THE COLOR

ONE SURE THING

Listen Live

A local artist and graduate of Providence University College is exhibiting her paintings in her alma mater's library.

Renelda Peters has put more than 50 fluid acrylic paintings up in the Providence library and says that Providence helped her connect with God, and that is what comes out in the painting.

"I believe that God is the best artist," Peters said. "The more I look at his art, that inspires me to express myself with the gifts that he has given."

Peters works with fluid acrylic painting, which involves pouring paint onto a canvas. It can be poured on directly or it can be smeared on. She says you have very little control [over] what the outcome will be when you start. The only thing you can control is the colours.

"It's definitely not clean," Peters laughed. "That's the fun of it."

Terry Kennedy is the library director at Providence and says that part of being created in the image of God is that we create.

"This is just one way that we can show that we are created in the image of God," Kennedy said.

Kennedy believes that local artists need a chance to showcase their work and Providence is happy to support their own alumni.
