Introducing Robert McAffee
His paintings portray an intimate vision of the Canadian wilderness that’s alive, brooding and rhythmic. With their backdrop of endless northern skies, his canvasses sing with poetic vigour and blaze with the vibrant colours of nature. A self-taught artist Robert has been inspired by inspired by Tom Thomson, Jack Reid and Claude Monet.
“I’ve always had a desire to draw and paint our country’s forest landscape. It’s in my bones,” says Robert McAffee. “This passion has taken me from the North Shore of Lake Superior, to the four corners of Algonquin Park, and from Canada’s Rocky Mountains to the scenic highlands of Quebec’s Gatineau Park”.
Felter Pam Carnochan and metalworker Deb Harkness are inspired by the landscape of Muskoka. Working together, Pam and Deb are combining their respective medias to create work that celebrates fibre and steel.
The Chapel Gallery, is open Tuesday to Saturday, 10am-1pm and 2pm-5pm
