Uptown Gallery presents Floral Fantasy. In this wonderful new show, the featured Artists, Elaine Cowan, Vickie Lawrence and Adrienne Zoe, present the many different, joyful, delicate and colourful aspects of floral art. Flowers symbolize hope, renewal and the beauty of nature. Whether in a vase or growing in the garden, this show represents the many fantastic, fragrant and delightful creations that Mother Nature has given us. Come to the opening reception and meet the Artists, enjoy light refreshments and view the lovely floral fantasy!


Elaine Cowan enjoys working in watercolour and acrylic. She especially loves the flow and magic of the intense colours of acrylic on canvas, and the exciting surprises that happen on the slippery plastic surface of Yupo paper. These mediums allow for refreshing ways to render the timeless subject of florals.

Vickie Lawrence works in a variety of mediums including graphite, coloured pencil, watercolour, acrylic, and mixed medium. She enjoys the challenge of portraying her floral subjects in photo realistic detail... capturing that fleeting moment in time with vibrant colour, mood and great lighting. Vickie has enjoyed gardening for many years and often uses her own flowers as subjects in her art.

Flowers provide an endless source of inspiration for photographer Adrienne Zoe. Her creative signature images look like paintings, and involve in-camera manipulation and some digital post-processing. In straight photography she captures refreshing new perspectives on subjects. A nature lover, she portrays birds, plants and animals artistically in photographs.
