About Brent McGillivray 

Born 1954, Wakefield, Quebec

A graduate of:

 Architectural Technology at Algonquin College, Ottawa 

Fine Arts at the Ontario College of Art, Toronto

I am currently a member of the Directors Guild of Canada and work as a set designer and art director in the film industry in Toronto from 1993 to the present.

I record through photography many vanishing historic sites and graphics. These inspire me to create paintings of disappearing urban and rural artifacts. By using a photo-realistic style with watercolours, gouache and acrylics the viewer is intrigued and drawn to the image for a closer study.           2018 brings a new collection of acrylic "Neon Art."  

 

About Maureen Bennett 

In 2014, after 30 years of working in quilting, stained and fused glass I broadened  my love with “colour” through a new medium…painting with acrylic. I envisioned expanding the principles of glass and fabric design into painting.

It is all about being unafraid of colour. I am fascinated by how the “bold lines” of different colours create depth and vibrancy.   I love the simplicity, of expressing in colour what cannot be spoken with words.  

Having spent time in Algonquin Highlands, Georgian Bay and Nova Scotia each distinctive landscape greatly influenced my paintings.

I am a self taught artist and my expertise and love for painting continue to grow on a daily basis as I create, design and experiment with acrylic.
