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."

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."
