April Showers

According to the old saying...

“April showers bring May flowers” originated from a short poem written by Thomas Tusser in 1557. The meaning behind is that even the most unpleasant circumstances can bring enjoyable things.

ECCO Art Gallery Studios invites you to join in celebrating this most enjoyable collection of floral works of Apsley glass artist, Susan Rankin and Peer Christensen a fine art painter from Peterborough.

“The classical technique of building up successive opaque and transparent paint layers yields the luminosity that has come to define Christensen’s style.”

“As an avid gardener, Susan continues to explore the idea of garden through her vessel and sculptural works and is well know for her vibrant floral vessels.”

Also on exhibit at ECCO Art Gallery Studios are floral works from the gallery roster of local artists Rowena Dykins, Holly Edwards, Ann Shier, and Kay Gregg.

The exhibition will run from Thursday, March 21 through Sunday, April 21, 2024.
