From the Heart

Headwaters Arts second members’ show of 2024 titled, From the Heart, is truly a heart-warming, deeply personal, and big visual presentation of works that speak to what “heartfelt" means to the 21 artists selected for this exhibition.
Well known Dufferin artist and owner of Maggiolly Art Supplies in Orangeville and returning Headwaters 
Arts member, Emilia Perri has two stunning, very large, acrylic on canvas artworks that are all about love. 
Says Emilia, “My painting called, Lacrime d'Amore or Love Tears is about the sorrow one feels when 
love is lost, there is the raining of tears that come and go, it doesn't matter how much time passes, the 
feelings from the background can come to the foreground at any given time.”
For Caledon artist, Lorraine Roberts, the theme for this show brought out her love of flowers. Says 
Roberts,”Flowers have been grown, cultivated and given as gifts for hundreds of years. They are symbols 
of heartfelt affection and love that are given on all occasions. My paintings display a gardener's love of 
sharing the ephemeral beauty of flowers with any person passing by. This is a heartfelt act of giving 
without expecting anything in return.”
Opening reception to meet the artist takes place on Saturday, February 17, 2024 from 1-3 pm in the Gallery in Alton.

From the Heart opens on Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2024 and runs until March 17, 2024.
