New exhibit at ARTspace

Tracy Root’s “Prism of Perception” exhibit opens this week at ARTspace.

ARTspace in Chatham has a new exhibition opening April 1.

Artist Tracy Root’s work will be on display, specifically her “Prism of Perception” work.

Root, a respected member of the London art scene for many years, moved to Chatham-Kent during the height of the pandemic.

The opening reception takes place April 1 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

As a new resident arriving during the isolation of the lockdowns, Root responded to these challenges by dedicating herself to her studio practice. During this time, she created paintings that evoke a sense of longing, loss, and acceptance.

Through her highly refined painting style, she perceives the world as a kaleidoscope of geometric patterns, lively composition, and vibrant colours.

Everyone is invited to this free and family-friendly event.

The artist will be present to speak about her work.

ARTspace is located at 165½ King St. W. in Chatham and is open from noon to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday.
