(Brampton) - The Art Gallery of Peel and the Peel Heritage Complex are pleased to present the exhibition Towards a Meaningful Expression: The Watercolours of Neville Clarke. The exhibit is opened January 24 to March 25, 2001. A reception to celebrate the exhibit will take place on February 21, 2001, from 8 to 10 p.m.

Fascinated with humanity, Neville has focused primarily on depicting the human figure. His subject matter tends to be relatives and friends - people he is familiar with. He takes these familiar subjects and creates a universality that allows the viewer to connect with the subject. He is a master of watercolour and his paintings have expanded the limits of the medium.

This show is the second in a series of exhibitions featuring the works of artists of colour. The Gallery has made a commitment to show works by black artists bi-annually during February to coincide with Black History Month. This exhibition will also travel to the Thames Art Gallery in Chatham, an area connected with the Underground Railway in the 19th century.

The Art Gallery of Peel is part of the Peel Heritage Complex and is operated by the Region of Peel and located at 9 Wellington St. E. in Brampton. The Complex is open to the public Monday through Friday: 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.; weekends: 12 to 4:30 p.m. and Thursday evenings: 6 to 9 p.m. The admission fees are $2.50 for adults; $1.50 for seniors; $1 for students; and $7 for families.

The Peel Heritage Complex is made up of the Region of Peel Museum, the Art Gallery of Peel and Region of Peel Archives. Together they collect, preserve and display a wide variety of materials related to Peel's heritage.
