Government House Features "Fluid Movement" Art Exhibit

Come on out and support local artist Brandie Rae Perkins’s new art exhibition at Government House!

Please join us on Saturday, January 25, where there will be an opportunity to meet Brandie, and tour her exhibit in the Queen Elizabeth II Gallery titled “Fluid Movement.”

Based in Regina, Perkins is a self-taught, multi-disciplinary artist with a focus on acrylic painting and alcohol inks.  Brandie was a children’s art instructor for years at a local art studio and has since developed workshops for children and adults.

Government House is excited to be partnering with Brandie to host a workshop for the public.  When discussing her art, Perkins explains, “my art captures my passion for the inherent beauty of nature and the skies.  I specialize in colour theory, texture, movement and expressing myself emotionally through the pigmentation, luminosity and saturation of the chosen medium.  I have years of experience with acrylics being my medium of choice and have more recently fallen prey to the languid lure of alcohol inks.”

The art exhibit will be showing at Government House from Saturday, January 18 to Sunday, March 29.  The free event runs from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. and is open to all ages.

Information about the event and other Government House programming can be found at www.governmenthouse.gov.sk.ca, on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/governmenthouse,  or by calling 306-787-5773.
