Joan Chivot
Presented by Artists on Elgin
July 30 – August 30

INSPIRATIONS FROM THE BOARDWALK is open to the public at Artists on Elgin for the month of August. The reception will be held on Saturday, August 6th, 2016 from 1 to 4 pm.

The title for this exhibition comes from Joan Chivot's daily walks along the Boardwalk. She explains "this is where I chase away my night dreams, plan my day, get exercise, commune with nature in all seasons, make new friends. It is only natural that the views from the Boardwalk have been an ongoing inspiration in many of my paintings from the beginning."

Chivot's paintings depict scenes familiar to Northern Ontarion, including colourful sunsets and skies reflected into the lakes below. "What I especially enjoy in painting is mixing colour, so the often stunning skies and reflections are a great resource along with other scenes from Bell Park" continues Chivot.

Joan Chivot's artistic endeavours began in 2002 following an early retirement from education. She is primarily a self-taught artist working in oil, acrylic, watercolour, and pastels. She has travelled to more than 60 countries and has been influenced by her travels, as well as the surrounding local northern landscape.

INSPIRATIONS FROM THE BOARD WALK is proudly sponsored by Violette Law.

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.
