52 & Counting by Peter Powning

“It’s not only a time of reflection for me but a time of creative engagement. This exhibition includes a range of work completed a few decades ago, relatively recent work, and work so new that it’s still hot. It covers many of the materials and techniques I’ve used in my career. Thanks to Gallery 78 for their support in having this show; it is a timely juxtaposition with my fifty-year retrospective at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery.” -Peter Powning, 2022
Since 1970, Peter Powning has lived and worked as an artist in the hills of southern New Brunswick. His life is characterized by intense periods of work preparing for exhibitions and commissions, punctuated by periodic travel. While Powning's award-winning work is shown internationally, it is imbued with qualities distilled from a life lived close to silence, space, and seasonal rhythms of his home, the fields, forests, and shorelines of Canada's east coast.
All are welcome to meet the artist at the opening on Friday, December 2, from 5-7 pm. Masks are encouraged.
