    Times Gone By Studio 


 Brent McGillivray and Maureen Bennett combine their unique styles to form the Times Gone By Studio.

 They offer beautiful, original art works, and high quality prints.

 The art gallery/studio at 48 Craig Street in Perth presents viewers with two distinct experiences – an evocative trip down memory lane,  and a fresh take on our beloved Canadian landscapes. 


About Brent McGillivray 


 Brent creates photo-realistic style paintings of vanishing landmarks;

 roadside restaurants; motels; abandoned buildings and disappearing

 urban and rural artifacts. His paintings explore the dynamic relationship

 between architecture and light capturing details such as the way the light

 filters through a window or the play of shadows on a wall.

 Brent is a graduate of:

 Architectural Technology at Algonquin College, Ottawa 

 Fine Arts at the Ontario College of Art, Toronto

 Printmaking at the Alberta College of Art, Calgary


  Brent brings a new collection of acrylic "Neon Art."  


About Maureen Bennett


 Utilizing the concepts of design learned from a history with stained glass and developing her signature style of vibrant colourful parallel  lines juxtaposed by simple forms and solid shapes outlined in white, Maureen’s acrylic paintings reinterpret classic iconic Canadian  landscapes in a contemporary, bold and graphic manner. 

 She finds inspiration from the Group of Seven and paints mainly from memory and the emotional experience of time spent in Algonquin, Georgian  Bay and the Western provinces with intuition guiding her colour choices and composition.


 Her paintings' evoke feelings of peace, solitude and quiet.

 This year Maureen continues to add to her “Red Canoe” series in which a red canoe is placed in varied distinctive Canadian landscapes.
