The Peter Lewis Gallery is proud to introduce the art of Sarah Jane Conklin to St. John’s art appreciators and those who share the love of Rennie’s Mill River. Conklin’s memories of her childhood and her father are intertwined with the Rennie’s Mill River. Growing up with a view of it out her kitchen window meant it was part of her and her life. Her father Harold Lake had an affinity with the River along with his love of Dame Vera Lynn’s music is what inspired this collection of oil paintings and their titles. Sarah’s father was in the 166 Newfoundland Field Regiment and Vera Lynn sang for them. While on the Island the enormously popular English singer also visited the family home and perhaps took a stroll by the River herself. Michael Kilburn shows new works from Newfoundland, Paris and Florida as well as new and exciting works by Peter Lewis.
