“A Walk In The Glen”
Currently showing at the gallery, Williams Mill Visual Arts Center
Nestled on the banks of the Credit Williams, the hamlet of Glen Williams has provided inspiration for artists working in many media. Currently showing in the Williams Mill Visual Art Center’s gallery, “A Walk In The Glen” is a selection of forty paintings by five of the Williams Mill’s painters; Ken Logue, Simon MacDonald, Margaret Peter, Candace Slack and Jo Walterson.
The artists chose scenes in the village to create brilliant works in oil, acrylic, watercolour, and pen and ink. Unique synergies have been created when a single subject has been tackled by two of the artists, rendering different perspectives. The subjects themselves range from the heritage buildings, to everyday street scenes, to views of the Credit River. The show runs from September 09 to October 12 with a “meet the artists” evening from 05:00 P.M. to 09:00 P.M., Friday, September 25. The Gallery is open from noon until 5 P.M.; Wednesday through Sunday. For more details or directions, please call the gallery at (905) 873-8203 or visit us on the web at www.williamsmill.com.
The Williams Mill is recognized by tourists and art buyers alike as a must experience destination for viewing and purchasing art. A thriving arts community unlike any other, The Mill allows visitors to interact and connect with professional artists at work and to ask questions about the art itself. At The Mill you may buy directly from an artist or studio and meet many artists in person at one location. Visiting The Mill affords an opportunity to see a finished product, but also to experience the work in progress, along with the tools, and space that helped bring the piece to life. The Mill is an ideal destination for a family outing because it enables children to see and experience art.
