Receiver Coffee Co.

this town is small presents Tug of War

by artist Deborah Montgomery on view to Nov 8. This series of ink and watercolour paintings emerged from a study of early Greek mythologies and explore the relationship between seemingly opposing forces: day/night; male/female; underworld/overworld; birth/death. While at times appearing to be at odds, these forces rely on each other to function as a complete system. These paintings imagine this relationship as a game of tug of war, with the pulling of the two hands creating the ebb and flow that either keep the system in balance or upset that balance. 128 Richmond St, Charlottetown. 367-3436
