Collection of new oil paintings a culmination of artist’s long, dedicated practice

SACKVILLE, N.B. – Fog Forest Gallery is pleased to welcome Nova Scotia painter Susan Paterson back to the gallery for a solo exhibition, which will begin with an artist’s reception on Thursday, Oct. 11, from 6:30-8 p.m. All are welcome.

This collection of new oil paintings by Paterson is truly a culmination of her long and dedicated practice, her attention to detail and her love of painting.

“I recall in 2008, how Susan Paterson expressed to me her excitement to be attending a painting workshop at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston,” says Janet Crawford, owner of Fog Forest. "It would be a workshop in oil painting . . . the old master's techniques.

“Painting in oil would be a departure from her practice in watercolour and intaglio printmaking, and I was keen to see how she would respond to this new medium. I could not have predicted how perfectly suited this new approach to making art would be to Susan.”

Now, after 10 years of perfecting her technique, Paterson’s old-world still life paintings are highly sought after. Although she paints in a high realism style, her works are paintings in every sense.

This exhibition, consisting of 14 new oil paintings, will continue until Nov. 10, 2018.

For more information, visit the gallery’s website at fogforestgallery.ca or phone Crawford at 506-536-9000. Fog Forest Gallery is located at 14 Bridge Street in downtown Sackville.
