Diane Smith and Margie Puckering - The Feminine Principle
November 30, 2023 to January 23, 2024
Reception: Wednesday, December 6, 2023, 6 to 8 pm
The paintings, sculptures, and drawings by Diane Smith and Margie Puckering depict the tabooed suffering of the female self and other living with dis-ease. Their complementary, intuitive, process-oriented approaches raise awareness about postmodern suffering and the vulnerable impermanence of the human body and mind.
With three degrees underpinning her career, Margie Puckering (1949-2009) had many exhibitions that featured her perspective on the human condition. She taught art classes for youth and spent two years as the Solo Exhibit Coordinator for the Foyer Gallery.
Diane Smith studied at Ottawa art institutions, completed a bronze sculpture apprenticeship, and taught art in schools and communities. Her works in solo and group exhibitions, commissions, and private collections bear witness to our shared humanity and search for connection.
