The Old Town Hall Art Gallery

Bringing the Visual Arts to Norfolk County

Current Exhibit

Marguerite Larmand
Drawing Like Willow
July 18 – Sept. 6, 2018
Reception, Sunday, July 22, 2018, 2 – 4 p.m.

Marguerite Larmand has been inspired by Willow; its living form and its bending properties that allows her to create new form. She uses the tangible willow branch to create drawings, paints, and sometimes transforms into industrial roofing felt to make the image. Some of these are again transformed into steel that are blasted to a bronze like finish.

“Drawing is an evolving act. By integrating it with tandem forms of making, this evolving just happens. For the work in this exhibition, I am being mentored by Willow, its gesture, patterns of movement and its relationship to wind, sun and water. Learning from Willow and making that understanding visual is what I am trying to do.”

Marguerite Larmand has a B.A. in Art and Art History from McMaster University, a M.A. in Education from State University of New York, Buffalo and a Master of Fine Arts, from York University, Toronto. Having retired from the teaching profession in 1995, Marguerite has since been a full-time practicing artist and educator. Six Directions Studio, Simcoe ON is her studio and residence.

Thank you to Venture Norfolk for recognizing The Old Town Hall’s Art Gallery program through a matching fund grant. We have installed a state of the art hanging system that will serve artists showing their work in the Old Town Hall Gallery for years to come.
