An art show starting next week at The Arts Station will explore Earth’s elements.

Shannon Kelly’s work will be shown from July 28 to August 23, and includes three different elements – earth, sky and spirit.

“The Arts Station is pleased to be able to offer Shannon Kelly’s stunning works for public enjoyment for the month of August and hope that everybody appreciates the bold, majestic brushstrokes as they are juxtaposed with individual imaginations,” said Courtney Baker, Administration Assistant at The Arts Station.

“The Spirit paintings are described as evocative and surreal and metaphysical in nature. This is reflected in the multiple layers of paint and hidden meanings. The Sky paintings are peaceful, airy and serene, a perfect escape. The wide-open skies provide a place for the mind to be still. The Earth series represents the outer world and plays with elements of nature. Shannon will have paintings from all three of the series at her amazing exhibit at The Arts Station.”

Shannon describes herself as an intuitive artist.

“I’ve been painting for 10 years,” she said. “I’m mostly self taught and love expressing myself with texture and colour. My goal is to expand consciousness with art.”
