“A Lens and Brush with Nature” is the title Kensington artists, Robert and Kathleen Milner, have given to their joint exhibit of visual images created with the understanding that we all need to focus on preserving nature and the environment.
“Nature’s natural beauty captured through paint or photography can be viewed as a reminder of our need to be constantly vigilant,” they said. “The air, the oceans, the land and its inhabitants, are all in danger from pollution. Good husbandry is the only way to care for the water we drink, the food we eat, and the air we breathe.”
The couple have shared a lifetime love of nature and the outdoors, and the exhibit is a mixture of their art mediums of painting and photography. Robert is a painter of nature in all its changing forms. Kathleen’s photography captures a lifetime love of nature and domestic and wild animals. Both artists have had numerous shows. Robert’s works hang in many private homes and corporations on five continents. Kathleen has sold her work throughout North America and England.
The exhibit will hang throughout February and March and can be viewed free of charge, Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Tuesday evening 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at MacNaught History Centre and Archives.
