Bob May is a self taught artist working between craft and art on everything around us…on natures own canvases as I like to say, and seldom on store bought materials. Mixed mediums used include acrylics, pen & ink, watercolors, airbrush, colored pencil, woodburning and woodcarving. Art is often on slate, barnwood, pine, canoe paddles, feathers, ceramics, antiques etc., often combining many mediums in the same piece.
Gordon Hare is a Ward Foundation World Champion Wildfowl Sculptor. He has portrayed birds and animals in a variety of media including bronze, ceramic and wood. His work has been shown at institutions including the National Geographic Society in Washington DC, the British Museum of Natural History and the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto.
Barbara Lehtiniemi is a writer and photographer based in North Glengarry. She finds much of her inspiration for her photos in the natural world. Barbara believes everything is extraordinary and worthy of a closer look. In her photo graphs, Barbara endeavours to present the overlooked and the unusual in interesting ways.
Carmelle Lalonde Hagen Born in Glen Robertson, in rural setting and being involved in the farming industry all my life has made me appreciate nature’s special attraction being it flora or fauna. One of my dream was to paint on canvass . At the age of 40 I Accepted a gift from a friend, a paint brush and a tube of oil paint, and the new adventure started. Self taught I successfully painted scenes with birds and nature. A few years later I was initiated to stain glass on glass, a very rewarding and enjoyable medium of art. Now I use old barn board to define more of my expression. Each creation is unique and with a special meaning.
Sherry Lamb-Heinzle is a Canadian born, self taught artist who has been living and working on her eastern Ontario organic farm with her husband and 3 children for more then 20 years.
In the beginning, she was hesitant to become a full time artist, so went to school for graphic design and worked for several years in that field before deciding to take time off to raise her family. Being a full time, at home mom of 3 was fulfilling, but she struggled to find time and energy for art. Originally an acrylic painter, she was in need of a creative outlet but with small children, painting was not a great option. She remembered her old box of Prismacolour coloured pencils that was purchased in her college days and started to draw and experiment. It was a perfect fit! A portable, cost effective, easy to “pick up and put down once the kids had finished napping”solution! She hasn’t looked back since!
Jane Prieur has worked with chalk pastel for 30 years. Mainly doing keepsakes for owners who love their pets. She also dabbles in acrylic from time to time. Enjoy.
Danyca Schneider Lindeman loves capturing the beautiful moments of her critters on the farm. She got her 1st camera at 11 years old and has been shooting ever since. Life on the farm is quite the adventure. Danyca also studied Animals Assisted Therapy and has been working with her animals to help people with special needs since 2008. Photography, therapy, Farm visits, anything to share those special animals with others. Her pictures can also be found on postcards, mugs, stickers and other small gifts.
Magdelene Van Den Oetelaar Magdelene is a craftaholic who finds much joy in playing with different mediums. Although she does not put a lot of time aside for “art”, she does get fully immersed in her work when she does.
Mark Summers Mark was born in Derbyshire, England. He moved to Canada to do graduate studies in agriculture and now lives on a hobby farm in Glen Robertson with beef animals and his wife’s horses. A lifelong birder and lover of the outdoors, he became interested in painting about five years ago. Drawing inspiration from the late Dutch graphic artist, M.C. Escher, Mark enjoys working with tessellating forms, including one of toucans in this exhibit.
Eric Covington Eric studied the craft of glass blowing at Montreal’s Espace Verre, the Haliburton School of the Arts, and in private studios. The fluidity and immediacy of the “off-hand” creative process captures him completely and continues to inspire his artistry. Inspired by nature and fueled by the discovery of learning new processes and techniques motivates him to make special tools to achieve his unique results. Eric’s glass blowing studio is an integral part of Priest’s Mill Arts Centre, a non-profit glass arts school and the host of many local artists.
Paulette Larocque-Rozon- In my younger days, I was a fashion designer in Montreal. I never thought I would become a painter until my sons offered me a beginner’s paint kit for Christmas! My beautiful adventure began. Since then, I have used countless paint tubes experiencing with oil and acrylics. I love to play with colours and bring life into a canvas. My main goal is to bring joy through my art. I wish to make people smile while adding colour and beauty from the outside in…and from the inside out. Enjoy!
