For January and February, four local artists are featured. Their work will be on display until March 4th, 2017.
Jeff Willmore was born in Toronto in 1954. He pursued studies in Design prior to completing a Diploma of Fine Art at Fanshawe College in 1980. He has exhibited on a consistent basis since that time in public and commercial galleries throughout Ontario, establishing a strong regional profile. Past exhibitions have often combined painting with storytelling and other performances. The Canadian Council Art Bank, Museum London and the University of Western Ontario include Willmore's paintings among their collections. His work is also in many private collections and he received the Canadian Emerging Artist's Prize, sponsored by Connor Clark Private Trust and the Canadian Art Foundation, in 1999.
Dennis Eric Moss is a self taught Canadian artist who has become increasingly popular in recent years. he has won many best painter awards in various prestigious shows including the former O'Keefe Centre. His work comprises mainly landscapes which he paints on location in Ontario throughout all seasons. he has exhibited frequently since 1977. One of his paintings was chosen for the East York Mayor's Official Christmas Card in 1988. He was the Painting Demonstrator for the C.N.E. between 1974 and 1982.
Educated and employed as a scientist for many years, Angela Lorenzen's artistic development and choice to pursue painting as a second career is far from ordinary. An absence of formal training in the arts has not prevented Angela from studying and appreciating the work of other artists. Angela is particularly drawn to the works of Canadian realist painters - Alex Colville, Takao Tanabe and Christopher Pratt. Please visit her website for more information.
George Conklin paints in oil as the strength of the colours most relate to how he perceives his surroundings. The energy of oil paint maintains a fresh wet "just finished" surface. First hand observation of Nature's many moods serves as his inspiration. His interpretation of these moods comes in design and colours of the ever changing light.
