SUDBURY, ON – July 23, 2014 – Artists on Elgin will be featuring the works of Kathy Dolan for the month of August. "Life's a Birch" is an exhibit featuring various paintings all focused around one subject- birch trees. The opening reception will be held at Artists on Elgin on Saturday, August 2 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. The exhibit will be on display for public viewing throughout the month of August.

This uniquely northern exhibit features a variety of paint mediums such as watercolour, acrylic, pastel and more. The inspiration for Life's a Birch came from Kathy's surroundings in Espanola, Ontario where there are plenty of beautiful landscapes and trees for her to use as reference.

"Life's a Birch is a dialogue in nature from a trees-eye-view," said Kathy Dolan, artist. "Imagine as you walk through the forest that you're a tree. What would you be thinking? What wood you say?"

The public is encouraged to attend the opening reception where Kathy will be in attendance to speak about her work. "Life's a Birch" will be on display at Artists on Elgin throughout the month of August.

"This show brings you front and centre with nature," said Courtney Natale, business promotions coordinator for The Northern Artist Gallery/ Artists on Elgin. "If you're stuck working this summer instead of being at the camp, this exhibit provides the perfect break to reconnect with the outdoors."

Artists on Elgin is located at 168 Elgin Street, and is open Monday to Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
