Artist explores natural world

From realism to abstraction, Sharon Stone has built up an impressive range of work exploring the natural world through an artist’s perspective.

Her work will be on display at Gallery 223 next week (Sept. 22-30).

Her collection titled the ‘Forest Series’ is reminiscent of stained glass in a church, evoking a sense of sanctuary and solitude. Her landscape and figure paintings, some of them award-winning, are equally well-explored and well-received.

“My paintings are largely impressions of nature as reflected in colourful landscapes and waterscapes. It is my hope that each image I produce will be powerful in its ability to pull the viewer in,” Stone said.

The artist will be in attendance for the show opening on Saturday (Sept. 22), 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., with plans to paint.
