Exhibition of Canadian Artists, “Open Horizons” in Tinos

Voreini Newspaper

The purpose of Open Horizons is to present to  Greek audiences the work of three internationally acclaimed Canadian artists: Ron Moppett, Allyson Glenn and Colleen Heslin.

All three artists are at the forefront of the Canadian art community. They go beyond the prescribed limits and hierarchies of art, which is evident in how the audience responds to their award-winning visual practices. In artfully innovative ways, they refer to the vastness of the nature of the Canadian landscape and illustrate it. They prefer to cover the canvas, sometimes expanding the works on the floor, creating artistic installations that tell stories of a world in liquidity – projects that can resist and confront the challenges of the Aegean Sea – the endless blue Horizon, plenty of light, and above all, the myriad stories that have been buried in the depths and washed out of its shores.
