Lucy Manley and Poul Thrane
|To celebrate the Thanksgiving season Gallery on the Lake will
feature an exhibit "Canadian Vistas" of the original oils and watercolours by Lucy Manley
and Poul Thrane in the rotunda from October 9th to October 22nd.
Lucy Manley's favourite medium is oil, and she enjoys creating landscapes using bold colours to depict mostly rural scenes in any season of the year. Lucy has studied under such renowned artists as Edwin Matthews and the late David Bierk. She has won many awards for her work and was also an Artist in Residence for two summers at Bon Echo Provincial Park.
Poul Thrane paints on location in order to capture the immediate response to a scene in nature. He conveys those feelings to the viewer by painting oil and watercolours in a loose impressionistic style. Poul studied under Danish artists before moving to Canada where he continued his artistic training at the Ontario College of Art. His works can now be found in many corporate and private collections throughout Canada and he has won numerous awards in juried exhibits.
