A Moment of Mindfulness

Abstract artwork

Exhibition Run: February 19, 2022 – January 21, 2023
Curator: Nell Wheal

Mindfulness is a way of being and thinking. We focus our attention on what is happening in our body, our mind, and our environment in the moment. This exhibition features selections from the Woodstock Art Gallery permanent collection that explore the concept of mindfulness from the perspectives of both artist and viewer.

In 2021 the Woodstock Art Gallery acquired two paintings from Lee Claremont's recent body of work, Daughters of the Moon, which features female figures in the artist's recognized vibrant colours, adorned in beautifully painted textiles. The Ancestors and The Grandmothers both reference Elders who are held in high esteem and are a tribute to these women, their knowledge, and their commitments to their communities.
