Royal City Gems - An Artist's Tribute to Guelph

By Jane Litchfield

Like many Guelphites, artist Barbara Salsberg Mathews caught the Guelph bug when she attended university here, and now she’s back. Salsberg Mathews enjoys capturing the story and mood in local landscapes using acrylics and mixed media and has recently turned her eye to Guelph icons such as the Petrie Building and the Basilica of Our Lady Immaculate. You can check out her work at Silence in October. We asked her a few questions so you could get to know her better. (We’re also grateful to have her as a Guelph Arts Council board and committee member.)
