Coastal Impressions: Works by Three Nova Scotian Artists

Lunenburg Art Gallery
79 Pelham Street

We are preparing to showcase the various media of Ron Kuwahara, Gail Sutherland and Robert Sutherland. The Opening Reception for their exhibition "Coastal Impressions: Works by Three Nova Scotian Artists" will take place on Tuesday, May 30th at 5:00 pm at the Lunenburg Art Gallery. Refreshments will be served and all are welcome to attend. Their bios follow and we hope you are able to attend. RON KUWAHARA Ron Kuwahara, physicist, turned to his artistic need to draw and paint which led him from his professional career to studies at NSCAD University. In 2011 he completed his BFA with a major in painting.

Gail is an avid hiker who enjoys, and is inspired by, the people and rugged beauty of the Maritimes. ROBERT SUTHERLAND Robert Sutherland, a retired architect enjoys painting plein air and is most comfortable creating with pencil and charcoal. Watercolour has been a presentation medium of his choosing for over forty years and has enjoyed figure drawing for quite some time. Oils were his first choice, however, after retiring, decided to switch to acrylics because of the quicker tying time, which better suits his temperament.
