Five Trees | 2012 | Acrylic on canvas | 70 x 66" | Pat Service

Just over a week left to catch the exhibition "Nests and Trees" featuring work from Pat Service and Vicky Marshall at The Reach Gallery Museum in Abbotsford, BC! Service and Marshall were selected to exhibit together by curator Scott Marsden due to both artists' shared interest in the exploration of aesthetics through abstraction from nature. 

Service's focus remains with trees, for not only do they play a strong role in our lives here on the west coast but they are also recognizable regardless of the detail present. And that is where her paintings begin - in that abstraction in nature explored through color, line, texture and composition. Her counterpart Marshall uses bird's nests as her method of exploring.
