the artists

Barbara Alkemade

Like most people these days, there are a lot of pages to my book. Born in Seaforth, now living just north of London, a Western grad, married with three wonderful children and three grandkids, wonderful in their own right. Various work throughout the years, notably, teacher of English and Philosophy, aerobics queen (TNT Fitness), rider for Team Canada ( medals!). Played piano in my youth and am now learning alto saxophone. So much fun. My paintings rely heavily on life experience and are exhibited throughout Ontario from Toronto to Windsor.

Cathy Burgoyne

Cathy is a lifelong resident of London Ontario and is primarily a self-taught artist. She is currently a member of The Central Ontario Art Association, the Colour Pencil Society of America, Gallery Painting Group, and the Art Gypsies Collective painting group and has received her Creative Arts Certificate from Fanshawe College in London Ontario.

The process of mixing colours and watching a painting unfold brings an idea to life. Nature and landscapes inspire her. Her work is about ideas and the use of photography enables her to capture commonplace and then create a sense of place and experience on canvas. Current mediums include acrylic, pan pastels, and colour pencil.

Cathy works in a variety of disciplines as divergent as abstract and figurative; her work brings a combination of insight and emotional force. Interested in the expression and conceptual dialogue between the dual role of subject and artist—its ability to capture qualities of energy, colour, and fluidity to arrive at what might be considered the uniqueness of an image.

Annette Dutton

Annette paints with emotion and colour to connect and sometimes to stir the viewer’s imagination, perhaps, at times, to laugh at humour in art form, or to dance the way of the heart.

Annette is the former owner, The Art Shak, 1992;  then Gallery 609, 2017, representing 15 artists in six themed rooms, on three levels of gallery. Currently, Annette is the founder of the mobile art gallery Art Gypsies Collective, 2017/2019, group of five artists.

Annette signs her art ‘gypsy’ as she is one by European lineage. Annette was a  Juror, London Arts Council, Visual Arts Jury, on behalf of the City of London, 2019. Annette’s painting ‘Coronavirus Fear Explodes On Planet Earth ’was  juried into publication Breaking Boundaries by Editorial Team of eight, including Western University, and representing five countries (Canada, U.S., United Kingdom, Columbia and Brazil) published 2021.

Ruth Mackie

I am an acrylic and watercolour artist. I also love to needle felt with wool. I spent a lot of time on Canada’s west coast, so I developed a deep love of nature. Nothing could be more satisfying for me than being on a beach and painting what I see as I listen to the waves roll ashore. I also love to paint people’s best friends: of course, that would be our puppies. I love it when I finish a commission and see a sincere smile on their face. Painting or working with wool are the absolutely best ways I love to spend my time.

Lynne Pinchin

Lynne enjoys painting Landscapes, Beaches and Water scenes, using primarily Acrylic Medium. Much of her inspiration comes from the travels and sports activities of her family. Being primarily a fitness enthusiast, Lynne finds art and painting to be an enjoyable and peaceful creative diversion from her everyday life. She has a unique and recognizable technique seen in the paintings of her skies and clouds. Hopefully you will enjoy her paintings as much as she enjoys creating them.

Judy Stirling

Judy began painting about 12 years ago. Her passion for art developed out of a desire for increased mindfulness. Painting expresses her desire to see the beauty of the world around us and look at familiar objects as if for the very first time. Her work has been accepted into a number of art shows throughout Ontario.  She lives in London with her husband.  In addition to painting, she also enjoys music, bridge, gardening, golfing, and her faithful spaniel, Toby. Judy works in oils and acrylics and describes her style as eclectic. She has been a student of London artists Cheryl O, Kim Harrison, and Margaret Rossiter, as well as Huntsville artist, Terry Gill and Montreal artist, Ljubomir Ivankovic.

The Artists

Janice Howell

I have loved drawing since childhood and completed a Graphic Arts diploma in college. Since then my career directed me into the academic world of neuropsychology yet I still took time to dabble in art. I became a member of the ‘Gallery Painting Group’, an outdoor painting group, in 2012 and I haven’t looked back since. As an active environmentalist, painting ‘plein air’ complements my appreciation of nature. I also enjoy painting still life and folk art. I am fortunate to be one of the four ‘SHADY Artists’ who are energetic, colourful and have a great variety of artistic styles. I am also an associate member of the ‘Portside Gallery’ in Port Stanley. For two summers I spent a week on the Toronto Islands painting with a group of very creative and fun loving artists. I’m grateful to have received juror’s choice awards in 2012, 2014 and 2019 with the Gallery Painting Group. My ‘Springbank in Winter’ painting was chosen for the cover of the Advisory Committee on the Environment (City of London) brochure. My works have been exhibited in group shows at the annual Gallery Painting Group shows, the Westland Gallery, the Portside Gallery, the Braywick Bistro, the London Arts Council, Panache Gallery, Paint Ontario, TAP (the ARTS Project), Revive Restaurant, Aeolian Hall and the Fringe Gallery.

Sandi McCabe

I have loved art all my life and feel so fortunate that in my retirement , I can dive in and paint!  My absolute favourite thing to do is to paint outside (plein air) whether it be in London , Toronto Island or Florida in the winter …. the beauty of what I see intrigues me so much! . I have been passionate about my art for a dozen years in fact, I loose myself in the process of getting it just right on the canvas!  My favourite thing to paint is a landscape especially if water is involved or flowers or trees.
I paint quickly, mostly in acrylics which I love.  They are so vibrant, so forgiving and so easy to use!  I have shown my work in many galleries and art shows.  I am part of The Shady Artist Group in London and paint twice a week with The Gallery Painting Group in London as well as with 3 groups in Florida.  It is my sincere pleasure to show my art once more at The Aeolian Hall.

Michele Haley

I am a London, Ontario artist who grew up in Quebec City where I attended Ecole des Beaux Arts. Because of early initiation and inheriting the family art gene, painting has become a necessity, a passion and a source of peace. Joining the Gallery Painting Group a few years ago led me to discover the joy of painting on location while connecting closely with nature. All the elements of plein air, from hot muggy weather with bugs to a warm summer breeze in the morning sunlight, create a mood that is the foundation of most of my work. My primary goals are simplicity and serenity giving me a mysterious feeling of creating magic. My work consists mainly of London and area landscapes in oil, completed on location. I also have used acrylic, watercolour and pastels. Always eager to learn new techniques and approaches by different instructors, I continue to attend workshops and classes sponsored by various art groups and schools.
