With support from the ARTicipate Endowment Fund and the Ontario Arts Council, Arts Network Ottawa member Karen Goetzinger will present her solo exhibition, “Beauty in the Inconsequential” in the LaLande + Doyle Exhibition Space in the Shenkman Arts Centre from January 7 – 26, 2020.

This new collection of large scale abstract paintings captures often overlooked modest moments of beauty, revealed unexpectedly in the imperfect and the fleeting, but that nevertheless illuminate our humanity.

Each blank canvas allowed Karen to expressively explore colour and marks as a way to record, without figurative forms or literal references, the impressions and memories of a singular day or place in time. The abstract imagery allows you to connect with each piece in solitary exploration of the surface, giving you the opportunity to shift your thoughts from the daily barrage of your schedule to appreciating the simple beauty in each day just waiting to be discovered.

Please join Karen for the Meet the Artist Opening Reception on January 12, 2020 from 1-3 p.m. For more information : http://karengoetzinger.com/solo-exhibition/
