MEET ART ON MILL STREET
Portfolio of Artwork
Since 2020 and the advent of COVID-19, our homes have become central for us. We were stuck in them, took respite in them, relaxed in them, worked in them, cleaned and sanitized them, repaired them, spruced them up … and in turn, our homes have sheltered us from the elements, kept us safe from the pandemic, and brought our families closer together. My watercolour house portraits attempt to honour our relationships with our homes.
Kimberley Popoff is a self-taught artist who specializes in watercolour house portraits. She has exhibited her work at a local gallery, library, restaurant, and bakery, and her paintings are displayed in private collections.
Kimberley’s work explores the idea of the home as a member of the family. Imagining the house as a character in the family story, her home portraits suggest that the family is inside and going about their day. The house stands to protect and shelter its family, particularly during these times of self-isolation.
BRAMPTON LIBRARY EXHIBITION
Brampton Library provides occasional exhibit space to individuals or groups wishing to display hanging works of art. This free exhibit space enables Library visitors to participate in the creative life of the community, and presents artists with a valued avenue for exhibiting their work.
