Sonia Stastny is the resident curator of Studio B Gallery in Cumberland. Studio B Gallery hosts popular Collage Night series for anyone and everyone interested in the art of collage-making. Select collages are printed into art cards and sold to raise funds for local non-profit organization, Sew Sisters Artist Guild Society, under which Studio B operates. The arts cards can be purchases at the CVAG gift shop as well as the Studio B Gallery.”I have always enjoyed every aspect of art making – from taking photographs with an old film camera, to delicate application of paint, to getting elbows deep in a mixed media art piece. I get inspired by sunrises, tiny plants growing out of the dirt in my garden, and sparkles of different colours in my daughter’s eyes. I come from a scientific background and I enjoy incorporating my varied experience into my art. I seek surprises, humour, contrast as well as ease, flow and subtlety.”
