Elizabeth Babyn and Linda Heffernan at Loop Gallery

loop Gallery is pleased to announce exhibitions by loop members Elizabeth Babyn entitled Illumination and Linda Heffernan entitled Inadvertent Intervention.

Elizabeth Babyn's current body of work, titled Illumination, derives its inspiration from a selection of under painted images depicting sacred geometry, sacred places and sacred architecture on raw canvas. With spontaneous large gestural brush strokes, she allows her intuition to direct her as she navigates her way through the canvas.
Babyn obtained her BFA with honors in Drawing and Painting at the Ontario College of Art and Design. She paints and teaches at her Bolton studio, north of Toronto. She has been a Loop Gallery member since 2003 and has exhibited in Ferrara Italy, Propeller Gallery for the Visual Arts, Spin Gallery, Whitney Gallery, SGI, McMichael Gallery, Caledon East Studio Tour and various other venues in the surrounding area.

Linda Heffernan’s Inadvertent Intervention is a series of paintings that explores the aesthetic beauty in the potential ramifications of extreme climate change by imagining satellite views of Canfield oceans.
Linda Heffernan is a Whitby-based artist exploring themes of consumer capitalism and bureaucracy in an ever more interconnected global economy. She has a BFA from Ontario College of Art and Design. Linda is a member of Loop Gallery and has exhibited her work in a number of galleries in Toronto's Queen West district as well as Whitby's Station Gallery and The Robert McLaughlin Gallery in Oshawa.
