ARTISTS OF THE MONTH


RUBY ARTIST OF SEPTEMBER
PENNY WOODWORTH
"Before The Start" - Pastel

"I took up art about five years ago and chose pastel pencil and soft pastel because I enjoy colour and detail work and I also like to be able to pick up and set aside my project without any prep work or cleanup. The natural world and animals, both wild and domestic are my subjects." -- PENNY WOODWORTH

------------------------------------------------------------------------


SAPPHIRE ARTIST OF SEPTEMBER
LEAH DOCKRILL
"Duet" - Acrylic

"Crumpled paper has a mind of its own.  As a painting subject, it can claim to be abstract or realistic.  It can be affable: it can be stubborn.  It can defy political correctness; it can abandon all sense of propriety. In the words of William Shakespeare (as stated by Iago in the play “Othello”) and by Popeye the Sailor man, “I am what I am,” observes the crumpled paper." -- LEAH DOCKRILL

EMERALD ARTIST OF SEPTEMBER
MANUELA MOLDOVAN
"My Toronto" - Mixed media collage

"I am fascinated by the complexity and mastery of nature.  Full of energy, color and vitality, it is an infinite source of inspiration.  Over the years, I progressed from the traditional use of paint to mixed-media collage artworks, with a focus on a joyful color palette and concepts such as unity and the essence of life.  Self-taught and full of curiosity, I prefer working on large surfaces, using intuition and reflection and a variety of materials and layers.  My work is about the transition from reality to fantasy and about uplifting and warming up the human soul."
-- MANUELA MOLDOVAN

CRYSTAL ARTIST OF SEPTEMBER
FLORIS BETROUW
"Solitary Amazon Jaguar" - Acrylic, papier-mache

"My goal is to use papier-maché artworks to show the relationship of natural elements with each other and their environment.  My style invites viewers into the scene and forces them to consider nature in terms of color, form, shape and space.  To fully express my vision, my work has a bas-relief / 3D effect, which lifts certain elements to emphasize the spatial dynamics of the composition and reality.  Most pieces are drawn on canvas and glued on hardboard.  Paper is mixed with glue into a mud mass resulting in papier-maché, which is then mounted on the drawing, raised by a few pieces to create space.  When it is dried by the sun the painting work begins."
-- FLORIS BETROUW

TESTIMONIALS
"It is a huge honor to receive the first award of its kind, especially considering the high quality of work submitted by the other artists.  It is a fantastic show with a diverse range of both subject matter and media.  Because of this I am deeply grateful for this inaugural award.  You put on a very well-run, easy to enter show and it makes a world of difference for an artist to be associated with professionalism like this."
