A PAS-SING GLANCE: PAS MEMBER MICHAEL SILVERSTONE

written by Erica Lindsay Walker, vice president, education chair

I happen to love winter. Yes, it’s cold and inconvenient and sometimes seems to last forever, but there is nothing like its light or stillness. I love just standing outside and drinking in the white hush of winter solitude. For me, seeing Michael Silverstone’s graphite drawing […]

A PAS-SING GLANCE: PAS MEMBER CARYN COVILLE

written by Erica Lindsay Walker, vice president, education chair

Modern society is a stressful place to be. Everywhere we go we experience noise, visual as well as aural. But classic representational art can be a great antidote for this. It’s refreshing to rest our eyes on something calm and orderly – and if there’s a […]

A PAS-SING GLANCE: PAS MEMBER ALDOLFO FERNÁNDEZ RODRIGUEZ

written by Erica Lindsay Walker, vice president, education chair

Who doesn’t love the marvelous things water and light can do together? Certainly Adolfo Fernández Rodriguez does, as evidenced in his beautiful “Waiting in Princess Street”. This is a gorgeous tour de force. Here, light and water dance in a blaze of colour, a night street […]

A PAS-SING GLANCE: PAS MEMBER DIANE WRIGHT

written by Erica Lindsay Walker, vice president, education chair

I enjoy Diane Wright’s landscapes, and this is one of my very favourites. I always have the feeling when I look at it of cool restful shadows leading to a sunny, welcoming field.

Agnew Meadows

The fact that I find the shadows cool is just […]
