Exhibit features painter Janis Eaglesham

The Mission Arts Centre is currently showing the work of artist Janis Eaglesham.

The Mission Arts Centre is currently showing the work of artist Janis Eaglesham. Last Saturday’s opening was a huge success with over fifty people in attendance.

Eaglesham’s painterly approach to the human form is reminiscent of turn-of-the-century masters. A wide array of subject matter in her show – from portraits and abstract landscapes to figurative and mixed media – showcase her amazing talent. She combines natural elements with an ethereal expression.

Eaglesham is an award-winning artist and the MAC is pleased to be able to showcase her work. Born and raised in Saskatchewan, Eaglesham now lives a quiet life on five wooded acres in Maple Ridge where she has her studio.

She expresses her love of nature through her landscapes, which invoke a sense of solitude, purity, and regeneration and are inspired by her memories of her childhood on the prairies and summers spent at Carlyle Lake.

Her acclaimed figurative work is rich, haunting and nostalgic and evokes a sense of peace and tranquility that stir the senses. Her female subjects capture a moment in the soul of a woman and convey confidence and self-awareness. The show will be on at the Rock Family Gallery located inside the Mission Arts Centre, at 33529 First Ave., until Sept. 15.
