Graham Forsythe was born in Ireland and immigrated to Canada where he earned citizenship in 1970. After attaining a BA degree from the University of Guelph he began to write short stories and psychological thrillers. This self-taught artist credits his optical operation and his travels as his most valuable artistic influences. Forsythe does not categorize his paintings but instead finds that, "painting can be like meditation... without the prejudices of historical reference or anticipation of its outcome."
Morley Myers' sculptures are an intricate blend of cross cultural influences. His work in stone and various metals are explorations of the essential elements in human form. Over the last two decades he has developed an international following for his work, which has lead to exhibitions throughout North America.
Pender Island Artist Nancy Ruhl explores the little details of life that many people overlook, and through the process of painting these scenes, she makes the viewer aware of all the intimate places that make our city and region unique. Her vibrant pallet, in combination with a playful sense of composition, create inviting spaces that are unmistakably Victorian. She has been painting for over two decades, with works exhibited internationally.
