“All Around the Town” by Sharon E. Steinhaus

I originally hails from Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. My memberships include PineRidge Arts Council, honourary member of the Oshawa Art Assoc. along with memberships at Whitby Station Gallery, Landscape Artists Int’l, VAC Bowmanville and McLaughlin Gallery, Oshawa.

I work in all media says the Oshawa artist, including oil, acrylic, watercolour, pastel, pen & ink and pencil, with acrylic being the current passion. Painting the local landscape in Durham Region, especially around the lakefront and surrounding area has been a central part of my work for the past few years.

Selections of my work can be seen on my website and also on-line at Fine Art America.

“Delightful Memories” by Jayshree Mina Daya

The Scarborough resident, has nurtured a lifelong love of creative expression through painting and design. Born and raised in Nairobi, Kenya, her art incorporates imagery of the nature and wildlife that she grew up surrounded by. Her love of beauty combines with her formal training in a Fine Art College in Mumbai, India, to create work that is fuelled by passion and steadied by technique.

Mina has been painting for more than 30 years. Her artistic pursuits have branched into fashion design, children's crafts, and embroidery and batiks. Her creative style is constantly evolving as she enjoys experimenting and painting freely, but finds herself inexorably returning to the medium of acrylic and watercolour painting. She worked as an art teacher in a Montessori School in Pickering, Ontario and continues to seek opportunities to learn and collaborate with other artists.

"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.

His upcoming show at the Ontario Power Generation's Information Centre from April 30th to June 25th will feature realistic, vibrantly coloured Fall scenes that were executed over the past year and a half.

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