 Aaron Hagan, Michelle Coté, Sheila Shaw and Chelsea Wilson are collaborating  on their exhibition “Colour & Connection” which runs Jan. 28 to March 11.

 John Saville at the Trianon was happy to host the exhibit.


 Of all the sales, 25 per cent will be donated to the Lethbridge Soup Kitchen.


“All of these artists’s styles  complement each other, so I decided to organize a show,” said Aaron Hagan, who always wanted to put on a show with  Sheila Shaw in particular, noting his and Shaw’s art share a similar mark making technique, or how the artists applies the paint to their works.

“ Shelia draws  shapes like squares and  rectangles similar to  what I do,” he said all of the artists have their own unique styles.


“Chelsea  tears up her paintings and puts different pieces of them onto canvass and Michelle is a graphic designer,” he said, adding  the use of bright  colours brings all four  artists” works together.


“This show is  mostly colourful abstract art,” he said.


 “ We really like using bright, bold colours and playful expression explored through abstract art,” Hagan said.


 “Colour & Connections” and  “ Capriquarius” open at the Trianon Gallery  (104 5 St South) at 8 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 28, after the official opening s of the new Casa exhibits.
