Trail Highlights

Location 1 - Joe Sampson

Location 1 - Joe Sampson

Joseph Sampson graduated from the Ontario College of Art in 1995. After OCA, he began freelancing as an illustrator while continuing to paint. Painting quickly became his sole occupation. Joe’s portfolio is comprised of a variety of scenic imagery, and is currently focused on waterscapes. Drawn to shorelines, beaches, lakes, oceans and streams, Joe uses water imagery to depict the dichotomy between movement and immobility. A detailed understanding of light’s ability to create colour, shadow and tone is utilized to set mood in each painting. Whether the focus is cold, warm, tranquil or angry, waters’ magnificence strikes the viewer and an emotional response is evoked. This is due, in part, to the large scale of the work. From a distance, the viewer is drawn towards what appears to be a photograph. Upon closer inspection, brushstrokes are revealed and the observer is made aware of the meticulous layers of brushwork, resulting in the illusion that the viewer is still for an instant, at the waters’ edge.

Joanna Turlej, OCAD, OSA, CFS Artist Statement I cherish a beauty of nature and feel strongly connected with it. I care about the environmental problems we are facing today. Through my art, I like to highlight the importance of preserving the nature. As a medium, I use high-quality repurposed magazine papers, Japanese papers and tissues, or my own painted papers. I express my vision by creating collage of ripped or cut papers adhered onto canvas or wooden board. I find this process challenging, exciting and environmentally friendly. I like to interpret what I see in a meaningful way, abstracting the image to some degree or at times just creating a feeling it evokes in me in total abstraction. Biography Joanna Turlej graduated from OCAD University in Toronto, ON with honours degree and George A. Reid Award of Excellence in Fine Art. Since her graduation, she studied under many notable artists, continuously expanding her artistic knowledge and expertise. During her 25 years career as an artist, she has explored different media, among them watercolours, acrylics, and mixed media. In 2014, her explorations led her to embrace paper collage technique, as her expression in art. This very specialized and unique technique, created by her, brought her a lot of success. Joanna’s work has been accepted into national and international prestigious exhibitions. She is an elected member of OSA (Ontario Society of Artists) and a life member of CFS (Colour and Form Society). She won several top awards in prestigious juried exhibitions in Canada and Europe. Most recently, her painting “Arctic Beauty” was juried into and exhibited in the international exhibition themed “Human Rights? #H2O”, sponsored by UNESCO and exhibited in Rovereto, Italy, where she was representing Canada among other 31 countries.

Location 5 - Sjon DeGroot

Location 5 - Sjon DeGroot

Sjon de Groot principally works in oils, using a combination of traditional European and North American techniques. The work is bold and multi-dimensional, an expression in colour of a South African coming to terms with his adopted land; and combining his African and North American experience with the influence of his Dutch artist ancestors. Defying genre, Sjon creates to his own agenda, using his art to express, question, and start conversations. Originally trained by Geoffrey and Michael Armstrong at the JHB School of Art in South Africa, he completed many commissions for businesses and private collectors there, before immigrating to Canada in 1997. Now widely exhibited in Canada, his pieces have been purchased by many private and corporate buyers.

Location 10 - Chuck Lewis

Location 10 - Chuck Lewis

It is often difficult to describe why an artist selects a particular scene to recreate on canvas or paper. I choose a scene because nature has created a unique combination of colour, composition, structure and perspective which appeal particularly to me. Scenes depicting structures are selected because their distinctive construction, history or general perspective enhance the specific scene that I have chosen. Works in this real life situation must, in my opinion, be detailed to hold the viewer’s attention and to make every viewing a new experience. If people feel they can walk through a scene and discover new details in the work, then I have accomplished what I set out to do. My love of art and natural ability have been augmented over many years by a variety of courses and workshops. I maintain studios in Port Credit, Ontario, and in the Halliburton Highlands on Glamor Lake. As a director of an international engineering firm, my work allows me to travel the world. While a great number of my pieces depict local scenes in the Halliburton Highlands, others portray international settings experienced during my travels. ​ I work with both inks and oils and have had several solo gallery shows in the Toronto and Kitchener areas, as well as numerous group showings. My work has also been commissioned by individuals and corporations and can be found in private collections throughout Canada.

ARTIST STATEMENT and BIOGRAPHY I am a figurative artist. Often people ask me, what does that mean? It means that the content of my art involves the human form. I have been told that my drawings and paintings have a distinctive contemporary edge. I work in oil, pastel and charcoal. A strong gestural figure, that depicts the emotion I try to create, excites me. Modern dancers have been my models in the past and have greatly influenced me over the years. Lately my interest has been with integrating the human form with water....the one element which sustains all life. ​ My work is represented in private, corporate and public collections including: Shell Canada, Mount Sinai Hospital, Macdonald Gallery; The University of Guelph, Mississauga City Hall, Art Gallery of Mississauga, Government of Ontario Archives; Art Purchase and the Helson Gallery, Georgetown. Professional Associations: Elected member of the Society of Canadian Artists. The Ontario Society of Artists. The Colour and Form Society. Exhibitions: Ontario: Toronto, Oakville, Georgetown, Mississauga Art Gallery. Germany: Hamm. Juried Exhibitions: Extensively in Ontario. Quebec: Montreal. Nova Scotia: Halifax. Japan: Kariya. ​ www.heathergrindley.com

Location 15 - Lindy Lawrence F

I have always had a passion for creating and viewing the world in a way that focuses on the beauty in the very simplistic value of everyday objects and places. I am constantly in awe of the colours, feelings and emotions inspired by the sun, the wind, rain, and I have always been compelled to capture that visual in a way that draws the moment back again and again. Much of my work is in oils, but have only recently converted mainly to acrylics and am enjoying the benefit of working in this medium. I have used this gift in many,many ways throughout my life, but have decided in recent years to focus mainly on capturing what I feel passionate about onto canvas. With a tendency towards hyper-realism, I see so much below the apparent and obvious. I view this as a gift that lies beneath everything I do in life. Everything I see, everything I feel. It’s the under current that motivates my entire being. I feel blessed, and I hope that I inspire others who view my paintings to look a little closer, take a little more time, pull back and see the most basic beauty that is everywhere around us.
