Catherine Howard – In the Window on Broadway

catherinehowardCatherine Howard’s ambition is to portray the everyday beauty around us, to draw attention to the minutiae of life, to chase that elusive light, to capture not just a moment, but a part of a story – stories of people and places that can be enjoyed over and over.

The three separate series that I am currently working on are the ever changing and delightful Mill Creek in Orangeville, a narrative story of a fictitious couple, Jack and Anna and also a series portraying my interpretations of scenes from the Narnia books by C. S. Lewis.

Colour is an obsession and Catherine constantly experimenting and learning. Working primarily in acrylics on stretched canvas, many of the paintings are done entirely with a palette knife, some with brush and others with a combination of both.

Finding inspiration all around her, in music, in a favourite book this collection showcases Catherine’s work.

Penny for Your Thoughts | Found Art Festival

Penny-for-your-thoughts
A penny for your thoughts … the one cent piece (penny) was minted from 1858 to 2012. The maple leaf design was used from 1937, except on the 1967 Centennial commemorative penny featuring a special reverse side – a rock dove. It only seems right that we have honoured artist Alex Coville’s design in the Found Art Festival.

From “aww” to “awe”, Ron’s images evoke a full range of emotions. Whether it’s new born turtles emerging from the nest, majestic trumpeter swans at dawn or the powerful young bull shaking the sleet from his coat … he captures stories that delight and inspire.
