Su­san Pater­son ex­hibit opens at Fog For­est Gallery

Col­lec­tion of new oil paint­ings a cul­mi­na­tion of artist’s long, ded­i­cated prac­tice


A col­lec­tion of new oil paint­ings by Su­san Pater­son rep­re­sents a cul­mi­na­tion of her long and ded­i­cated prac­tice, her at­ten­tion to de­tail and her love of paint­ing.

Fog For­est Gallery is wel­com­ing the Nova Sco­tia painter back to the gallery for a solo ex­hi­bi­tion. It be­gins with an artist’s re­cep­tion Thurs­day, Oct. 11, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. All are wel­come to at­tend.

“I re­call in 2008, how Su­san Pater­son ex­pressed to me her ex­cite­ment to be at­tend­ing a paint­ing work­shop at the Mu­seum of Fine Arts in Bos­ton,” says Janet Craw­ford, owner of Fog For­est. “It would be a work­shop in oil paint­ing . . . the old mas­ter’s tech­niques.

“Paint­ing in oil would be a de­par­ture from her prac­tice in wa­ter­colour and in­taglio print­mak­ing, and I was keen to see how she would re­spond to this new medium. I could not have pre­dicted how per­fectly suited this new ap­proach to mak­ing art would be to Su­san.”

Now, af­ter 10 years of per­fect­ing her tech­nique, Pater­son’s old­world still life paint­ings are highly sought af­ter. Although she paints in a high re­al­ism style, her works are paint­ings in ev­ery sense.

The ex­hi­bi­tion, con­sist­ing of 14 new oil paint­ings, con­tin­ues un­til Nov. 10, 2018.
