Special Guest

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.

Special Guest

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.

Special Guest

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.

Special Guest

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.


Special Guest

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.
