First Floor Gallery - City Hall, Barrie - July 2 - August 31

In And Around The City

This exhibition is a celebration of local landscape inside and around the city. When I moved to Barrie a few years ago, I was amazed by the diversity of landscape right here within the city. There are woodlands, wetlands and waterfront parks, lively marina and street activity, historic and new buildings existing side by side. And then just outside and at the edge of the city I find rolling farmland, forests, trails and wide open vistas that look all the way to the escarpment. Through my work as a painter, I aim to record and share these moments of discovery and perhaps the excitement of living in such a diverse place as the City of Barrie.
