Randy Bloye, Chiselling a World of His Own

Randy's world is one of tiny houses, on giant hills, funky trees and mysterious faces.
His vivid imagination finds the image and the nature of the chunks of cottonwood bark that he uses dictates that they all be whimsically twisted, and serpentine.
Whether they be wall hung or free standing Randy's world will fill your's with delight.

David E Dale, The Man Behind the Camera

Gone are the days when turning 65 meant finding a rocking chair. No one personifies that more than David Smokey Dale. To celebrate his milestone birthday David has quite literally doubled his artistic endeavours, taking a double wide space at the Art Emporium Port Stanley, Artist Collective, and becoming very active at the Ingersoll Creative Arts Centre.  
David is no new comer to art, he started winning competitions at a very early age, and in the 70's and 80's was known as the King of Airbrush Painting creating custom looks for vehicles through out the region. Unfortunately the air borne solvents took a toll on his health, so he now pursues the very different mediums of Clay and Photography.
His hand built pottery is resplendent with texture, rich with colour, and a favourite with gallery visitors.

He signs his work 'Smokey' thanks to a stint in junior Forest Rangers, and that love for the outdoors is evident in his photographic work, which is a purists delight. There is no digital trickery involved, just endless patience and an eye for beauty.
We wish David many more creative years to come!

Wilf Chappell, Digital artist with Flair

Once upon a time, Wilf was a photographer. Then he discovered digital manipulation, and the rest as they say is history...
Looking at his work today, you'd be hard pressed to be able to pull it apart into the original photo's that layer his work. Recently he's begun adding paint and other mediums to take the work in an even more exotic direction! We're very exited by his recent works and are proud to present Wilf as one of Aprils featured artists here at the Art Emporium.

Robin Baratta, Glazed Art

One of our April featured artists, Robin has a fascination with shape and texture accentuated by line.  In her Artist's statement she lists such diverse influences  as Aboriginal Art, Vincent Van Gough, and fossils.  Looking at her art I think you can see a little of each!
