Lisa Lipsett & Kuno Egger
August 26- September 7, 2016
Opening Wine & Cheese Reception Friday August 26, 5-7pm.
“To chase” is synonymous with pursuit, hunt or trail in order to catch up with. “Bliss” or “to be blissed out” is perfect happiness, great joy, ecstasy, rapture, or euphoria. Please join painter Lisa Lipsett and ceramic/glass artist Kuno Egger as they share their delight of form, movement and texture in this captivating and colour-rich show. In a celebration of their 25 years as life partners and more recently as creative partners, they explore how complete bliss is never quite sustained in marriage, hence the word “chasing”, although fortunately it may be attainable in art.
