The Edge Gallery:  Healing Elements - Roxane Nauboris, Kathleen Shellrude, Maria Epp, Nicholas Ahrens-Townsend, September 7 - 19

Four artists reconnect, using the magic of the natural world and its elements to explore what it means to really heal"

Roxane Nauboris, Kathleen Shellrude, Maria Epp, and Nicholas Ahrens-Townsend were first brought together in 2017 while completing residencies at Art Beat. The group is reconnecting again this September to bring you Healing Elements.

The title speaks to the inner work each has done in their quest to find balance in their lives. The 4 traditional and non-traditional elements inform each piece. The artists felt much renewal could be drawn from these energies and created art as a group under this overarching theme.

With over one hundred pieces of art, the show is as varied as the paths toward wellness are. This group of artists has cultivated their best to show how greater, holistic healing can be drawn from the natural elements of the universe.
Healing Elements runs September 7th through 19th at The Edge Gallery & Urban Art Centre at 611 Main Street.

Opening night, September 7th, 7 p.m. to 10 p.m., will have live music by Anass Sebbahi and Nicholas Horyski, appetizers and a cash bar.

Friday, September 14th, 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. all four artists will be in attendance speaking about their inspirations and processes, followed by an informal question and answer.
