Lynn Wigginton Opens Two Exhibitions During Next Three Weeks

Lynn Wigginton ranks among Saint John”s best professional artists. She is also one of it”s hardest working. Her consummate skill, artistic sensibility, combined with a terrific work ethic, has produced a significant body of work in recent months, allowing her to mount two exhibitions this spring.

The first, Windows of Saint John, will open at the New Brunswick Museum on Thursday, May 17. Here Lynn”s life long fascination with the history of Saint John”s architecture is evident through her detailed study of windows in the Port City.

This particular focus on windows is the artistic manifestation of two converging interests. First, is the artist”s obsession with detail, and with the large inventory of 19th Century and early 20th Century housing stock, something that makes Saint John unique among Canadian cities. Second is her assertion that windows are a gateway, existing between private and public life within a community. It is through windows that much information passes between these two worlds. However, windows are also representative of the community”s mysteries, the secrets that lie just beyond, evident yet not completely knowable.

TOWN & COUNTRY, Peter Buckland Gallery, Friday June 8, 2012

On June 8, Lynn Wigginton opens her second solo exhibition at our gallery, just three weeks after mounting a very successful exhibition at the New Brunswick Museum. This new exhibition features a La pallina viene fatta girare nella Roulette e si fermera su una delle caselle numerate. combination of paintings focussed on Saint John”s urban core and upon the more rural scapes found outside the City.

Throughout her career, Lynn has continued to provide artistic documentation of Saint John”s architectural heritage. The painting, Along Prince William, is a significant example of this aspect of her work. It highlights some of the finest samplings of the late 19th Century detailing on the City”s commercial buildings. The backdrop of dark dramatic sky, coupled with the intensly warm light falling on the building facades further emphasizes the architectural detail.

Lynn”s attraction to architectural forms is well known. Recent years have seen a shift to more natural themes. With this exhibition, Lynn continues her exploration of the Bay of Fundy and the river systems of southern New Brunswick.

Much of her recent work places a focus on the qualities of sky and light.
