Glen Wallis art on display all month!

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.

Introducing Women’s Worx X 3

Published by

Tall Poppy is proud to present the works of three very talented artists, Gudrun Gallo, Judy Plomer and Mary Lou Ashton. Our cafe is full of the vibrant color and images of three distinctly different style. Join us for coffee or a meal or simple browse the display.

.

Gudrun Gallo

Gudrun (Finnbogadottir) Gallo was born in Iceland in 1964. She graduated from Durham College inOshawa, ON with a Graphic Design diploma in the mid 80’s. She worked as a design editor and art director for many well known National magazine publications and newspapers in Toronto, includingThe Toronto Star and The Globe and Mail National Newspaper before moving to the County in 2001 with her young family.

Gudrun has been painting for many years though more formally in the last ten years cultivating her own style in acrylic, and oil. Her work has been collected privately, though, can been seen publicly as well. Gudrun has displayed her art in various shows and galleries throughout South eastern Ontario.

“ I am continuously trying to broaden my approach to my art and my design work; to bring a fresh perspective to the subjects I paint and my chosen medium.

Judy Plomer

It was in the late 1990’s that Judy’s need to express her creative “Pisces” spirit began.

After many years in the Sales and Marketing field in the Toronto area she began to study professional artists in the Durham, Markham and Prince Edward County areas.

Judy marked her debut as an artist in 1999 when her work was accepted into the Prince Edward County “Art in the County” juried art show, an honour to be repeated many more times. Her work has been featured in numerous art shows, exhibitions and fundraisers throughout Ontario and her work is with collectors through out Canada. She is a member of the Prince Edward County Arts Council, the Arts on Main Gallery in Picton, the Sidestreet Gallery in Wellington and the Algonquin Expeditionary Group of Artists.

Judy loves to work in all mediums, especially fluid acrylics, oils, and pastels, always creating paintings of daring and exciting texture and design. Her artistic journey continues discovering new applications of creativity and expression.

Her home is in the Black River area of Prince Edward County where she is inspired daily by her peaceful, beautiful surroundings.

The saying on her studio wall says it all…….. “Imagine and Believe”.

.

Mary-Lou Ashton

Drawing and painting have been in Mary Lou’s life since she was a child. Her first careers in medical laboratory technology and, later, electron microscopy technologies have given her a wealth of images for her art. Having been somewhat self taught, she enrolled in visual art at York University receiving her BFA shortly before she retired to the County to follow her passion for art.

She works in multimedia both in realism and abstract.

Cafe open 7 days a week at 7am until 3pm (Friday and Saturday until 8pm)
