While the QAC Gallery is closed until further notice, we are moving our current show RISE : Because We Are Equal online. Here we will celebrate the aesthetics and voices of women’s voices in the Quinte Region and feature a new artist daily.
To purchase art, please email the QAC.
Presenting Melissa Brant:
“Local artist, mom to two awesome creative kids. I specialize in face and body paint, but I enjoy creating acrylic works on canvas as well as many other forms of art. I love to help others express themselves through art, too!”
Presenting Christina Osborne:
“After 35 years’ experience with the Federal Public Service, Tina continued her largely self-taught personal creative experience. Influenced by her artistic painter mother and her subsequent naturalistic experiences at Presqu’ile Provincial Park, she paints insects, animals, people, aqua and landscapes in watercolour, coloured pencil, pastel, ink and in her favourite medium acrylic. Work tends to be realistic with abstract/intuitive/surrealistic and spiritual leanings.”
Presenting Sabrina Jovic:
Presenting Kaya Pereira:
“From a long line of visual artists, I have always been immersed in the fine arts. Painting is viewed as a lifestyle, and not a hobby in my family. My view of the world was groomed through the magical, detail-oriented eyes of my predecessors. My heart lies in nature, the diverse landscape we call Ontario holds the energy that I attempt to capture.”
Presenting Kathryn MacDonald:
“Creativity – with camera, oil or watercolour, or words for a poem – encourages seeing both the surface of things and deeply what lies beneath. Creating opens our eyes and our hearts. I hope that you will enter my work and glimpse something previously unseen, know something previously unknown.”
Presenting Dawn Morin:
“A woman slowly rises from the depths up to the light. Scattered on the ocean floor are her reproductive parts and the cancer that was threatening to consume her. Threads that bound her to a painful death have been cut.”
Presenting Katrina Houston:
“Throughout her life, Shani Doucet has always been fascinated by different artists and how the world is represented through their eyes. She continues to further develop her interests, skills and talents by visiting and talking to artists when she travels. She has taken various art courses at St. Lawrence College in Brockville, Loyalist College in Belleville, the Tett Centre in Kingston and different workshops from local artists in the area. Shani lives with her partner Jeff and stepson Max.”
“Since I became addicted to slow travel in 1993 I’ve done multi-day camel safaris in Tanzania and Morocco and earned my Dog Mushers Certificate (Yukon). I’ve trekked the Inca Trail, Navarre-Rioja region (Spain), the Guatemalan jungl to the ancient Maya site of El Mirador, Torres del Paine National Park (Chile) and the Akshayuk Pass (Canada).
