We're delighted to welcome Ann Robinson this month. Ann enjoys creating with colour. Her journey began when she learned to paint with watercolours at OCA, now OCAD. Her summers were spent painting outdoors, in Toronto, Northern Ontario and Grand Manan in New Brunswick.
Recently she has delighted in the versatility of acrylics and oils. As part of her journey she has been inspired to use collage, after taking a course at The Haliburton School of the Arts. After moving to Whitby from the Beach in Toronto her love of painting was given a boost.
She has met many accomplished artists at the Station Gallery in Whitby and as a member of the Ajax Creative Arts Centre and the Oshawa Art Association. Ann has been encouraged to bring to the public's attention, in group and juried shows, the many facets of her creative spirit.
This is the first solo exhibition of her journey from watercolours to acrylics, oils and collage. You can meet Ann in-person at a reception on Friday October 27th from 5 – 7 pm.
