Uptown Gallery presents The Wilderness.  In this new show Igor Dragoslavic, Michelle Salter and Jean Weller interpret the wilderness with paint, encaustic medium, and camera.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS:

Igor Dragoslavić is a graduate of the Bogdan Šuput School of Design, in Novi Sad, Serbia. Concurrently with his 30 years of professional career in graphic design, Igor achieved accomplishment as a painter, illustrator and photographer. Waterloo has been Igor’s home since 1992.

Michelle Salter explores feelings of the loss of wilderness through the medium of encaustic waxes. Canada has a variety of wilderness ecosystems but as our society, represented both by corporations and individuals, encroaches on nature and natural habitats, loss of species is inevitable. We must balance our gain against this loss, making sure the benefits are worth the upset of the delicate balance that allows us all to thrive together. 

Jean Weller has travelled widely throughout Canada with camera in hand, searching for nature’s unspoiled beauty. She has photographed in remote areas in the north and west as well as wilderness closer to home.  Scenes of the Canadian Arctic, the Yukon and the Great Lakes will be featured in the new show as well as her love of wild life represented by wolves and coyote.
