Terry Drahos Exhibition Opens at Hardware Gallery in Kentville
Hardware Gallery’s second exhibition this season, titled My North American Home, features the work of celebrated Wolfville artist and arts educator Terry Drahos. Running from April 27 to May 30, the show presents her body of work inspired by architecture. Terry uses bold colours and shapes reminiscent of both rural and urban constructions, rendered into abstraction.
Drahos is passionately engaged with the practice of painting. Her use of colour is sophisticated: rich darks and somber, murky hues act as foils for bold primaries and other luminous colours. My North American Home explores the question, “where are you from?” Drahos presents her work through her personal history, chronicling each house she has lived in from birth to the present day.
“Terry is a talented and accomplished local artist and we are extremely pleased to have her work at Hardware Gallery this season”, comments gallery director, Sasha Nelson. “In addition, her work in art education and introducing art to young people is completely consistent with, and supportive of, Hardware Gallery’s objectives.” An opening event will be held Thursday May 3 at the Gallery.
Hardware Gallery will also be presenting its first workshop in May. YogaArt is a yoga and drawing workshop for middle school girls. Given in partnership with the Town of Kentville, YogArt starts May 10. For more information go to kentville.ca/recreation.
Hardware Gallery is located at 36 Cornwallis Street Kentville, and is run by the Kentville Art Gallery Society (KAGS). Find Hardware Gallery at hardwaregallery.ca or on Facebook.
