DAPHNE GRIFFITHS

Paintings by Daphne Griffiths

Griffiths–now in her 85th year–enjoys painting because of the colours she incorporates and the satisfaction she gets from doing something creative. She obtained her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the age of 75. She achieves depth in her paintings using a palette knife and allowing four to five layers of acrylic paint to show through. Griffiths loves it when people say they can relate to her work. And they do.

JANE MACMILLAN

Paintings in watercolour/ink and acrylic/ink by Jane MacMillan

Jane Blanch MacMillan was born in England in 1946 and graduated from the Legat School of Russian Ballet in 1964. After touring with London’s Harlequin Ballet Company for three years, she emigrated to Canada in 1969. Although a teacher of classical ballet by profession, she has recently become increasingly absorbed in producing visual art using watercolor or acrylic together with pen and ink, and is primarily self-taught. She has found inspiration during visits to various communities in Nunavut. Cape Dorset, off Baffin Island, became the catalyst for her first body of work with its open expanses of tundra, Arctic flora, multicolored rock, deep blue water and glacial scenes tinged with low hovering sunsets and sunrises.

THE JOY OF PAINTING

Paintings by the students of Steve Fick

This show highlights the developing talent of a number of new and more experienced painters in our community, all of whom have taken classes with Steve Fick. The classes, taught here in Old Ottawa East, focus on supporting each artist on his or her unique journey of discovery and expression. The result is a surprising variety of styles and approaches – landscapes, still lifes, portraits and abstracts in oil, acrylic, and watercolour.

Also included in the exhibit will be work of the instructor, Steve Fick. www.fick.ca.
