It's a lovely day out there today, and it looks like it's going to heat up a bit! What a great day to be by the lake, to take a nice long stroll or go for a swim. We hope you're enjoying this lovely summer weekend! To celebrate the day, here is a lovely painting by Bob Arrigo!
With the cold weather still here, we have some delightfully fitting winter scenes by Christian Bergeron. His distinct style is easily recognizable and his depictions of rural Quebec or other parts of Canada have a wonderfully dream-like quality to them, bringing a sense of calm and beauty to his snow-covered landscapes.
Today we have a lovely new collection of works by Steve Tracy! Perfect for the holiday season, with a touch of snow and wonderfully vibrant colours. Steve Tracy was born in Santa Clara, California, in 1953, and grew up in Colorado and California. At the age of 10, he began painting with a set of hand-me-down oil paints. His education began at the School of Visual Arts in New York. He went on to graduate from the Colorado Institute of Art and furthered his studies in sculpting, design, drawing, illustration and commercial art. Steve also studied printmaking at California’s Kala Art Institute. Currently, Steve lives in London Ontario where he has donated his time to a recent public art endeavor in the downtown core. “I have great interest in London and want to see it thrive” he says, “I want to help the London core to be brilliant and revived – with glorious retail, thriving businesses and healthy lifestyles.” Steve was also commissioned to paint one of the 12 violins for Orchestra London’s “Painted Violins: Strung out on the Arts” soirée at the Museum of London.
If you came to our evening event on October 19th, you had a chance to see Bob Arrigo create one of his stunning works right here in the gallery! We have this beautiful painting available for you to see and buy, so why not come to Crescent Hill and bring home something really special? A beautiful piece of artwork and a great memory!
Today we have a beautiful new painting by Heather Haynes, perfectly fitting for a quiet and foggy day like we have today. Have a relaxing day everyone!
With the cooler weather comes a new season, and a new landscape around us. The beauty of having seasons is so evident when we see them change from one to another and the best of each is revealed at their height. Here is a little seasonal change by Tom Kerwin!
Happy Halloween everyone! If you have little ones, or even not so little ones, have a safe and fun time tonight! It's always a treat to see all of the amazingly carved pumpkins out there, as well as some truly phenomenally decorated homes. Enjoy the treats, and remember to stay warm and dry! With spooky forests and late night adventures in mind, we have some stunning new artwork by Maya Eventov today. Who knows what you'll find in the woods once you venture inside!
