Ruth Upjohn Gallery presents Japan and Beyond, a solo exhibition by WAAC artist member Myra Evans.

WAAC member, Myra Evans, is having a solo show at the Ruth Upjohn Gallery called Japan and Beyond, from September 6-16. She was inspired to create this body of work on a recent trip to Japan, where she enjoyed the delicacy, beauty and sensitivity of Japanese arts and crafts. In this exhibition, Myra has used her photos and collage materials from her trip and reworked them into collages and mixed media work. Some of the “Beyond” images are on wooden cradles with a resin finish, while the others are on canvas. Take this journey with Myra through time in exploring the sensitivity and extraordinary artistry of Japan and “Beyond”.

Myra is a self taught artist who currently works in mixed media and collage. She has completed both a Bachelor and Master of Arts in English and Education and began making art work after retiring from a long career in teaching and administration. During twenty years of art making, Myra has exhibited in Ontario and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Her work has been show many times at the Leslie Grove Gallery in Toronto, the Dignam Gallery, Todmorden Mills, and the Galeria 19 in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Her work can be found in private collections in Canada, the United States, and Mexico.
