THE PROPELLER CENTRE FOR THE VISUAL ARTS is pleased to present Patricia Crowley’s solo exhibition, Over the Water and through the Woods in the NORTH GALLERY from February 19 to March 2, 2014. A reception with the artist will be held on Thursday, February 20, from 6.30 to 9.30 pm.

Patricia Crowley’s recent oil paintings capture the quality of natural light and the scenery of the Bruce Trail and of Six Mile Lake, near Georgian Bay.

 In her work she is inspired by her sense of wonder when engaged with nature. Working from memories and sensations, her paintings capture what it feels like to be immersed in the natural world, through the shimmering qualities of light and unusual perspectives.

 Her vivid and often surprising colour combinations, bold and gestural brush strokes are charged with a passionate energy.  The angles and choice of compositions create a personal narrative; we are invited to travel with her, discovering the unique perception of not only the landscape but also the artist herself. 

 Patricia Crowley was born in Montréal, Québec, and lives in Toronto, Ontario. She has studied at the Ontario College of Art, the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Toronto School of Art and Project Art Studio in Toronto.  She has participated in group shows with the Project Art Studio since 2009.  Recently, she has had solo shows in Toronto at the Art Square Gallery (2011), the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition (2012) and The Artist Project. (2013).

  THE PROPELLER CENTRE FOR THE VISUAL ARTS is a member-run gallery located at 984 Queen Street West, Toronto, ON M6J 1H1. The Centre is located east of Ossington Avenue in the heart of Toronto’s Queen West Gallery District.
