Octarine: The Colour of Magic

June 17 to October 6, 2019

Opening Reception: Friday, June 21, 7:00 to 9:00pm

Formed in 2013, the Octarine Women Artists’ Collective (OWAC) is a group of eight Wellington County artists who work in diverse media and exhibit together annually.

Octarine: The Colour of Magic is their sixth show together, featuring the work of current members Judy French, Carol Hughes, Kim Johnston, Jean Loney, Leslie Miles, Gail Root, Anne Smith, and Susan Strachan Johnson.

The inspiration for the show comes from the late lamented British sci-fi writer Terry Pratchett, who described octarine as the eighth colour of the spectrum, the “colour of magic and undisputed pigment of the imagination.”
