Barrett: Home is where the heART is
In April Round Hill Studio will be welcoming the fine art collage of Rhonda Barrett.
Rhonda Barrett is an artist from Newfoundland with a background in Architectural Technology, currently living in Nova Scotia, whose study of paper and Japanese arts finds her working in a chigiri-e style with newsprint.
For Barrett’s exhibit, “Home is where the heART is”, she chose pieces that pay tribute to her Newfoundland heritage, but, also celebrate Nova Scotia and the commonalities between the two provinces.

The waste-not-want-not attitude and nostalgia of her maritime upbringing is paramount in her choice of medium and also informs many of the images she captures. The use of newspaper as her primary medium is a nod to the temporal arts and our ideas of material value. She works out of her studio in Halifax, NS.
Round Hill Studio will be featuring these exemplary up-cycled art from April 3-29 and you can meet Barrett Friday April 3rd from 5-7 PM.
