Meet at the Irondale Church
The Irondale Church was built in 1887 by Haliburton County’s great iron and railway baron Charles Pusey. Gary’s drawings of the building were showcased in his 2020 exhibition Navigations of Iron at the Agnes Jamieson Gallery which highlighted the mining history of the area. This session will be spent drawing and painting, with quick drying water based materials.
Gary has been a professional painter for nearly 30 years with over sixty exhibitions across Canada and the UK. Trained as a geologist, Gary’s work encapsulates the liminal worlds of Earth’s surface. His paintings can be found in many public and private collections. Recently Gary worked with the Canadian Space Agency on a project celebrating Canada’s terrain from space. His work can be seen at hotspurstudio.com

Painting/sketching on site is the best way to connect to your subject matter and when you are connected it increases dramatically the chances of conveying those emotions to the viewer. Join Harvey and attempt to capture the song of the Gull River.
