RoseMarie Condon

La Cloche in White (oil on canvas)

RoseMarie Condon often explores wilderness areas and rural settings throughout Ontario. From her studio in Fenelon Falls she enjoys having ready access to the natural world and rural communities. RoseMarie uses on-location sketches in pencil or watercolour as well as photographs to refresh her visual memory when studio painting the fleeting affects of light and atmospheric moods of nature.

Plein air painting and life drawing at the Kawartha Arts Network are two of RoseMarie’s greatest interests. There is no better way to keep eye, hand coordination honed.

A tireless promoter of the importance of the arts RoseMarie was recently honoured to be declared the City of Kawartha Lakes 2016 “Artist of the Year”.

Poppies (oil on canvas)

Maud Skoog discovered her passion for painting after taking some classes in folk art painting. After years painting on wood, she turned to oil on canvas for her flower and landscape scenes. Classes taken at Haliburton School of Fine Arts and Gallery on the Lake have inspired her as well as travels in Europe and views of sunsets from her home on Cameron Lake.

Her paintings may be seen at Fenelon Station Gallery, Kawartha Arts Festival (labour day weekend in Fenelon Falls), Victoria County Studio Tour in the fall, Art on Kent in Lindsay and several other locations in Fenelon Falls.

Please contact Maud Skoog to make an appointment to visit her studio.

Resurrection Wave (photograph)

Doug Saunders has never had any formal training as an artist. He prefers to create art, music and photography intuitively.

“The creative energy of the whole universe floats by us constantly and is there for all of us to dial into. Our body is the receiver and our senses, the tuning forks. We know when the station comes in clearly.”

Doug is responsible for hiring figure models for life drawing sessions for the KAN organization.

Stan Wojtaszek

Lindsay Afternoon (photograph)

Stan Wojtaszek has had a fascination with photography from his earliest childhood. He received his first camera at the age of twelve, using it to preserve memories of family and friends. Shortly after entering the full time workforce, he purchased a 35 mm camera and his education, and passion, for the medium flourished. Living in the far northern reaches of Ontario, he naturally gravitated toward landscape and nature photography, documenting the beauty of the land around him.

Early in the new millennium, he began to tinker with the relatively new digital medium. Over the past seven years his conversion is completed. Although still enjoying his surroundings, he is beginning to turn more toward creating a more artistic exploration of his vision.

More of his work may be seen at http://stan-wojtaszek.artistwebsites.com/

Stan is actively involved with KAN. He currently sits on the Steering Committee as the Advertizing and Promotion chair.

Molly Moldovan

dystopia (acrylic on canvas)

Molly Moldovan is a visual artist whose primary focus is abstraction. Living and working in the Kawarthas since graduating OCA(D) with honours (fine art, drawing and painting) in 1991, Molly has had solo exhibitions and participated in numerous group shows in public and commercial galleries.

Although much of Molly’s work is based on the landscape in which she lives, it is firmly rooted in abstraction. Multi-layered, colourful, luminous and often fluidly transparent, these works express an idea of landscape mediated by memory, mood and emotion. There is a sense of time and place without overt narrative.

Using acrylic and mixed media on various grounds, Molly’s practice explores such diverse themes as democracy, international politics, the AIDS pandemic, familial relationships and always, the abstract nature of our universe.
