Art: The new artist from the emerg­ing artist pro­gram at Artists on El­gin is Kate Ruther­ford. Her land­scape paint­ings de­pict places where re­al­ity and imag­i­na­tion merge. They orig­i­nated in pho­tos or me­mories of real places and she used ab­strac­tion on vary­ing de­grees to cre­ate new des­ti­na­tions that re­flect some of her emo­tional land­scape. They are paint­brush med­i­ta­tions and es­capes for a rest­less mind. You can view Ruther­ford’s land­scape paint­ings in the sun walk at Science North un­til July.
