Dennis Tourbin Members Gallery at NAC

Reception Sat 13 Dec 2014 2PM-4PM

The work in the show looks back at the past two decades of my art making. The primary focus is on the intricate yet intertwined relationship we have with nature. It also includes several works that feature architectural reliefs from buildings in St. Catharines.

The materials in the pieces include: clay, black & white photography, gum bichromate, cyanotype, oil pastels and mixed media.
