Elizabeth Barrett

Elizabeth graduated from Queen's University with a degree in Natural Sciences in 1967. After raising a family of 3 children, she went back 30 years later, to York University to pursue her interest in Art, graduating in 1997 with a degree in Fine Arts, specializing in painting, sculpture and design.

She has taken a number of courses at the Haliburton School of Fine Arts, as well as focused workshops with painters from across Canada. The paintings are of varied mediums such as watercolour, acrylic and mixed media. Her work reflects a close affinity to nature and wildlife.

Eight years ago she began to focus on sculpture, working with different types of stone. After a few years of instruction at Haliburton she began to take additional courses at Zim Art at Rice Lake, working with South African sculptors, Elizabeth further experimented with her own designs which were better suited for a metal medium, rather than stone.

The style of much of her work is semi-abstract reflecting a mood or feeling representational of the subject matter on the canvas or in stone. She has exhibited her work in group and solo shows and has been a member of the Central Ontario Art Association and now lives at Sturgeon Point near Fenelon Falls.

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.

Vicki Carruthers

I am asked frequently to write an “artist statement” and like many artists I find it difficult to express in words why I make art or what art making means to my life.

What first comes to mind is my love of life, my sense of fun and energy, and I am here on earth and my wish is to share my passion, make a difference and put a smile on your face.

I start each painting with a “splash” of red.......then the fun begins and the images appear...shapes emerge ......all in preparation for the journey of colour to begin.  I favour bright colours, lively shapes and lines, with an attention to the whole canvas.  I love to push and pull the image as I play with paint, colour and composition - constantly adding, changing and taking away. My paintings communicate a positive message to the world, created to remind you of the beauty that is within and around us.

Love, life and shapes found in nature are my immediate inspiration.  The whimsy and delight and colour of the natural world as expressed by The Group of Seven, Ted Harrison, and Norval Morrisseau have remained an inspiration for me since I began painting.

My paintings BURST with BOLD, VIBRANT colour , STYLIZED shapes are full of energy and joy. My black outlines create the energy the shapes describe the story and as I finish each piece I am in “awe” of having done it.

I hope to leave this world a little brighter than it was. “Colour was not given to us in order that we should imitate nature, it was given to us so that we can express our emotions” - Henri Matisse

Christina Handley

Farm life and the rural landscape provide rich inspiration for photographer and metal artisan Christina Handley, who lives on a working cattle farm in Burnt River, Ontario.

Christina is a professional photographer whose photos of horses, nature and agricultural subjects have appeared in magazines, catalogues and calendars around the world. After her husband, Boyd, taught her to weld, she expanded her creative talents to include custom sculptures fashioned from new steel and found metal pieces such as old farm tools and machinery. One of her re-purposed metal horse sculptures was displayed on the cross country course for the equestrian three-day eventing competition at the 2015 Pan American Games.

Christina’s latest works include a new line of unique metal pieces, created with a plasma cutter, using a free hand technique, suitable as home décor accessories or garden art.

Geoff Fitzgerald

Colborne Street Gallery proudly presents Geoff Fitzgerald’s The Swimming Pools, 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.

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. In 2005, she established Liz Pead Studio in Toronto and in 2007, graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design (OCAD) with Distinction Honours in Drawing and Painting, winning the Medal. Pead has received grants from the Toronto Arts Council and the Ontario Arts Council. In 2016, Pead attended workshops in Weaving Copper Wire with Sayward Johnson in Ottawa, and Advanced Machine Knitting Techniques with Ursula Rautenbach at Heriot Watt University, Scottish School of Textiles; Galashiels, Scottish Borders. In 2017, she received the Mary Diamond Butts Award from Craft Ontario recognizing Excellence in Embroidery. She has travelled to Germany, Austria, and Denmark to research textile history and techniques in various institutions.

Most recently, Pead’s work was part of the exhibition, Power Play: Hockey in Canadian Contemporary Art, which was on view at the Art Gallery of Windsor (AGW) from February 9 – May 12, 2019. To learn more about this exhibition, visit the AGW website: agw.ca

Joan Horsfall Young

Joan Horsfall Young was born in Toronto, Canada and is a long time resident of the Kawartha Lakes. She studied art under Charles Goldhammer at Central Technical School and then spent 10 years studying in Europe. When she moved to California she was so taken by the characteristic light that she changed her style of painting to impressionism.

"Having been blessed to live and travel in so many parts of the world, I've learned just how similar people are. Our hearts usually beat for the same reasons. I hope that this is reflected in my work. "

Young has studied with many local artists and teaches herself.

Lucy Manley

Painting en plein air is a mainstay of Manley’s practice. Specializing in oils, Manley’s passion lies in painting rugged and wild landscapes during all seasons. Manley travels extensively, near and far, from her studio in Peterborough County searching for traditional landscapes, rural life, and dense wilderness.

Born in Germany in 1947, Manley and her family emigrated to Ontario in 1950. Her interest in studying art, lead her to Sir Sandford Fleming College, Peterborough, where she met David Bierk, Eric Loder and Edwin Matthews and studied Fine Arts Administration. Manley went on to study Contemporary Art Theory at Trent University. Manley has exhibited extensively in Canada since the 1990s and was an Artist-in-Residence at Bon Echo Provincial Park at Cloyne, Ontario in 1995-6. She currently teaches art classes at Loyalist College in the Continuing Education Department, Campbellford Resource Centre, Centre for the Arts in Warkworth, Cavan Arts, Gallery on the Lake in Buckhorn, The Painted Tree in Cobourg and the Kawartha Artists Studio & Gallery in Peterborough.

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 for new and exciting landscapes. Her favourite places are the Yukon, Northwest Territories, Newfoundland, the Gaspé 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.

Paul Chester

Using the horizon line as a constant starting point, Paul Chester is Inspired by the lakes, rivers, cloudscapes, fields, forests, and rolling hills that surround his studio. These locations are then painted from memory in the studio. Using brushes and palette knives, Chester’s works are layered repeatedly with oil paint and glazes, then painted, scraped, scratched and layered again to create a visual diary, where the works reveal their spiritual quality. They are an investigation into the visual and emotional connections of nature. Chester’s work is a real place and an imagined space at the same time, becoming a metaphor for the passage of time.

Paul Chester studied painting and sculpture at the Ontario College of Art (OCA), graduating in 1992. His work has been exhibited at The Latcham Gallery, The Station Gallery, The Robert McLaughlin Gallery, Edward Day Gallery, and in various other public and private galleries across Canada including Toronto, Vancouver, St. John, Halifax, Ottawa, Peterborough, Edmonton, Montreal, and Whistler. Chester has also shown his work in the United States in Minneapolis, Boston, Santa Monica, Los Angeles as well as in London, UK. Born in Toronto, Chester now works out of his studio in a quiet, rural area of southeastern Ontario.

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 considers the often dreamlike experience of being in nature. Constantly investigating scale, depth, movement, colour, and light through Impressionist brushwork, Goodliff 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.

Randall Speller

Randall Speller’s oil paintings focus largely on Victoria County and the area surrounding Fenelon Falls and Bobcaygeon, Ontario. Speller is fascinated by this region that his family has had connections to since the 1860s. Known for its lakes, lock system, and cottages, the artist has a fascination with a different part of this area; the hardscrabble farms and fields most tourists ignore on their way to somewhere else. Speller has created an extensive and significant documentation of the region for more than 30 years. His subjects are the constructed elements of landscape and buildings that have been shaped by people, weather, light, and time.

A retired art librarian, Speller splits his time between Toronto and Fenelon Falls. He has exhibited his work in Bobcaygeon, Fenelon Falls, Scarborough, and Toronto.
