Tom Does it Again!!!!

No stranger to winning, Tom Scanlan, Elgin County’s carver extraordinaire has surpassed his previous accomplishments, and come home with a first in Advanced Interpretative Carving from the Ward World Wildfowl Carving Competition in Ocean City Maryland.
Tom’s Green Heron was carved from a single piece of driftwood gifted to him by a friend and fellow artist Judy Ross.
Carefully shaped, and finished with clear polyurethane the stylized heron’s subtle detail is truly beautiful, contrasting with the rough untouched driftwood that Tom so masterfully left as supporting contrast.
Tom will be showing this work, and available to talk about his art, techniques and motivation  Saturday May 14th, 2-4, and Sunday May 22nd 11-5 pm at the Art Emporium, 177 Main St, Port Stanley, call 226-658-1888 for more information.

Kelly Bennett, On A Whimsy

Mustard, Kelly Bennette assemblage, 15x19, $145.00
Kelly is a funny lady, and that sense of humour is very evident in her work, you just never know what she's going to use next, or what new form it will take!

Melissa Kempf-Bringing Stone To Life

Hide and Seek, Soapstone, Melissa Kempf, $625.00 contact for info
Highly stylized and tactile, Melissa's work will invite both your imagination and fingers to play.

Judy Minor, Illusions In Oil

Basket Ball, Judy Minor, 13x22, Oil, $800.00 contact for info 
Judy's accomplishments are legion, and awe inspiring, yet the woman herself is unassuming and sweet. Impressionist and realist, her subjects look better than anything in the 'real world' ever could.

Mark Spowart-Photo Essayist

Elora, Elora gorge,
Elora, Mark Spowart, 16x20, $175.00, Photographic Art, contact for info
Marks works in black and white show his dramatic eye. He sees the bare bones of the subject and uses that starkness to tell a story, evoking the emotion of the place and time.

Robert Reid, Octogenarian Marvell

Over 5 years ago when a group of artists frustrated with the art show festival circuit decided to form the collective that became the Art Emporium, Bob was a ring leader, at that point he was a mere 79 years old. He still is a major player in our organization, and he still can run rings around the rest of us!
