Viewpoints Art Exhibition at Streaming Cafe
Viewpoints is an interpretation of everyday life by two local artists Leanne Spanza and Christina Leinemann Knittel. Leanne captures familiar landscapes with bold colour and simple shape, where as Christina focuses on small moments with expressive marks and subtle textures. These contrasting styles of work celebrate the different points of view that can be found within a community.
There will be art on display and for sale with many different sizes to choose from and of course, full of bold colours. Friends and family are welcome! There will be beer and wine available for purchase and of course great coffee from the Streaming Cafe.
Also, two draws will be made for two paintings, one by each artist! Make sure to enter while you are there for your chance to win.
Art from both artists will be for sale and on display.
Believing that it is important to slow down from our hectic lives, I am inspired to capture the simple things in our everyday landscapes that can sometimes be missed. I paint because I love to create and am passionate about surrounding myself with people, places and objects that make me happy. I hope to remind the viewer of the importance of the simple things in life and seeing beauty in all that surrounds us.
Christina Leinemann Knittel
I typically create in an intuitive manner and my work is often informed by what speaks to me in the moment, allowing the surface of the canvas to guide my hand in the placement of paint, paper and colour. This approach allows for spontaneity and exploration in my creative process. I am inspired by the little things that make people smile and a playful sense of discovery.
