This exhibition entitled “into the Light,” is a two person show bringing together artists Lisa Free and Tammy Shane.  Working in two different styles, this artist pairing will be a refreshing display of work not to be missed!

Lisa Free is a Canadian artist known for her loosely rendered sparkling waterscapes and elegant tonal interiors.

Free’s work is rooted in her strong connection with the 1000 Islands region of Canada, drawing inspiration from the shimmering St. Lawrence River, windswept island pines, and historic castle interiors. Free works with an intuitive colour palette and gestural paint application, attempting to convey her subject with minimal strokes. The resulting paintings portray the essence of her subjects, while radiating warmth and familiarity.

Following a 15 year career in theatrical costume design and work as a commercial textile artist, Free turned her focus to painting full time, and quickly gained a following of dedicated collectors. Free has exhibited in established exhibitions and galleries since 2010, and her work is collected in Canada, the United States, and Europe.

Tammy Shane is also a Canadian painter.  Inside her cozy Kingston, Ontario studio, Tammy works in acrylic on canvas. She is a contemporary realist painter with a passion for painting from nature.  Her creations range from landscapes with turbulent skies, to songbirds and owls. With a strong background in illustration, each piece has its own personality, often presenting a whimsical interpretation of her subject matter. Mood is so important in all of her work and clouds are an essential starting point.  Their forms are constantly changing as a reaction to their environment, and by adding simple linear shapes like telephone poles and power lines, this adds a contemporary human element to each piece. 

Recognized by the Ontario Arts Council, Tammy’s work is currently on view in Quebec, Kingston, and Manitoulin Island Galleries. She will be a feature artist in the upcoming Spring/Summer 10th Anniversary Edition of Arabella Magazine and has exhibited in various well known art shows and competitions throughout her career eleven year career.
