So many of us have been craving a change of scenery and the inspiration that travel can bring. The works in this show remind us that renewal can take many forms, whether it’s looking out the window, returning to your favourite vacation photos or gazing at vase of flowers on the table. Here, the artist’s skill and imagination bring new life to seemingly familiar scenes, providing lasting inspiration. 

 

 

About Screen Time

With the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic, we’ve moved the annual Artist Project show to a nine-week series of online exhibitions, running April 1 - June 2, 2021. Every Thursday at noon, a new themed exhibition launches featuring seven artists with a daily artist feature on our social media channels. From painting and drawing, to sculpture, prints and photography, the shows will support an incredible breadth of work, all available for sale directly from the artists.  During this time when we’re spending so much time at home, consider supporting an independent artist and treating yourself to a fresh perspective with an original work of art.

Canadian landscape has inspired Gordon Harrison's work and his life. As a boy growing up in Quebec, unable to speak but able to express himself drawing landscapes, the beauty of the Laurentian Mountains became the artist's inner voice and led to his career as a celebrated landscape painter. Today, Harrison offers art retreats at his property in the Laurentians.

A self-taught artist who has forged her own path, Jennifer draws on her expertise in floral design to inform her work. The result is a distinct style that dances between the tension of fine details and loose brushstrokes of vibrant colour and light. Inspired by Canadian landscapes, she brings narratives to life for the viewer to find themselves in.
