Russ Paquette – Poems of our Land

Russ Paquette – Poems of our Land

When art becomes poetry. This February, Applecrate Galleries will be hosting a brief show of select works from Ottawa artist Russ Paquette. Russ lives and works as a painter in Ottawa, Canada, and has been involved in group and solo art shows in Ontario and Nova Scotia. Russ was born in Ottawa, but spent his formative years in St. John’s, Newfoundland where his mother is from. His Newfoundland grandmother’s house was on a steep hill that led down to the waterfront. From her back pantry he could see and smell the ocean passageway that leading to the harbour. These early maritime years have had a profound effect on him, both artistically and spiritually.

Marion Aitken – Living Fully Alive

Marion Aitken was born in Zimbabwe to a New Zealand father and Canadian mother but grew up in Stratford, Ontario. Since childhood, she has thrived creating beautiful things, so naturally studied art in school.

A graduate of London Ontario’s Bealart Vocational Art Program and Sheridan College’s Technical Illustration Program, Marion’s artistic passion is to compose accurate, striking images full of vivid colour and/or tone, rich in detail, reflecting the fascinating patterns and designs found both in the natural and urban worlds. She paints realistically and prefers to use her own photographs as reference material. These photographs capture inspiring subjects from her travels. She has travelled extensively throughout North, Central and South America, Britain and New Zealand over the past several years. This exposure to different cultures and customs has tempered both her artistic expression and world view.
