Arbor Gallery: A show not to be missed

On May 3, Arbor Gallery Cultural Centre hosted a vernissage for artist Ian Griffiths. A newcomer to the Vankleek Hill area, Griffiths paints in a style known as “hyper-realism,” which results in paintings of such precise detail that one feels like one is looking at a photograph. But it his love of reflections that really attracted the attention and admiration of the small crowd of enthusiastic viewers.  The show, called “Resurfacing,” is a collection of paintings of toasters and coffee pots that become mirrors for the rooms and spaces around and behind them. His playful and creative nature also emerged strongly in his “anamorphic” coffee pot and numerous “sculptures” of toasters made out of a variety of new and salvaged materials.  The show continues until June 6 and will delight both adults and children. Griffiths will also be holding two workshops on May 12 and 19 from 1 to 4 p.m. to teach various painting techniques that he uses. For more information, or to register, please go to the Arbor Gallery website www.arborgallery.org . And, while you’re at the gallery, take some time to walk through the totally revamped Gift Shop which has been restocked with many items. The gallery, located at 36 Home Avenue in Vankleek Hill, is open Wednesday through Sunday, from 1-4 p.m.
