Good Eye: Responding to the Landscape

Jun 15, 2019 - Sep 2, 2019

Good Eye: Responding to the Landscape. June 15-September 2. Opening Reception June 15, 2:00 p.m. Sharon Barfoot has enjoyed a long and varied career in the arts that has included costume and jewelry design, teaching, graphics, curating and, most recently, painting full-time. Sharon's approach to the work in this exhibition is minimalist in which she applies the Buddhist concept of Miksang. Miksang is a Tibetan word meaning "good eye" where it is asked that we view the world in a new way; a way that is always fresh as if seeing it for the first time. Sharon responds to the landscape with a "good eye" and works to bare the bones and remove the details in order to find the essence of place. Admission (all prices before tax) Individual $8.00 Senior/Student $6.00 Children (4-12) $4.00 Children (3 & under) Free Day pass for Bruce County Archives & Research Room $6.00
