Summer in Burlington is a chance to get out and experience the country side, the beach and the art studios.
The Teresa Seaton Gallery on Spring Garden Road, steps away from the RBG is exhibiting some of the work of Nikola Wojewoda who describes the current exhibit as a “body of work grew out of that awkward transitional phase artists sometimes find themselves in. It was all about giving my permission; to begin from ‘not knowing’, listening to quiet impulses, and to genuinely allow myself to play. It resulted in a rediscovered love of drawing.”

Exhibition dates – Aug 16 – Sept 30, 2018
Reception – Sat Sept 8th, 2018, 2-5pm

Nikola Wojewoda is a contemporary artist of Russian and Polish descent. She graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design in 1981.

  • Thanks for the kind article. Nikola’s exhibition is contemplative, hence the title of the show. Each platter is so full it take time to let the message reveal itself to the viewer. I am so proud to have her as my guest artist.
