Caledon artist Lyn Westfall exhibits a collection of paintings titled The Requiem Series, Nov. 1 to Dec. 4 at St. James’ Anglican Church in Dundas.

The paintings combine the theme of a mother’s death, the Second World War and 911. The paintings are also the result of Ms. Westfall’s intense and repeated playing of Gabriel Faure’s Requiem.

With the CD in apron pocket, Ms. Westfall painted the music to which she was listening. The 12 large, colourful paintings will be in exhibited in the contemplative setting of St. James’ Anglican Church.

As a special event to honour Remembrance Day, Nov. 11, Ms. Westfall will give a personal talk on her experience as a “war child.”

Ms. Westfall will discuss how the little French elephant Babar helped her begin her journey of discovery about her father, Flight Sergeant Wilfrid W. H. Lavers, RCAF.

The talk takes place at 9:30 a. m. in the Art Gallery.

Regular gallery hours are Monday to Friday, 9 a. m. to noon.
