Cheryl Helferty and Harry Fraser

Harry Fraser

"Recent Works" by Harry Fraser

Harry was born in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia, but raised and educated in Toronto where he studied and graduated from the Ontario College of Art. "My interest began at an early age, became a passion and shows no sign of abating." His favourite medium is acrylics.

Over the years Harry has painted a broad range of subjects but his favorite has always been the rugged natural scenery of the Kawarthas. While exploring its many lakes and rivers during camping and canoeing trips, he found that its vast and gorgeous diversity offered a virtually limitless source of material for artistic expression.

AWARDS: C.S.Band O.C.A Admission Scholarship (1966) |

Cheryl Helferty

Cheryl Helferty (Sheri) is a Canadian artist. Her artwork is in many private collections around Central and Southern Ontario.

She prefers to work in the style of surrealism. Her unique paintings are dedicated to the intricate details and colors of Canada’s landscape and peoples.

Throughout decades of painting, Cheryl produced figurative work, still life, folklore, mythologies, family portraits and landscapes. She has the ability to combine these various interests into works of authority and visual appeal. Cheryl’s images are expressed in the medium of traditional oil.
