copies, drawing the landscape is meditation. Perhaps the future of art is painting from memory."
Visual Voice Fine Art from April 4th to April 30th, on Mondays, Wednesdays, Friays, and Saturdays 12:30 to 5:00 pm to view Robert Rutherford's poetic Maritimes.
