James Keirstead

The Gallery on the Lake, Buckhorn is pleased to present an exhibit of new works by the renowned and accomplished artist “Keirstead”.

The exhibit is entitled “Our Heritage and beautiful Land”

A long established Canadian artist, James Lorimer Keirstead has been painting full time since 1965. Since the 1980s Keirstead has been on the must have list of many collectors His art is held in over 20 major corporate collections as well as private collections in Canada the United States & Europe.

Now 79, James Keirstead is strong and painting well as this showing of  “Our Heritage and Beautiful Land” will attest.

Few living artists can claim the popularity that James Lorimar Keirstead enjoys today.  Admittedly a driven artist, he has produced an amazing number of paintings – far ranging in subject but always distinctively Keirstead.  Painting mainly with knives and oils he creates sharp, clear, boldly textured works that for many help establish an elusive Canadian identity.

He is best known for his paintings of stone houses with flower gardens, high definition landscapes, old mills and homesteads of eastern Ontario. His ability to garner emotional responses to these paintings, and his large following of faithful “Keirstead” collectors,  has earned him the reputation as a “Canadian Icon”
