A Portrait Of An Artist ... Darlene Hassall - The Perfect Pairing for Norman Bray

Date Posted: 31/03/2015

The Perfect Pairing ... Theatre Orangeville proudly welcomes the art of Darlene Hassall during the run of Norman Bray In The Performance Of His Life.  Please check out our wonderful display in the upper Theatre Lobby.

Art is a part of everything that I do. I live and love the environment that I find myself in, that is exhibited in my work in the landscapes series expressions and some of my abstracts. Art to me, is not a brush touch on a flat screen of canvas. It is important to me, that the painting be a means of involving the audience; to have them want to touch and experience what is on the canvas. To pause. To reflect.

I am learning, through having had the opportunity to study with some very talented artistic people, and those darn life experiences, that it is as much to do with the journey, than it is with the end result. That reaching out, trying what is uncomfortable, learning to play, is where the true creations come from.
