Verone Solilo


Verone is a passionate and enthusiastic artist in Airdrie, Alberta. She recently relocated from Regina, Saskatchewan where she attended the U of R, raised three children, taught playschool, did illustrations for books and her own children’s stories, and was a member of the Aurora Art Guild. She is now on the board of the Airdrie Regional Arts Society. Her art has been featured in the Airdrie Life Magazine. Her work shows in her studio and at various art shows such as Spruce Meadows & Calgary Art Market to name a few.

Verone describes her art as “painting with emotion, every brushstroke has a purpose, every colour a meaning”. Although she has painted realism in the past, her style now is bright colours of expressive impressionism. She uses loose acrylic brush strokes and energetic knife work to insinuate, but not entirely describe what she imagines. “I always leave something for the viewer to imagine and transport them to a place that is special to them”.

This exhibit at the Airdrie Library includes some of Verone’s interpretations of nature; from her earlier watercolour realism to her colourful expressive impressionism. Many of them were painted as part of a project called Studio 52 – 5 artists painting one small piece every week for a year, with one big collaborative Art Show in 2019.

In the McCall Room: Voice & Vision 2018: A Collaborative Project - Inspirations

September + October

Voice & Vision is an annual collaborative project in which local visual artists and writers exchange work in the name of inspiration. In May 2018, 14 artists were randomly paired up with 14 writers, each submitting a piece of work to inspire the other. Over the summer, participants created a piece in response, all to be unveiled and read at the final Voice & Vision event on Saturday, September 29 at APL. This exhibit displays the initial artworks and their writer’s response.

Note: Voice & Vision: A Collaborative Project – In Response features the response artwork and written work, and will be exhibited in The Mainspace November and December 2018.
