Night Works: by Michael Dobson

August 12 to September 16, 2011

A Quiet Summer Evening" Oil on Masonite

Michael Dobson's paintings exist in the mysterious and magical world of darkness that the night brings. Setting forth to paint long after the sun has set he paints scenes he can only dimly see with paint he cannot see. When he returns with a painting to examine it under the light he is always surprised. 

He wants to be surprised. In a recent interview Michael was asked if he visualizes a painting in his mind before he begins to work. Without hesitation he replied "No. If I could see the finished product in my mind I wouldn't bother painting it. It's the act of doing it, not the planning and doing it that I enjoy.

The Temiskaming Art Gallery invited local florists and nurseries to design floral arrangements inspired by a painting from this exhibition. On Wednesday July 12th, beautiful floral arrangements were featured in the Temiskaming Art Gallery. 

Carnival: The Spirit and the Soul

MaskCarnival: The Spirit and the Soul is a multi-media exhibition using theatrical narrative and the mask as an element of storytelling common to most cultures throughout the world. Curators Teodoro Dragonieri and Christopher Jackson included carnival and theatrical masks, photography, and mixed media works. Many of the works relate to concepts of the mask as metaphor, transformative medium and physical object. The goal is to engage our visitors and prompt dialogue about the evolution and continued social relevance of the Carnival tradition and its parallels with today's artistic practice.

Peter Sibbald: Elegy for a stolen land

Sutton, Ontario based professional photographer Peter Sibbald has watched with growing concern as the countryside that he grew up with has been permanently altered for massive housing developments that have spread and continue spreading north of Toronto.

The photographs in this show document these changes and some of their less known but very important and disturbing consequences.

Pallette and Brush Annual Show 2011

Margaret Young

February 4, 2011 to March 18, 2011

Have you ever seen artists repeatedly squint as they gaze at an outdoor scene they are painting? This is because when you squint it limits the amount of light and detail that you see and it is much easier to judge the various shades of black and white (values) of a particular scene. In past shows of the Palette and Brush Club the focus has been on colour and the club decided the focus this year would be on value; that is, the rendering of a scene in black and white.
