PERIVALE – From August 24 to 30, Manitoulin artist Lauren Satok will be presenting ‘Water Forms,’ an exhibition and sale of new works at Perivale Gallery

“All paintings in this new body of work describe well-known places on Manitoulin Island, at varying times of year reflecting change, movement, stillness and mood,” a press release from Perivale Gallery notes. “Whether it is snow covered roads, intermittent spring run rivers, evening thunder heads or the coming fall rains, Lauren’s paintings aim to engage and immerse viewers in Manitoulin Island’s beauty and spirit.”

With titles like ‘Upper Kagawong River,’ ‘Big Lake Dam,’ ‘Misery Bay,’ ‘Sheguiandah Bay – Still Waters,’ ‘Sugar Shack – Spring River,’ ‘North Channel,’ ‘Strawberry Channel Lookout,’ ‘Waterforms – South Baymouth,’ and ‘Manitowaning Bay – Ice Melt,’ “Ms. Satok’s paintings celebrate the waters of our Island and can be seen as documents and homages of shared place and spirit and a way to connect, share and see water’s ever present and essential place in our lives.”

The opening reception with Ms. Satok is this Saturday, August 24 from 1 to 5 pm at Perivale Gallery, 1320 Perivale Road East, Spring Bay. Refreshments will be served.
