Serving South Georgian Bay since 1975


Collaborative artists KIAM (KIel and AManda Wilson-Ciocci) and owners of Art in The Ward studied and received their BFA in Studio Art from the University of Guelph in 2010. The program allowed them to explore techniques in painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, and printmaking. After working separately for years but always commenting on each others work, it seemed a natural progression to complete a collaborative painting. Using thick layers of acrylic paint, gel mediums, photographs and washes, the result is a painting with two perspectives on one panel. We have brought our styles together to create work that focuses on collaboration, connection, slowing down and looking intensely at the world around us.
