Artworks Gallery Guelph and recent Doors Open Events

Written by Artworks Gallery Guelph Member

Artworks Gallery Guelph is the newest dynamic art gallery and collective, located in the heart of the city’s creative district at 404 York Road, Guelph. Founded by professional artists in 2022, it features bi-monthly rotating themed shows with one-of-a-kind works in acrylic, oil, chalk pastel, watercolour and sculptured lamps. Each show includes a guest artist with an entire wall dedicated to their work, enabling art lovers to experience the creativity of non-members. The design of the gallery, with its zig-zag wall, invites the visitor to view the art as little vignettes, creating a warm and inviting intimacy. The works themselves vary widely in size, style and price, providing a broad range of choices. “Rocks, Streams and Dreams” was the theme from April 3 to May 5. Celebrating Yorklands Green Hub, part of the former Ontario Reformatory, it included drawings and paintings by Karin Silverstone’s students at Centennial Collegiate. 

Adam Honsinger, a local artist and author presented his large nature-inspired artwork in acrylic, coloured pencil and ink. Adding to the festive ambience of the day, he was joined by his partner, Raine Bone. They are an acoustic duo who play folk/roots-inspired original music and uniquely interpreted covers. Adam does vocals and plays acoustic guitar while Raine does vocals, harmonies and accompanies on the ukelele. 

Also on display was a dazzling display of art pieces by our members: Patti Collins, Nancy Farrell, Katherine Percival, Sharyn Seibert and Suzanne Wakefield. 

As a special event for Doors Open, we presented a free hands-on workshop on nature drawing lead by Sharyn Seibert.
