Earlier this year I was invited to be the first featured artist in a series of exhibitions at The Framing Place & Gallery in Huntsville, Ontario. I stop in there often to see their great selection of frames. They are affiliated with the Algonquin Art Centre which is another great place to see some amazing art when traveling through Algonquin Park. Participating in this series offered a great opportunity to introduce my work to the surrounding area. Since I moved up here from Toronto in 2006, I have spent most of my time nestled away in the studio working away on portrait commissions and expanding my portfolio (as well as renovating the studio and gallery space). I haven’t had the time to get involved with anything in Muskoka and I saw this as a perfect place to showcase some of my landscapes as well as a mixture of other subjects, including some portraits and still life paintings. If you are anywhere near Huntsville from April 22 to May 19 stop in and take a look!
This is a Rembrandt reproduction I completed not too long ago. It is one of my favourites by the Master. I decided to leave it as part of the show displayed with some fantastic Dutch and Italian style frames. Here is a preview.
