Alexander

Alexander is known for his paintings of nature, particularly his most recent series, For The Love of Trees. The works in this particular series are studies of the natural light surrounding various tree species in and around Haliburton. Painted with a loose and relaxed, yet confident brushwork, these acrylic works document our ever changing natural environment. An avid environmentalist, Alexander has great respect, appreciation, and ongoing concern for the Canadian wilderness. Alexander has exhibited his paintings throughout Ontario.

Plein Air Landscape SKetches

These small paintings are from Alexander’s personal collection of plein air sketches. Plein air painting, simply means work that is painted outdoors. The artist makes these sketches onsite in order to capture different elements such as lighting, composition, colours, and textures. He is then able to refer back to them while painting in the studio. The paintings are available in 5 x 7 inches and 4 x 4 inches.

Amanda Burk

Drawing is central to Amanda Burk’s art practice and research. She received her MFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (2003) and her Honours BA Fine Arts Specialization from the University of Waterloo (2001).

Her work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally - most recently she has participated in exhibitions in Thunder Bay, Ottawa, Toronto, and Peoria, Illinois. Her work has just been featured in the International Drawing Annual, INDA 11, published by Manifest Press and she was also recently interviewed by Tussle Magazine.

Burk’s work has been collected by the City of Toronto, COBRA to Contemporary (Netherlands) and the Thunder Bay Art Gallery. Burk lives in North Bay, Ontario, where she is an Associate Professor in the Department of Fine and Performing Arts at Nipissing University.

Artist Statement: Dual Series

This series of large-scale charcoal drawings on paper, featuring two-headed northern animals, playfully contemplates ideas surrounding cohabitation and symbiotic relationships, and was also motivated by ideas around cellular division, conception, and the animal nature of our biology.

Each animal, although seemingly identical, is upon closer inspection an individual and maintains a degree of independence. However, interdependence is clearly an inescapable aspect of these mirrored relationships.

The Dual Series takes advantage of the play on the word “dual”. Each drawing in the series is titled after a famous duel. Dual (Senna), for example, references the famous race car driver Ayrton Senna who won the 1992 Grand Prix in Monaco. This particular race between Senna and Nigel Mansell was referred to as a duel, and Monaco has the rabbit as one of their national animals.

As the Dual Series evolved it bridged into a body of work titled Full Circle where the animals gain more autonomy and now interact with each other in a more confrontational way.

Christina Handley

Christina Handley is a metal artist and professional photographer. She is known for her work in both mediums and her subject matter is always inspired by her surroundings and daily life. Living on a working cattle farm in Burnt River, Ontario, she is inspired by horses, nature, farm life, and agricultural subjects. After her husband, Boyd, taught her to weld many years ago, Handley expanded her artistic practice to include custom sculptures fashioned from new steel and found metal objects such as old farm tools and machinery. She has also added plasma cutting to her ever growing list of skills.  

Handley’s work was exhibited at the 2015 Pan American Games on the equestrian cross country course and has been featured in many magazines, catalogues, and calendars around the world. Handley has participated in local art fairs including the Kawartha Arts Festival and has been a practicing artist for over 20 years. Her work can be found as a permanent installation on the bridge overlooking the falls in Fenelon Falls, Ontario.

Darcie Kennedy

Darcie Kennedy’s work explores the relationship of predetermined methodologies and their application to contemporary painting. Her system of painting combines control and the element of chance. She favours an implied simplicity created through a mechanical process of paint application: painting in a most elemental state. She has found line paired with colour to be visually stimulating — so much so that any additional elements would only diminish the straightforward composition of the paintings.  Theories on approaching painting as a process of accrual, by working in mechanical, anonymous-authored layers are of interest to her.  Investigating and isolating one aspect of the creative process, how it might suggest the paintings’ later stages, and the impact on the final outcome. Her paintings incorporate and work to further this approach, while also hinting at the undeniable presence of the human hand (in favour of chance) in the overall composition.

Kennedy grew up outside of Fenelon Falls, Ontario. She has an MFA from the University of Ottawa and an Honours BA in Art and Art History at the University of Toronto, as well as a diploma in Art and Art History from Sheridan College. Her work has been exhibited in Ottawa, Gatineau, Hamilton, Mississauga, Oakville, Toronto, and Japan.

David M. Smith

David Smith is fascinated by the movement of colour and light across the landscape. He is known for his paintings in watercolour, acrylic, and more recently in oil. The artist moves daily across land and water, finding inspiration at every turn; sketching, painting, and photographing. Smith believes that between light and shadows are where we find beauty.

A poet as well as an artist, Smith is also an active participant in the annual Apsley Studio Tour. Smith has shown his work in Fenelon Falls, Apsley, Stony Lake, Bancroft, and various other locations across Ontario.

Eddie LePage

Eddie LePage loves nature. The artist is known for his paintings of the countryside and wildlife. The complex relationship between humanity and nature is often the inspiration for his paintings. LePage’s godmother was First Nations and instilled in him a great love and respect for the natural world that has stuck with him throughout his life. LePage begins his work with an initial idea followed by intensive research. He then ventures out into fields, wetlands, and forests with a camera in hand looking to capture his chosen subject. Once the information has been collected and sketches completed, LePage returns to his studio to begin painting.

A self-taught artist, LePage has used his painting practice to reflect upon and document the natural world around him for over 40 years. His work has been exhibited in Vancouver, Calgary, Hamilton, Toronto, Burlington Peterborough, and the East Coast. LePage has participated in many regional studio tours and his work can be found in collections across Canada and Germany, France, Britain, Japan, Australia, South Africa, and the United States.

Geoff Fitzgerald

Geoff Fitzgerald’s The Swimming Pools is a selection of photographs documenting public pools across Toronto, Hamilton and Oakville. The swimming pool has been a source of inspiration for many artists. Matisse made a work titled The Swimming Pool in 1952, Hockney began painting his famous pools in the 1960s, and Edward Ruscha’s first book project in colour, Nine Swimming Pools and a Broken Glass, was printed in 1968.

Oozing with vibrant colours and a boldness typical of summer days, these images of a fleeting moment in the hot sun, also project the uncanny. One of Ruscha’s pools shows wet footsteps running off the diving board, yet no figures are present. It’s slightly off-putting. In a similar way, Fitzgerald has shot his photographs from an altered perspective; the bird’s eye view. His pools do not depict sparkling blue water and splashes in the sun, they are taken in the off-season; devoid of people and the warm tone of summer. They are empty, almost abandoned with a certain unease. Fitzgerald’s awareness and exploration of formal qualities combined with striking composition invites you to consider these spaces anew.

Fitzgerald is an award winning, Toronto-based freelance commercial and editorial photographer. He has worked with various clients including the Fairmont Hotels, Canadian Geographic, Ryerson University, and Habitat for Humanity. His most recent exhibition was held at Hashtag Gallery in Toronto in the Fall of 2018.

James Goodliff

James Goodliff is known for his bold and colourful landscape paintings. Using a rich and vibrant colour palette, Goodliff’s works show a deep understanding and appreciation of the natural world. Painting both en plein air as well as in his studio, the artist is constantly investigating scale, depth, movement, colour, and light through Impressionist brushwork. He finds inspiration in a patchwork of light on the forest floor, the sparkle of rippling water, long grass dancing in a field, and even a stormy sky.

Goodliff has a Bachelor of Art from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (NSCAD) and a Diploma in Commercial Illustration and Graphic Design from Niagara College. He accepts commission work and his work is found in national and international collections, both corporate and private.

Jennifer Lefort

Jennifer Lefort’s fresh approach to abstraction combines bold gestures, electric colours and spontaneous biomorphic forms together in a playful dance of her own distinctive style. Aptly examining the coexistence and codependence of formalism and expressionism, Lefort places the viewer in an open-ended narrative of colour field and pattern, structure and disorder – embracing intuition and accident in a chromatic exploration of abstract space. An ongoing play between chaos and order, the weightless compositions offer a place for poetic speculation, for fantasy and freedom in a fleeting transformative exchange.

At once pre-tech and post-virtual, Lefort’s abstractions mirror the paradoxical nature of our current age. Sampled from urban culture and spiked with the tart, acidic colours of digital media, her gestures evoke the urgency and immediacy of abstract expressionism as well as of our fluid and fast-moving media landscape. Solid backgrounds brim with irregular lines. Emotive colour bursts across the canvas in lakes of blue and bubblegum pink. Through layering and repetition, Lefort’s process conveys a deep curiosity about form, colour and space, as well as a reassessment of oil painting traditions. With mists of spray paint and roiled impasto, Lefort conjures liminal spaces poised on the verge of ecstatic transformation – vigorous explorations somehow both capricious and bracingly resolute.

Jennifer Lefort lives and works in Gatineau, Quebec. Her work has been exhibited at Mindy Solomon Gallery (Miami), Parisian Laundry (Montreal), Equinox Gallery (Vancouver), Art Toronto and VOLTA. Lefort was a 2007 RBC Painting Competition finalist and received the prestigious Joseph Plaskett Foundation Award in 2005. The artist was honoured with the CALQ "Artwork of the year Award" in 2016 for her sculpture and painting exhibition entitled Le nouvel atelier, Curated by Marie-H/l'ne Leblanc at the Galerie UQO. The same year, she was invited as the first international artist-in-residence with PEZ Limited, a curatorial collective based in Los Angeles.

Joan Horsfall Young

Light and colour are the focus of Joan Horsfall Young’s paintings. The artist holds a great fascination for how light behaves in the natural world. . Influenced by the Neolithic Caves of Lascaux, the Barbizon School of painters as well as the Impressionists, Young explores fragmented light as a starting point, then transposes these spontaneous moments onto the canvas with a carefully considered palette and Impressionist-inspired brushwork. Young’s works are a true testament to light and colour. Having lived in various parts of the world, the artist is intrigued by diverse geography and the common bond that unites humanity. 

Horsfall Young was born in Toronto, Canada and splits her time between Los Angeles, California and the Kawartha Lakes, Ontario. She studied art under Charles Goldhammer at Central Technical School, Toronto, as well as at Stowe School, Buckinghamshire, England, California State University, and 5 years of travel and study throughout Monaco, Germany, and England. Young has exhibited her work at the Pasadena Museum of California Art, National History Museum of Los Angeles, the Richard Nixon Library, as well as in Vermont, Park City, Fenelon Falls, and numerous cities in California. Her work is found in private and corporate collections in the United States, Canada, Monaco, and the Cayman Islands.

COTTAGE SERIES

Cottage: a small, simple house, typically one near a lake or beach.

These noble cottages are rustic, ornamental, grand, humble. Some have screened porches, draughty rooms, or latticed doors. Some leak and have bats. Some overflow with children and bikes. Some are cozy when we shelter from the howling winds of a thunderstorm. Most are old and feel lived in and are surrounded woods teaming with wildlife. Some have weeds, choked gutters and spiders. All are loved. What stories they could tell if only they could speak. These are the cottages of Sturgeon Point.

Karen Richardson

Born in Montreal and growing up near Algonquin Park in northern Ontario, Karen Richardson finds inspiration in the harsh terrain of the Canadian Shield. The forests, rocks, lakes, and rivers that encompass this area fill the artist with restorative energy. Travelling 1/3 of every year by motorcycle, RV, boat, snowmobile, ATV or simply on foot, Richardson explores North America in search of new and exciting landscapes. Her favourite places are the Yukon, Northwest Territories, Newfoundland, Lake Superior, and the American Southwest. Primarily self-taught, Richardson teaches painting workshops and paints in her home-based studio in Lindsay, Ontario overlooking peaceful farmland. Richardson’s work can be found in corporate and private collections across Canada and in 20 countries worldwide.

Leanne Baird

Baird’s paintings are both a study of the physical and metaphysical. Exploring the natural landscape and investigating the way light behaves in these environments are constant sources of inspiration for her work. Deconstructing these complex environments into the basic elements of art, Baird transcribes the line, shape, form, and colour of these quiet moments in nature. Citing painters, Emily Carr and Lawren Harris, as inspiration for both their artwork and their spiritual journey, Baird continues the tradition of Canadian Landscape painting through her recording of scenes in and around the Canadian Shield.

Baird has a Bachelor of Arts with Distinction from the University of Toronto. She has also completed studies internationally and at the Haliburton School of Arts, the Royal Conservatory, and the Art School of Peterborough. Baird has exhibited her work at the Kathleen Gormley McKay Art Centre, Ethel Curry Gallery, the Art School of Peterborough, Agnes Jamieson Gallery, Varley Art Gallery, Rails End Gallery and the Art Gallery of Peterborough. She has participated in many studio tours including Peterborough, Uxbridge, and the Kawarthas. Baird was a Guest Artist at Lakefield College School in 2016, a past Board Member at the Art School of Peterborough 2010-2012, and has been featured as a Guest Artist on HGTV. She has also taught children’s art classes at the Varley Art Gallery and numerous school boards in Southern Ontario as well as Lakefield College School and the Art School of Peterborough.

Liz Pead

Liz Pead creates artwork from almost anything she can get her hands on; wool, thread, ink, paint, even recycled hockey gear. An accomplished textile artist and hockey player, Pead’s material explorations are a reflection on memory, history, and location. Exploring Landscapes, is a collection of Pead’s work including her stitched landscapes, ink sketches, hand woven wool blankets, as well as her hockey art.

This exhibition speaks to the varied processes and materiality found in Pead’s work. Her ink sketches act as a starting point for the artist to expand upon later in the studio. Pead’s handwoven blankets are a testament to her exquisite mastery as a textile artist. In her stitched landscapes, fleeting moments of time spent in nature are rendered in thread to describe land, trees, and sky. Directing the thread across a woven metal substrate is oddly reminiscent of nature; fierce and powerful, elusive and reflective. The layering of thread mimics that of a forest canopy. Pead’s hockey works are particularly eye-catching. She creates these works by collecting and tearing up recycled hockey gear. Cutting and stapling sticks, elbow pads, socks, and jerseys, Pead collages the materials to create wildly colourful, rugged Canadian landscapes. It is hard not to become delightfully engrossed in the materials, imagery, and all of the detail found in Pead’s work.

Pead grew up in New Brunswick and lived by the sea, painting, drawing, weaving, and working in galleries. She studied Fabric Surface Design (1993) and Textiles (1995) at the New Brunswick College of Draft and Design.
