From Beyond the Past
Maple 8.5 x 3.5
Douglas Fisher’s beautiful west coast-inspired wood sculptures stand out for their impeccable design, carving and workmanship.
I have long been fascinated with the art of indigenous cultures from around the world. Upon first inspection most of it seems so simple and yet at the same time is very powerful. – Douglas Fisher
Maple 9 x 3.5
Standing On A Ledge
Acrylic & charcoal on canvas 48 x 36
My work is always changing which gives me the pleasure to experiment and to move forward. The final colour constellations invite the viewer to find their own personal experience of my pieces. I believe that that’s what art should do. – Marianne Meyer
Just In Time
Acrylic & charcoal on canvas 24 x 24
Silent Rounds (Swooping Owl)
Brazilian Soapstone 8 x 20 x 16
With retirement on the horizon, Nancy Street’s collection of soapstone sculptures will be her last in the gallery.
Born in Ontario, Nancy was raised near the shores of Lake Huron, where she first developed her love and appreciation for nature.
Brazilian Soapstone 23 x 18 x 12
Working with soapstone for over 30 years, Nancy’s graceful and flowing forms pay tribute to this stunning stone. Intrigued by the play of light and shadow, she invites the viewer in sharing her romance with all things natural.
Taking Flight (Diving Eagle)
Brazilian Soapstone 18 x 14 x 9
In my youth, one of my favourite pastimes was taking my canoe up the little creek early in the morning, past the beaver dam and willows into the lake. It always felt like a magical time and place to me – this was the inspiration for many of my sculptures. – Nancy Street
