Beryl Fournier, a visual artist and painter living in Smeaton, will take charge of the Art on Main gallery in Nipawin, as well as the GP Carlson gallery in Prince Albert with her exhibition Imagine Landscapes.

This important solo exhibition in a public gallery presents more than thirty paintings and several of his most recent works. In Imagine Landscapes, Fournier presents an intriguing selection of her most creative work, where she says she expresses her admiration for the mystery and beauty of nature in a form of “sunny surrealism.”

In Beryl’s garden, butterflies mingle with fish. In his Prairie Landscape, an open book the size of a hill has a blue river as a bookmark.

Other landscapes feature multicolored hills that recede and then rise into the sky. And in the forest scenes, the spaces between the tree branches become stained glass.

Fournier, who recently retired from a 50-year teaching career to focus on her art, said she uses her intuition and inventiveness to make the invisible visible and, metaphorically, portrays her joys and its questions about life and meaning.

The exhibition will be presented until Monday, June 27 and can be seen at the usual hours from Monday to Saturday. Call (306) 862-4867 for schedules.
