John Anderson

John Anderson says,
“Painting is pretty much like breathing for me now. I started at a young age copying the works of Glen Loates and Andrew Wyeth and it just grew from there with the increased exposure to more and more possibilities with paint. Northern and southern European impressionists along with some of the French and Dutch painters as well as North American impressionists all have left their mark on me.”

John is not only a prolific painter, he is also an accomplished art instructor.  He has taught for many years, and enjoys among others, teaching at the Haliburton School for the Arts and the Blue Mountain school of Landscape Painting.

Travel provides John with inspiration and is a very important aspect of his creativity.  John, enjoys instructing Plein Air classes and has taken guided tours in Tuscany, Provence, Avignon in the South of France and Newfoundland,

He has staged exhibitions in numerous galleries including The Mad and Noisy, Creemore, The Arts Gallery at the Distillery in Toronto and Double Door Gallery in Anten Mills..

Tanya Zaryski

I have worn regular paths through the landscape in which I live.  Like the deer and the foxes have their trails, so do I.  There are certain houses or fields I pass by, roads I travel, collecting them as markers and using them to mark my progress

Working from photographs snapped out the car window, I create panoramas of my countryside.  This format mirrors the long, drawn-out landscapes unfolding as my vehicle travels along the quiet roads.  I work as a chronicler seeking to capture how a place looks at a certain moment in time.  A still point to anchor us in the business that fills our days.

I work primarily as a painter, though sometimes also a glassblower, potter, and sculptor.  Living near Georgian Bay for almost 20 years has given me a deep love of the area and a  connection to the natural beauty of the landscape.  Currently living in Clarksburg, I have a home based gallery and studio space.  I share my life with my teenage son, 2 cats, and a flock of unruly chickens.
