The Cannon Beach Gallery is proud to announce our May Flowers show. This art exhibition highlights spring and the magical cycle of nature’s rebirth. Artists Mary Lyn Gough, Dorota Haber – Lehigh, Mary Suzanne Garvey, and Lisa Sofia Robinson capture the fleeting charm of springtime with floral fantasies.
Mary Lyn Gough is an enthusiastic gardener and watercolor artist. Gough find the complexities in nature, the shapes, textures, colors, shapes, and patterns to be a source of inspiration. The close perspective of her work creates an immersive experience for the viewer. This collection of watercolors is luscious, inviting and vibrant – you might just have to stop and smell the roses. Dorota Haber – Lehigh holds a Diploma in Botanical Illustration from Society of Botanical Artists in UK, degrees in Art and International Studies with a focus on indigenous cultures, and a master’s degree in teaching. Born in Poland, Dorota’s love for nature began when as a child she accompanied her grandparents on mushroom hunting forays, spent hours in her parents and grandparents gardens, hiked summers in Tatra mountains and foraged for wild herbs and fruit. In her art she explores the idea of interconnectedness and fragility of our ecosystems, ecological diversity and species codependence. Mary Suzanne Garvey is an artist, massage therapist, craniosacral therapist, yoga instructor, meditation guide and art journal workshop facilitator. Mary believes in the healing power of the creative process and has devoted the past decade to painting and writing. Finding the transformational effect creativity can do wonders for the body and soul. Lisa Sofia Robinson is in constant search for the best way to interpret ideas of who she is and how she sees the world. Visual arts break through the boundary of words, creating a rich textural language of its own. Working in mixed media, collage and acrylic paint to create one-of-a-kind paintings.
