Thanks to Fenelon Falls counsellor Carl Quaranto we started the Fenelon Station Gallery 8 years ago and are still running a variety of local art in this historical building.
We take turns to do “gallery sitting” and that is a wonderful time to meet locals and visitors to our beautiful area.
If time permits, most of us also use that day to create our specific art form, so if you drop in you could see original paintings being done or wood carvings created etc etc.
Since the start of our local art gallery, we have had approx. 60 different artists participating and selling their unique arts.
I paint mainly in oils and enjoy to paint flowers and landscapes in the thick layers .
After my trip to Iceland early this summer, I got lots of inspiration for paintings and have painted icebergs in acrylic in all sizes and shapes. Would love to go back to Iceland and re – experience its magical nature and warm lagoons again.!
Another venue for art lovers will happen during Labour Day Weekend when the 24th annual Kawartha Arts Festival will take place at Fenelon Fairgrounds.
Many of the artists from Station gallery will also show at that Festival. Some not.. so if you visit both places during Labour Day weekend you will be sure to get your art cravings looked after!
Hope to see you there!
