Beverly CampbellPainter

“I was born and raised in Toronto, lived in the beach and am a member of the Beach Guild of Fine Arts. I studied mixed media at Ontario College of Art, then Animated film at Sheridan College where I became an illustrator. Most of my work is heritage, historical architecture, landmarks and buildings in and around Ontario, under threat of demolition.

Over the summer I have been working on photographing and illustrating store fronts and have started a business called SHOPFRONTS(c). These illustrations have been made into post cards and sold in the local shops, art shows and presently in Warren General Store located at The Lynde House Museum.

I have a particular interest in old journals, letters and photos of individuals, and Victorian family albums.
Having recently transposed, three original journals of Eben Muir Rice, 1861 to 1870, I later donated them to the McMaster Baptist History department. I have since used this valuable material to write several books. The first publication is entitled, The Longwoods Saga (c). This is a pen and ink illustrated booklet portraying the life of Eben Muir Rice, prior to his first journal that began in Martinsburg, NY, January 1/1861. Since then I have written a full length novel under the copyright of, The life of Ebenezer Muir Rice (c). This book is based on research of his life prior to beginning his journals in 1861. The purpose of writing this book was to try and fill in the missing years of his childhood spent in Montreal, then Ingersoll, Brantford and Hamilton before he returned, during Civil War, to Martinsburg, New York. Returning in 1861 to Upper Canada where he attended the Woodstock Literary College and became a Baptist Minister in Bothwell, Ontario. This first full length novel in a series, is entitled, The Longwoods Saga (c) Book One/Eben of Manor Mills. I have
recently moved to Ajax, and have been out and about photographing Whitby and historical Brooklin.”

Debbie DellFused Glass by Debbie Dell – Jewellery and Display Art

“Inspired by glass artisans and endless possibilities, Debbie endeavors to create the unification of beauty and elegance with a contemporary flair of her own. These elements continue to enhance her horizon, enabling her to incorporate exciting new rudiments in design form and color.

Born in Ontario, Canada, Debbie has always been interested in the Arts as a participant, supporter, and teacher.  Devouring new ideas and excelling at the challenge and endless creativity presented, she has pursued the development of her own style and partiality to the art of fused glass.  Fused glass became her medium for creating pieces that seem to float with color and charm.  Glass fusion, a dramatic process in the creation of glass art, became Debbie’s passion.  Glass fusion has allowed Debbie to develop her own style. The pieces presented are both inspiring and practical.
  
In 2008, after a long career in business, Debbie retired to concentrate on further developing her artistry.  She has contracted projects that have taken her to new heights in the art of glass fusion.  Debbie has collaborated with other artists and is open to incorporating other materials such as metal, wood and stone to express herself. Debbie has studied the work of many internationally renowned artists in glass forms.  She continues to focus on technical proficiency in the art of glass fusion.”

Ruth Greenlaw – Pastel, Watercolour, Drawing, Etching

“I was born and grew up in Ontario and have returned after spending several years in other parts of Canada, most recently, Nova Scotia. I am inspired by the effects of light on surfaces such as glass, metal and water, and the cycles of growth and renewal in nature. My love of color is expressed in my watercolors and pastels while my enjoyment of line and graphic qualities can be found in my etchings and drawings. As I continue to explore various combinations of media and subject matter, I find that creating art is full of possibility. Etching is a traditional process which produces multiple original works of art. To create my etchings I use a copper plate and cover it with a waxy resist I cut lines into the wax with a needle to expose the metal. The plate
is immersed in acid to etch lines in it where the metal is exposed. After the wax is removed, I rub ink into the lines, place a moist paper on the surface
and run the plate and paper through an etching press. For me, the most exciting part of the process is when a beautiful original etching emerges from the press.” Ruth Greenlaw
