Barbel Smith

Artist Statement: As an artist I want to meld and intersect the spiritual with the landscape we live in; to incorporate faith and its impact on art by illumination and light-filled canvases.  My inspiration is from the Canadian Group of Seven, particularly Lawren Harris’ middle period and his desire to enlighten, uplift and edify.  Art…

Joe Calleja

Artist Statement: My nature photography tends towards impressionistic abstraction. The image strikes a chord on an emotional level before we rationalize it.

His use of charcoal references the cave paintings of prehistory. The forms emerge as charcoal…

Robert Mounsteven

Artist Statement: I paint in oils, acrylics, and mixed media. My work is based upon energy created from the interplay of form and colour, and upon the flow created between surface areas.

The images are a continuous vocabulary based on the themes of homes, habitats, ecosystems, of people woven together with each other and with flora and fauna around them.
