A potter since forever it seems, and a crazy cat purrson to boot. Exhibited at almost all of the Arts in the Park since it started in 1970,including the first one. Go rained on almost as many times there,too. Still a bit mildewed,but worth it every time! Also at several Arts by the River in Amherstburg and Arts at the Marina in Leamington. Studied French and Spanish at the U of W, as well as some VisArt and Art History courses more recently. I use cone 6 stoneware clay on the wheel and use my own glazes as well as some commercial. Love to garden too. Changed my last name to honour my mom in 2019. Can't think of anything else...oh yes! Just discovered the Méchant Minou series, which are hilarious if you're a cat-o-phile. And Garfield en français!

The subjects of my work span from floral to landscape, portrait to abstract, still life to wildlife, all in very colourful palettes. I have a long history of designing and creating custom furniture and home accessories and therefore my work lends itself to the enhancement of the collector's environment. I hope you enjoy my work.

Seasoned through years of touring as a session guitarist and busking solo across Europe, Brendan combines subtle but intricate guitar playing and emotional storytelling for an intimate and immersive experience that is sure to quiet any room. His latest release, a full length album entitled "Summer Moons", sees Friel partner with Juno winning producer James Bunton.

Brodie MacPhail is a freelance artist living and working in Windsor. He graduated from the University of Windsor’s Fine Arts program in 2019, where he received the Mary Demarco Award for outstanding students. Since graduating, he has worked for a range of businesses and institutions local and international including, The University of Windsor Humanities Research Group, Incubator Arts Labs, Innocence Canada, and Adobe. Brodie’s art practice focuses primarily on the dichotomy between control and submission. This is often shown through the use of clean/ precise lines and shapes in contrast to organic textures. He plays with what elements are confined within visible and sometimes invisible borders. His work is centered around the balance of all those elements, and they’re often depicted in stark black and white to evoke a strong contrast. Brodie strives to grab the attention of the audience through bold shapes and then set their mind at ease through alignment, balance, and symmetry.

Carol Anne Winters
Celina Ineyici is an artist based in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.
My work centres around themes of domestic living, daily rituals, and ordinary private moments. Through the use of found objects and analog images I pull inspiration from patterns of light, natural colour palettes, and articles of home life to create oil paintings and mixed media work that aims to give the viewer the experience of seeing their own living routines in a new way. The intention of my work is to create paintings using a thick bodied paint in order to provide a new way of seeing supposedly mundane routines. When our everyday rituals become disrupted we find ourselves clinging to a sense of routine. I like to build my pieces by combining personal experiences of contentment with an underlying sense of tension. Before the Sun Rises, 7:35am (2020) combines these two feelings by linking cold, reflective bathroom textures with the warm form of hot coffee pouring into a mug. During this recent period of isolation, I gather ideas from the home around me. Patterns of morning and afternoon light throughout the day heavily influence the forms, colours, and reflections in my paintings. In order to lose control a bit I mix my oil paint to a thick, oily texture. Doing this creates a challenge when I’m painting; it allows accidental lumps of paint to coincide with intentional brushstrokes to create balance. Pleasure (2018) explores the comfort of home through symbols of domestic living, such as socks, buttons, flowers, coffee cups, pillows, etc. By connecting relaxation with an feelings of discomfort, I aim to create something that is easily accessible for people to relate to.

Dennis K. Smith
“Each of us will have something to say and each of us will have our own way of saying it ,but when we take the time to stand still to view the works of God’s hands, we all should listen” Dennis K. Smith Artist, Dennis K. Smith’s distinctive style of painting, results in works that come alive through sensitive and lyrically applied brushwork and vivid choreographed passages of color. For over sixty years, Dennis has been visually vocalizing not only his story but all those who find themselves connected by the subject matter that is depicted within in his work. Art for Dennis must have reason for its creation. If his artistic approach and intent could be characterized in vocal styling terminology, he would consider himself a "crooner." an ironic term denoting an emphatically sentimental depiction of his subjects. It has been noted that his work projects honesty, simplicity and serenity that causes one to pause and connect. Smith believes that the success of a work of art is a result of how well the artist can transform an emotional experience into its visual equivalent. http://www.dksstudiogallery.com/gallery.html

I’m an emerging ceramic artist living in southwestern Ontario, smack in the heart of the ceramics hub of Canada. Ceramic is a complex medium that demands one’s undivided attention at every level of its manipulations and transformations, where one piece requires days or weeks of work and diligence; this medium is in complete sync with how my brain is wired. The complexity of the medium in all its combinations of raw materials for bodies compositions and surface development (I do not use premixed glazes) demands research and testing that I find very exciting; it's a delightful challenge I constantly bask into, and the results are gratifying. Unlike most ceramic artists, my focus on the surface of my works is paramount. My appreciation for the medium is such that I put forward its many elemental, geological qualities. My surfaces are dry and matte; they absorb light and consequentially show depth, they are inviting to the touch, and have a more grounded presence. When working on functional ware, my works retain a lot of the raw aspect of the material.

James comes from Melbourne, Australia where he was submerged in its creative juices. As a teenager he often frequented The Blender Studios, where he was exposed to all types of art and creatives. Years later, he got a studio there for himself where he explored different mediums and techniques, favouring zines, animation and murals. It was around this time that artist Regan Tamanui (who’s work is collected by the National Gallery of Australia) offered James a Mentorship. James learnt stencilling, experimentation between mediums and very basic admin at this time. In 2017 the two had a residency in Queenstown, Tasmania, where the two created a body of work together that would become a touring exhibition titled Sequence. James had used this time to create stencil animations that merge two time consuming, monotonous tasks (cutting stencils, and drawing animation frames) to create his contribution. After this, back in Melbourne, he created his first solo exhibition shown at Bside Gallery and the title piece from that show was featured in “Arts Guide Australia” (a nationwide magazine that shows off contemporary art shows happening around the country). It is also worth noting that around this time James had started an educational role at Blender Studios where he took to doing city wide educational tours and workshops where he taught schoolchildren and tourists the positive impacts of art in an urban environment. Three solo exhibitions later, James moved to Canada in an attempt to stress out his mother and explore a new creative landscape.

Laura Horne Gaul
I am a local artist originally from Halifax/Dartmouth, Nova Scotia but now live in the Town of Lakeshore, Ontario. I have a lifelong passion for the arts and I have been doing oil and watercolour paintings for over 50 years. I like to manly paint landscapes and seascapes of places in Canada and the United States in a realistic style using vibrant colours. All my paintings are original using my own subject matter or from photographs others have provided with their permission to use in a commissioned painting or for my reference as a composition I would like to paint. I have recently started painting still life paintings and enjoy the challenge they present. All my still life paintings are original works of art using my own setup to do the painting. I mainly do my paintings in “alla prima” which means wet on wet so they are usually completed in one day but sometimes two with the paint still wet. I belong to several Facebook Art Groups with an international membership. I routinely post my paintings to these pages and have received many complimentary remarks on the quality of my work. I can be contacted on my Facebook page Oil Paintings by L. A. Nause or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am a member of the Arts Council - Windsor & Region, Windsor, Ontario.
My art has been focused on exploring new methods and techniques for creating framed panels made of glass and metal. I use recycled glass containers and found objects combined with conventional stained glass raw materials in my pieces. Traditional Tiffany-style copper foil stained glass techniques are used to assemble, while copper sheets, wire and other objects add a sculptural, 3-dimensional element. I am unendingly inspired by organic shapes found in nature with a strong preference for asymmetry. I enjoy using the natural grain of the glass to enhance visual movement coupled with distinct line-work to create and enhance the flow in my designs. I find this medium captivating as it is ever-changing depending on the surrounding light. The cast light and reflections from the panels onto surrounding surfaces creates another dimension which compliments and reinforces the piece. I have a strong fascination and great respect working with such delicate, unforgiving and potentially dangerous materials.

I find inspiration in the beauty of nature. As a young man I worked on ships, hitchhiked, and travelled by buses and trains in order to make my way around the world. Much of what I experienced visually and emotionally makes its way into my paintings. I paint the landscape with the hope that, by depicting the beauty of Creation, others will remember that feeling of awe and peace that we often experience when we stop to watch a sunset, to observe the play of light dancing on water, or when we take the time to observe sun and shadow sweeping across a valley. My work has been published in in the Plein Air Magazine, Acrylic Artists Magazine, AcrylicWorks 4-Captivating Color, AcrylicWorks 5-Bold Values, The Artists Magazine, The International Artist Magazine, Blank Spaces Magazine, Practique des Arts (French publication), the Art to Art Palette, and numerous online art blogs. I have had the good fortune to have won awards in internationally recognized shows including The National Oil and Acrylic Painters Best of America Shows, the International Society of Acrylic Painters shows, the Plein Air Salon, the Artists Magazine, and the Art Muse Contest. I am a Signature Member of, and on the Board of Directors for the “National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society” and a member of the Board of Directors for “Artcite”, a nationally recognized artist run gallery in Windsor Ontario, where I live. I am also a Signature Member of the “International Society of Acrylic Painters”, and a member of the Oil Painters of America.

Vera Graham obtained her science degree at the U of Windsor but most of her life was spent in Calgary, AB learning about art. She read to understand the various art movements, the history of artists and studied their works to learn their techniques and what set their work apart from others. For fourteen years she worked along side her mentor, Tzak, a prolific and skilled portrait painter. Together they worked from live models which served to increase her confidence and concentration. Entering her 30th year of study using acrylic paints to tell her story, she has shifted her interest to painting outdoors so she can capture the true beauty of her natural surroundings, which once again is Essex County. Some people watch, some people chat and others find their way into her stories of contoured shapes, somber colours and moody emotion. Telling painted stories brings her a calm and inner peace.

I have been involved with the Windsor-Essex Theatre community for over a decade. I have taken on various roles in my involvement - Acting, Singing, Set Design/Build, Stage Tech. I'm looking to the future in which the Windsor Essex Arts community holds a reputation in places other than the home we know and love. With specific reference to the Theatre Community I'm so proud of - it takes a lot to put on a show and have it be well attended. Windsor has a reputation as a lunchbucket town, with little culture. With the appropriate drive and support this can change, and I want to be on the driving side of that change.
