Melissa Kempf -Stone Feathers

I love the delicious irony of something as light and delicate as feathers, being depicted in stone.
Melissa, works in soap stone, alabaster and other stone, achieving a delicacy and sense of movement that will astound you.

Debra Kubu-Versatile Talent

Debra can do it all.
As an art teacher, (she taught at H.B.Beal for many years - London's renowned High School of the Arts) Debra mastered many styles and mediums. Now retired she finally has the time to fully explore her creative self.  She is constantly amazing us as she goes from strength to strength, you'll love what she's doing! Rock on Deb!!

Philip Schmidt-Photographer Beyond Compare

Philip has an extraordinary vision.  His Connected Arts presentations, meld the work of  some of the best artists of our region with his photographs, all framed in superlative style.
Philip is not  just a wonderful advocate for artists, he's a true talent as well, and we are very glad to have his work here, in the Art Emporium.

Jackie Sutherland-Subtle Texture, Rich Colour

I love the depth and colour of Jackie's work.  She has that uncommon gift of drawing you in, layer by layer, this is work that can bear both close scrutiny and viewing from a distance, definately worth the trip to Port Stanley!

Karen Thyret, Extraordinary Watercolour

Well the title says it all :)  
Watercolour is reputed to be the most difficult medium to work in, but Karen makes it look easy.
Crisp colour, wonderful variation in line, and soul, these works evoke a response.
Indeed, a talent to be watched!

Debra Bailey-Group of Seven inspired....

Debra's inspiration by the Group of Seven is obvious, but she has put her own twist on that iconic Canadian Style.
Depending on the subject matter, she also works in a highly realistic manner, making work that has that alluring 'glow'  that so many strive for, and so many miss. Congratulations Debra, there isn't a miss here!

 The show of the youth from the Talbot Teen Centre is on here at the Art Emporium.
