The open­ing re­cep­tion for Jaan Teng, Tris­tan Teng and Friends show takes place Sun­day from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Kawartha Artists’ Gallery and Stu­dio, 420 O’Con­nell Rd. with re­fresh­ments and artists present. The show fea­tures paint­ings and three-di­men­sional art by the Tengs (fa­ther and son) along with works by Anne Lepp, Carolyn An­stee, Jodie Hames, JoAnne Con­nell-Northey, Lor­raine Sta­ples.

Jaan Teng has been cre­at­ing art since he was a child. He paints land­scapes and flo­ral im­ages in acrylics, as well as do­ing sculp­ture in ce­ment and welded iron. Over the last few years he has been cre­at­ing more three-di­men­sional art.

Teng says that his mo­ti­va­tion for creat- ing art is “To ex­press my thanks for the beauty of my ephemeral ex­is­tence as ver­sus the noth­ing­ness of eter­nity.”

His ad­vice for bud­ding artists is to “Look and look some more un­til you see.”

Teng was born in Es­to­nia and went to school in Eng­land and the Univer­sity of Toronto. His son, Tris­tan Teng, is grad­u­ate of OCAD Univer­sity and also U. of T.
