Mark Spowart, The Story Is The Medium

Mark uses photographic imagery as an entry point to tell stories. Not content with 'pretty pictures' he's always looking for deeper meaning and an opportunity for the viewer to question what they see, drawing their own conclusions to the story told.

Anne McLean, Dancing Colours

 For Anne colours dance with the vibrancy of life itself.
The rhythm of this dance is well choreographed on her canvas as surge, flow, pause, repeat, en-trace the viewer.

Amanda Caldwell, Making a Good ImpressionAwakening

When most people hear the term print they immediately think of mass production, which is why print artists like Amanda find themselves often having to explain their process.   Amanda works primarily with lino, that tough hard to kill stuff flooring used to be made of. She uses knives and gouges to painstakingly carve her image, which she then prints using specialized inks and press. Each colour layer requires more carving and a separate printing, making the overall process very delicate and time consuming.
The end result is stunning and Amanda has earned several awards for her amazing artistry.
We are very proud to have her work displayed here in the Art Emporium Port Stanley.

Mario Moran, A Passionate Turn

Mario is relatively new to the Art Emporium, and we are delighted to have his amazing turned wood creations here in the gallery.
For Mario each creation is a passion project, he is evangelical in his enthusiasm for wood, and making best possible use of what the tree has given us. That zeal shows in the quality and originality of his work, he has several pieces in the Boathouse Gallery, it was hard to choose one to feature! This vessel contains over 800 individual pieces each lovingly cut by hand, assembled and turned.

George Conklin paints landscapes in oil. An avid outdoorsman, with a life long interest in colour and design, it is natural for his subjects to come from Nature’s inspiration, his impressionistic landscapes are alive with light and the drama of Ontario’s northern landscape

Though he has studied extensively since, George is faithful to the philosophies and techniques with attention paid to light, air and atmospheric perspective, imparted by his mentor the late George Nelson a retired designer/ painter who had studied at the famed “Arts Students League” in New York City.
