Art Exhibition: Afternoon Tea

12 January 2017

In February and March, the Strathmore Municipal Library welcomes back Strathmore Artist Deb Klics.  

Nothing sparks warm memories like a cup of afternoon tea.  Our featured exhibit includes mixed media painting in varying sizes.  The artist used photos, acrylic paint, tissue paper, writing pastels, and other materials to create these semi-abstract works in various colours and textures.  These works give the viewer a sense of pleasure, similar to drinking a cup of tea with a loved one.  The exhibit will call to mind playful moments of tea parties with your child or cherished memories such as having a cup of tea with your grandmother.  Loving memories and connections are revisted while sitting with a steaming cup of tea.  We invite you to relive those memories by viewing this beautiful Afternoon Tea exhibition.
