New from Algonquin Photography in 2012, Jerry is offering images on beautiful canvas or classic traditional framed prints.

FORM is explored and exposed with skill in the media of wood carving by David Standfield. David has had a life-long love affair with canoes, Algonquin Park and wood working. He has been a canoe builder with Taylor Statten Camps on Canoe lake for over 30 years. His carvings include decoys, walking sticks, masks, bowls, and sculptures. In this show David displays his Loon eggs and bowls, the newest creative direction for his carving talent.

COLOUR , light and energy fill the beautiful paintings of artist Janine Marson. Her productive career spans over 25 years as a professional artist. This show will include original recent work in acrylic and pastel, as well as prints and cards. Janines' deep connection to the Algonquin Region, coupled with her strong painting and colour skills, allow for the full expression of her love of the land, and fuels her desire to preserve and protect it for future generations.
