Gallery will be open Sunday for this special event
My approach to art is similar to my approach to life: I relish variety. My formal education was decidedly un-artistic; degrees in sociology and criminology led to years of highly analytical work. Meanwhile, a part of me yearned for something more expressive, and I found myself drawn to painting (in particular, to portraiture), with a nagging certainty that “I can do that”. I was fortunate to come under the tutelage of master portraitist Bob Gerbracht whose instruction was in pastel, a medium that I immediately embraced for its vibrancy and spontaneity.
Artist Maurade Baynton
Artwork in the Gallery
Maurade Baynton's artwork magically captures the personality of her subjects, whether a mischievous litter of puppies, or the innocence of children exploring their world. She is inspired to tell the visual story of fleeting moments, and her work is based primarily on her own experiences with anything living or breathing. Even the delicate petals of a flower inspire her to recreate its beauty.
Based in the Edmonton region, Baynton has won numerous awards throughout an art career spanning decades, including having her artwork selected by the Royal Canadian Mint for coin designs in 2014 and 2015.
Robert Bateman's Canada
A new book release plus view photos from the event
Robert Bateman has been a keen artist and naturalist from his early days. He has always painted wildlife and nature, beginning with a representational style, moving through impressionism and cubism to abstract expressionism. In his early 30’s he moved back to realism as a more suitable way to express the particularity of the planet. It is this style that has made him one of the foremost artists depicting the world of nature.
