All sorts of arts at Corre Alice Gallery

If you think you've seen it all, you haven't been to the Corre Alice Gallery, where all sorts of different art is being displayed.

If you think you’ve seen it all, you haven’t been up to Cumberland at the Corre Alice Gallery, where all sorts of different art is being displayed.

We’re asking you to open your mind and come see what people whose vision of the world around them takes a turn down a different road on a different day in a different surrounding.

The works featured here are rare, eccentric and most times; beautiful. Artworks will feature one-of-a-kind furniture by stain glass artist Nancy Morrison. We are also featuring the vibrantly energized abstract pieces by Arlene McLeod.

Pam Young of South Hollow fame will feature a whimsical mixed media piece with a luxurious variety of specialty papers that may or may not contain elephant dung.

Yes, they’re different. They’re a cobbled-together group of artists that have no general direction, without theme or mission statement.

They try to nail down what it is that we make but someone like Erica Johanssen who creates “plaster coming to life off of a canvas ” just doesn’t help, albeit miraculously true.

Jeremy is a young man who loves his cats and can’t stop painting pictures of them and they are rumored to be getting bigger, the paintings, not the cats, hopefully. Barb Hutson is a colourist and feeler of space, dimension, texture and soul. Her work will try the viewer.

Expect the challenge from the limitations of the two-dimensional picture plain, and a triumph of colour. Gina Finotti will feature her bombastic and strange portraits.

Jeff Hartbower is a fixture and solid citizen in our art community. His works always include a sentient comment about our community as well as breaking us, into a world that decries injustice and alienation of the modern man.

In a world arrayed against the artist as James Baldwin once said, we offer a view sometimes stifled yet expansive and mostly different.

This show is called Wild Women Uncorked. It’s not a fitting title since there are also men in our show, and as far as whether they are wild, you’ll have to take that question up with them.

Think of the cork as object, as metaphor. The meaning of being uncorked is letting out things,of celebrating; your and our creativity. It is the unleashing of a million views, derivations cogitations, and all this in our incredible art community.

A small world gives us a small view, an uncorked view sends us into a world with infinite worlds, and different parameters, different possibilities.

Wild women Uncorked debuts at the Corre Alice Gallery on Dunsmuir in Cumberland on Nov. 2. A reception starts at 7 p.m.
