7 Works Collective: Continuum

Spanish Guitar by Catherine Gutsche

Exhibition: April 10 – May 2, 2024
Opening Reception: Saturday, April 13, 2 – 4 p.m.

Continuum presents a visual journey of the 7 Works Collective artists. In this exhibition, Kathryn Bossy, Mario Cerroni, Lynn Dubinsky, Catherine Gutsche, Karen Mackay, Judi Miller and Jo-Ann Zorzi display works created from biweekly art prompt challenges. Using a variety of media including photography, mosaic, embroidery and mixed media, each artist creatively responded to 20 different prompts. They range from abstract themes such as “Finding Tranquility” and “Connections” to more representational ones including “Floral” and “Winter”.

The prompts were created to sustain the artists’ creative spirits during the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Through regular virtual meetings, the artists took turns to present their work and proposed a prompt to incite creative responses from the others. The outcome is the artworks presented in this exhibition – a rich tapestry of diverse artistic expressions, interwoven by a common thread of shared inspiration.
