Artist and Conservationist Candy McManaman

 An accomplished artist technically, Candy also has a tremendous gift for storytelling.
 She is a signature member of Artists for Conservation, her work has been published, featured in many prestigious galleries, and in the permanent collection of several. When you view her work, you immediately know why.
We are honoured to show her work here in the Boathouse Gallery of the Art Emporium.

Paul McSherry: Guru of Glass

Paul has stepped away from the stained glass realm, and found his genius in fused glass.
 His work is becoming ever more intracat including agates and other semi precious stone, a feast for the senses that begs you to touch.

Digital Artist: George Sapkowski

When is a photograph not a photograph?
When George works his digital magic on photo's, they become mysterious, and otherworldly, showing us  the what if...of the everyday world.
See them now in the Boathouse Gallery at the Art Emporium.

Ethel Mitrovic, Populating the World With Funky Critters

 Quirky, thy name is Ethel!
Ethel has many fans, the reason - you have to smile, and perhaps giggle when you see her work.

And we all need a smile :)

Multi Talented David Dale

The multi talented  David Dale's CV reads like a listing of  ways to make art. Name it,  and he's done it.  Of the work he has here at the Art Emporium my personal favorites are his wonderful pottery bowls, but that's a hard choice, because everything he turns his hand to...is marvellous!

Tom Scanlan: Carver Extraordinaire

There is a reason Tom wins so many awards...
He's really, really, really good.

Annette Martin, Colour, Line, Design and Texture

Annette, like so many of us, started her career doing almost photographic realism, but like so many of us, she became dissatisfied with 'making copies'. Some take up the challenge to do more painterly, looser work, some go all the way to non representational work. Annette has created an abstraction of a world all her own.
Annette's world is populated by fish, living in drowned cities, floating through leafless trees. Though this all sounds post apocalyptic, some how Annette's use of colour, line, design and texture makes  the lesson easier to digest.  Masterful teaching indeed.

Marie Harold-Pastel Gems

Marie worked in watercolour for many years, about two years ago she decided she was ready for a challenge, and switched to pastel.  The irony of this, is that watercolour is considered by many to be  the most challenging of mediums, with pastel running a close second. 
Marie is obviously up to any challenge either of these mediums can give her.  Amazing work Marie, here in the Boathouse Gallery of the Art Emproium.

Karen Thyret, Accomplished waterclourist

Clean crisp watercolour is Karen's hallmark.  Endearing subject matter, and feelings of time and space all come together to create the perfect portrayal of her topic.
