BALL PEOPLE ARRIVE IN PORT PERRY JUNE 1st
THE BALL PEOPLE, a sculpture series by Erika Takacs, invites visitors to experience a whimsical journey into imagination, fantasy and alternative reality. In this exhibit, the artist explores a fantasy world without rules, obligations or expectations. It is sure to delight the eye. You can peek into this reality during June at the Scugog Council for the Arts Gallery, 181 Perry Street, Unit G-1, Port Perry.
Influenced by her upbringing in old Europe and her education in Toronto, Erika creates figures that do not belong to any specific time or place, yet aim to tell stories that are universally recognizable. You might find yourself identifying with these fictional, individualist characters who playfully remind us of our uniqueness through their composition, mannerisms, and gestures. Erika aims to engage the viewer in a manner that is stimulating both emotionally and intellectually.
Erika Takacs is an Oshawa-based sculptor working primarily in paper pulp. It has become her material of choice due to its technically challenging and demanding nature that continually surprises her in its limitless versatility. Erika regularly participates in group shows across Durham Region, and has received numerous awards at various juried shows in the region. Her sculptures have also been exhibited in Toronto and Peterborough.
Come and see for yourself at the opening reception June 1, from 2 to 4 p.m. Light refreshments will be served. The exhibit continues Tuesday to Saturdays until June 29. Admission is free.
A RETROSPECTIVE OF PAMELA MEACHER'S work is in the Gallery until May 25. An interesting view of her growth as an artist with glimpses into her journey, moving from place to place. Copies of her award winning books, Emily's Enchanted Guardians and Emily's Perils and Poisons are on display and for sale as well. Many of you know Pamela's work, but may not realize her transition from through the years. This is a fine opportunity to get a deeper understanding of one of our Arts Professionals and now our Vice-Chair as well.
