Artist Maria Guevara's works will be on display through October at Sunbury Shores as part of her exhibit, Still Here: A Bird Catalogue in Clay. From Maria: "In my six years as an independent artist, I have emphasized carved decoration on porcelain surfaces. I have experimented extensively with Sgraffito, a technique in which I carve into dark-coloured surfaces.
Recently, I have integrated birds of New Brunswick in my decorative work. I visit natural areas to observe the birds in their natural habitats. My new interest led me to investigate bird anatomy, flying styles, and plumage coloration. I discovered that several of my favourite birds are listed as species threatened or at risk of extinction."

Anne will be at the Eastport Gallery at 109 Water St. on September 19th and 26th and October 2nd from 11 am - 5 pm to answer questions about her art. The Gallery will be open Wednesdy-Sunday through October 3rd.
Anne explains the inspiration for her show: "I am drawn to many art mediums, including photography, painting, and mixed media. Inspired by changing light and atmosphere in both nature and urban settings, I take special delight in unexpected vantage points, reflections, abstraction, complex layering, intuitive mark-making, vivid color, and texture. My recent work merges photography, drawing, and painting into layered digital works. I am excited to present it in my first solo show at the Eastport Gallery."
