"The 3 Amigos"

"The Three Amigos"- Rotter, Sampson and Grieve opening October 2, 2010


The Gallery on the Lake featuring three of Toronto's foremost emerging artists.



In its quest to bring great fine art to the Kawarthas, the Gallery on the Lake is proud to present three of Toronto's foremost emerging artists, Peter Rotter, David Grieve and Joe Sampson in their first ever group show entitled simply "The Three Amigos". The exhibit opens October 2nd and continues to October 30th.


David first met Peter and Joe (OCA classmates) at the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition in 1999. The three artists have a common love of the outdoors. They often take trips together gathering photos for their paintings and fishing.



David's work is inspired by where he lives. Many of his paintings have grown out of the fields around Brantford Ontario. Since purchasing a cottage on Jack Lake in 2008 views of the lake have filtered onto the canvas. Swaying Pines and dark dramatic skies are common themes in his thickly painted new work, depicted in his distinctive impressionistic style.



Peter Rotter was raised on Stoney Lake. His work is infused with images of the Kawarthas. After time spent on Stoney, Peter quickly returns to his Toronto studio to capture a mood or a scene: golden leaves swaying above him, ice cracking under his feet or the quiet beauty of a fresh snowfall.



Water is a central theme in Joe Sampson's work. He was born in Malta, a small island in the Mediterranean Sea. Time at the oceans edge has had a lasting impact on the artist. Joe is equally at home depicting waves crashing on a tropical shore, as he is capturing sparkles, dancing across the surface of lakes in Northern Ontario.



The opening reception and "Meet the Artists will be held on October 2nd from


1:00 4:00p.m.
