May your days be full of joy, peace and contentment shared by family and friends. We sincerely hope that your dreams are met and never tarnish, with new dreams aplenty waiting to be filled.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

December Featured Artist: Annette Martin

Like all good artist's, Annette continues to ask herself the question, 'what could be' exploring her medium's potential and her own inner story.
I'm particularly intrigued by the addition of texture, and inclusion of maps in her latest works.

December Featured Artist: Anne McLean

When talking about her work, Anne refers to dancing with colours. What a beautiful description of the painting process, and you truly can see the flow and rhythm of dance in her work.

December Featured Artist; Melissa Kempf

'Precious stone', has a new meaning.
Melissa has a poets touch with her carving tools. I'm sure the stone sings beneath her blade as it becomes...wonderful.

December Featured Artist: Carole McNeely

I love this piece of Carole's, paintings done in related colours (analogous) can be a bit bland, but not this one! The colour choices are vibrant, and interesting, much like the artist who painted them.

December Featured Artist: Candy McManiman

Candy is a woman of passion, much of which can easily be seen in her work.
That passion has given her international recognition. Her work can be seen in books, and exhibitions from Florida to British Columbia, and points between, including our Art Emporium, here in Port Stanley Ontario!
She has travelled extensively, on birding exhibitions to some of the worlds most remote places, she is a signature member of artists for conservation, and she has a fascination for symbolism and religious iconography, all of which which informs her work, and makes her a captivating conversationalist.

December Featured Artist: Philip Schmidt

Philip's subject is light.
Furthermore he is willing to go to extreme lengths to capture it.
If he happens to be in the gallery when you're here, ask him for the story behind any one of his magnificent photo's and be prepared for a tale that will curl your hair!
He's also willing to spare no expense to present his work in the best possible manner. He uses  Cromagenic film-not digital, because of it's superior colour range, and his current work is all displayed on Sintra, a revolutionary printing process that creates stunning depth and colour, unmatched by any other process.
My photo (below) only begins to hint at the incredible beauty of his work.  This is truly a see to believe experience.
