Thursday Artist Talk: Gabrielle Strauss, "Art and Soul"
Explore the connection between art and soul, mind and body with local artist Gabrielle Strauss in this Thursday Artist Talk organized by Surrey Art Gallery Association.
Tickets & Pricing
Local artist Gabrielle Strauss invites people to explore the connection between art and soul, mind and body. Strauss’ paintings draw viewers into a dance of colour, light, and form. She will share her experience and approach to creating her mixed media and intuitive paintings.
Creating art is more than a strategic process for Strauss, but a form of spiritual connection. Her looser and freer style has led her to experiment with many artistic techniques and methods that have a healing effect upon her state of being.
