The Legal Information Centre in conjunction with Arteast is proud to present an exhibition of paintings by Rashmi Rekha. This solo show entitled, “The Kaleidoscope of Life” runs from October 28, 2016 – April 28,2017.

This show will present the beauty and magic of thinking of life as a kaleidoscope. Rashmi is passionate about exploring different perspectives on life and modern society and present them in colourful images on my canvas. She takes the images of today’s social and natural landscape and her personal experiences, the good, the bad, and even the ugly and shuffles the pieces together to create a visually appealing image using a wide range of colours, singularly unique and precious because we understand that the slightest shift can quickly change the picture. Each of these paintings will keep the viewer engaged. These paintings are in oil or acrylic mediums.

This is a unique opportunity for the public to enjoy, encourage and support local artists in their community as well as engaging with the Legal Information Centre.

Location : Legal Information Centre, 85 Albert St, 14th floor, Suite 1400.
Hours: Mon. afternoon, 1-4pm; Tues- Thurs. 10 – 4pm. Friday 10 – noon. Closed Sat.,Sunday.

4. Kerstin Peters at Luna Sole

Kerstin Peters is truly an all around artist, whether working in her studio on animal portraits or out with a plein air group enjoying the beautiful landscape. These plein air adventures have taken her all over Canada.

As a member of several art organizations, she exhibits her work regularly and “hopes to inspire others to find and express their own creativity”. Kerstin sees art as a ”means to relax, have fun, grow and connect with others through the process of creating”. She believes that “everyone can express themselves through art”. Acting on this belief, Kerstin offers courses, workshops and paint parties, working with both adults and children. 
Several of Kerstin’s landscapes are now on display at Luna Sole, along with three colourful pieces of her fiber art. The show will be on until December 6th
