What is revealed? What is concealed?  

Through painting, photography, sculpture and multi-media, artists explore ideas connected to a covering up, whiting out – creating a
Hemingway-like tip of the iceberg.

The concept is not only a therapeutic painterly clearing the slate but also filled with aesthetic possibilities.  Each artist interprets the concept within the parameters of personal discourse.

IRIS is a Durham Region-based collective of women artists. IRIS and invited colleagues explore the idea of white out–that less is more, or maybe not.
