Meghan Dauphinee shows work next month at Oso Negro Cafe
Kootenay School of the Arts graduate Meghan Dauphinee trains a most peculiar eye on her old hometown of Nelson in an exhibit of 10 paintings coming Wednesday, May 1 to the Oso Negro Café in Nelson, B.C..
A recent Paint Ontario award winner and winner of a City of Edmonton art internship, Dauphinee returns to her art school stomping grounds to present It’s All Uphill, a personal tribute to the vibrant Nelson community.
Her bold, colourful acrylic paintings tackle familiar settings with a fresh, insightful technique that often incorporates her textile arts training.
“The Nelson community is so full of colour and energy. It is a perfect fit for my approach to painting,” said Dauphinee. Nelson was declared the ‘Number One Small Town Arts Community in Canada’ by the publisher of The 100 Best Small Arts Towns in America.
The exhibition is scheduled to run until May 31. Enjoy a coffee with friends, and explore this unique perspective on Nelson.
Oso Negro is located at 604 Ward Street, just one block uphill from Nelson’s main thoroughfare of Baker Street. Open Monday – Saturday 7 a.m. – 6 p.m., Sunday 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. and stat holidays 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.
