Culture Snap Photography

I am moved to reveal individual expression and vibrant community life by photographing street scenes, stage performers, and meaningful interactions of all kinds. Peak moments during public events and layered street scenes that hold tension between objects and symbols are what speak to me the most. Whether capturing taxi drivers in Toronto, or schools in Uganda, I hope to reveal something fresh that provides lasting value to those who engage with my images.

Curious Bird Pottery

Curious Bird Pottery features Handmade Pottery, Ceramic Jewelry and Clocks that are functional, beautiful, and made to be used every day! I enjoy throwing bowls, mugs and vessels on the wheel while trays, clocks and jewelry are hand built and textured using found objects or hand carved linoplates. Contrasting intricate surface textures with clean forms create modern pieces that hint of traditions from the past.

Dale Evelyn Williams

Making art is always on my mind. I travel with a camera/sketchbook most of the time constantly banking images of what I want to create. I particularly love working with colour. I grew up in an era when most or all children were lead away from making their careers as artists. Times have changed. Though I have oil painted since I was ten years old, and am primarily self taught, I am now seeking additional direction and education in drawing and painting at the Avenue Road School of Art.

Dave Rheaume Artist

The cold, the dark, the snow_Reflections gleaned from childhood memories of growing up in Ottawa haunt the atmospheric paintings Dave Rheaume creates today. Art Noir meets Alex Colville with a distinct cinematic edge; each work a single moody frame, seemingly clipped from a filmstrip, hinting at before and after stories that this narrator/artist leaves open for thought — Araballa Magazine, Winter 2014

Ellen Evered Designs

Ellen Evered Designs offers a collection of lovely patterned greeting cards, textiles, art prints, and stationery. Coming from a family of avid gardeners, I grew up amidst flowers and plants. Although I do not share their green thumb, I am inspired by my natural surroundings, creating patterns of hand drawn lyrical line work and evocative colours. I take my designs and apply them to a variety of items. With my creations, I aim to bring a little bouquet of happiness into your home!

Goldiemilks is a tiny homemade brand that produces one of a kind garments, playthings, and accessories for wee babes and kids. For my line I use recycled, up-cycled, and up-styled textiles to create clothing that is both fashionable and functional. A big part of my process is mixing different textiles to create playful kids wear. All of the production takes place in my tiny East Toronto Basement where I take pride in creating fabulous, eco-conscious, kids things for you!

Imam Azhari

With his cultural background, Imam developed an interested in creating illusion in his art, often combining humour, unusual objects and historical reference.

Ivan Schneider

It is my function as an artist to make the viewer see my way. My work is a birth of time and thought frozen on canvas. Manipulated from the original on-site sketches, into forms and colours that please. I feel art is not only for the eye; it is the result of an intellectual consideration. A painting is a painting. I do many paintings, leaving them for years and then discovering them and tearing out a form or colour combination which makes me excited. I'm not bound; I paint and enjoy the process.

JGT Original Artwork

My artwork is inspired by the mysterious wonders of the natural world and my childhood imagination. Live to Make Art / Make Art to Live.

Julie Glick

DOG PAINTINGS:
After I adopted my dog Micah in 2005, I decided to paint a series of works based on neighbourhood canines. That exhibition was so much fun and such a success that I thought I would be happy just painting dogs... Well it seems that the universe heard me; my commissioned pet paintings have been in demand ever since.

CLAY:
Much of my work could be considered functional pottery, but my intention is to create sculptures; works that often happen to be inspired by functional forms.

My work is a constant search for the best way to interpret the ideas that I have. I do not limit myself to one style, yearn or fashion trend. Inspiration and ideas change. Knowledge changes. Each piece that I create is a fusion of my past, where I come from and the future, where I am going to in pursuit of new creative ideas.

Kris Cvetkovic

My work is primarily abstract, and deals with concepts of cause and effect, whether on a macro or a micro level. I observe these patterns in nature and daily life, and then attempt to translate them onto a piece of canvas or paper. I create interwoven shapes either out of a multitude of vibrant colours, or one dominant colour, and then look for ways to merge them with other elements into cohesive patterns.

KWP Design

My sculpture explores the use and reuse of materials with previous lives and functions that are given a new life and form. Fragments of one world are brought into the next, in an effort to provoke thought, trigger memory and to connect past and present.
