Each Friday during the summer different RHGA member artists will begin their one week art residency at the Mill Pond Gallery. Visit daily and see the artist’s technique and how the work progresses. A closing reception will be held each Thursday evening coinciding with the Town of Richmond Hill Concert in the Park at the Mill Pond.

Week 1 – Josephine Sherman 

Friday, July 1 to Thursday, July 7JosephineSAiR

Josephine describes her work as being inspired from nature. In her artist statement, she writes, “Feeling the force of nature, sometimes gentle, other times strong and powerful, I am aware of being alive and of being a part of something bigger and beyond.” She often begins her work on site, and completes the details and finishing touches in the studio. During the week, Josephine will be working primarily with watercolour on large and small landscapes, and will also experiment with oil and acrylic as well, often painting “en pleine air” when the weather permits.

 

Week 2 – Lesley Block and Heather Hennick 

Friday, July 8 to Thursday, July 14

Lesley’s passion is colour. This is well portrayed in her vibrant, creative artwork.
Lesley is an intuitive artist. It comes from within and finds itself on the canvas.

Art and Travel

One of Greg’s passions is travel to interesting destinations, and his other passion is his art, so it seemed reasonable to combine the two. During the week Greg will be working in a variety of mediums, including pencil, watercolour and pastel as he tries to capture the spirit and place of the many fascinating destinations that he has had the opportunity to visit.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 Echos of the LandscapeAndreaAiR

There is growing evidence that being in, near, or on the water reduces stress.  People are drawn to waterscapes. We react emotionally to paintings including water scenes and express feeling calm and joy.
Andrea’s offering is a window with a view that inspires to pause, disconnect and be present.

ExpressionsAliveSH

Silvija’s inspiration comes in visualizing the lines, shapes, and colours that can be derived from landscape and floral subjects. Broad brush strokes characterize her interest in abstraction, while preserving a recognizable subject. Silvija will be working primarily with acrylics in an expressive approach to painting.
