Now Showing: Anne Ireland

Published by

If you’ve been into the café in the last couple of weeks, you’ll have noticed new artwork on the walls. Anne Ireland, the owner of Iris Gallery in Bloomfield, will be showing for November and December. Below is a brief bio and samples of her artwork. All items are available for sale and 100% of the purchase price goes directly to the artist.

Bio: grew up dancing in a small town and quickly headed for the city…went to York University and later to Ontario College of Art, truly seeking knowledge; but it was only partly there. spent a year in Italy (Florence) as part of the OCA program and that’s when the real love affair with painting as expression and communication began.
Now, back in the country, I continue to draw inspiration from movement, poetry, nature and the mythologies that we share..or don’t.
I am not interested in “capturing” a moment but in “glimpsing” a moment. My paintings try to leave spaces and times where the viewer can become involved. Some days I see an angel…some days I see a horse!  Turning myself inside out to let you see in!
