Conrad Beaubien’s 32 Works on display!

Published by

32 Works

The idea of medium I interpret to be in its highest sense: That is a go-between. A go-between the dimension of the human spirit and that of dimensions beyond.  Being open to materials – mediums- that come my way invites the alchemy of chance in making seen what is unseen.

Conrad Beaubien

Bio:

Following a career in network television, Conrad’s independent credits of creator, writer, director and producer include the award-winning Sketches of Our Town series. After decades of chasing the moonlight and scouring the land in search of stories, he now holes up in a cabin on the banks of Slab Creek in Prince Edward County. He chases the moonlight still. He grabs hold of words, paint, steel—mediums close at hand in a faithful try to connect the dots of the universe. Conrad is a regular contributor to The Timesof Wellington as well as Watershed Magazine. He recently launched Back of Hoards Station, his latest work for stage.

New show on display Glen Wallis, come in and check it out!

Published by

Glen Wallis

Wallis enjoys experimenting with different materials and processes whenever he gets the chance. Mixed Media holds a natural attraction for him as a result. A graduate of the University of British Columbia with a diploma in Art History along with a degree in sociology, Glen lives in a house in which all members of the family are engaged in the arts including his wife, encaustic artist Susan Wallis.

Glen is committed to increasing his artistic output in the coming year and enjoys spending more time on works that explore the connection between art and mass production fabrication.   Inspired by the Russian born, American Sculptor Louise Nevelson’s work of the mid 20th century, Wallis uses discarded objects and cast-off scraps in these recycled sculptural works. Commissioned wall compositions also included specific items provided by clients.  Using variations of the cube as the groundwork for his compositions, Wallis creates notable wall-like, collage driven reliefs.  Wallis’s work will also be on display for the first time during the Interior Design Show in Toronto January 22-25th 2015.

VINEYARDS

Artist Roger Scannura was born on the history drenched Mediterranean Island of Malta and was tutored by Franciscan Monks in art restoration.  His inspiration for vineyards and wine culture come from his many travels to Spain, the Napa Valley and Prince Edward County.  He presently divides his time between Prince Edward County and Toronto as he is on the faculty of York University and teaches flamenco guitar.  Roger pursues both of his loves:  music and art and is one of Canada’s pre-eminent flamenco guitarists having produced 8 CD’s of original flamenco music.  He has performed in concerts and festivals worldwide with  his performance ensemble Ritmo Flamenco.   Roger also attained a strong graphic arts career creating some well-known logos for several Canadian clothing companies and participated in designing Olympic logos for USA, Canada and Great Britain.
