WAAH Online Exhibition Autumn

The third season of the year that goes by two names: fall and autumn. It's a time when crops and fruits are gathered and leaves fall, in the northern hemisphere from September to November. It's a time for cooling temperatures and a freshness in the air, brilliant colours and fall fairs.

Contributing artists for the 2021 Autumn Online Exhibition are arranged alphabetically by surname: Janet Horne Cozens, Wendy Dougan, Sherry Hayes, Marzena Kotapska, Karen Logan, Elizabeth Malara-Wieczorek and Susan Pearson.

Sherry Hayes

As a wildlife artist and advocate for Canada’s Endangered Species, I am tremendously honoured to have recently received a personal letter from Dr. David Suzuki. Known worldwide as host of Canada’s CBC TV’s long running series — The Nature of Things, he is also widely recognized as a world leader in sustainable ecology. In his letter, Dr. Suzuki wrote that we are all interconnected. He acknowledged my wildlife art and thanked me for being part of the movement for a better relationship with Nature, founded on respect and responsibility. To receive this personal acknowledgement and thank you from Dr. Suzuki truly strengthens my commitment to my art and cause. Through my Darkness Series and with love for All Things Nature, I will continue striving to bring awareness to these issues while shining light on the darkness regarding the plight of Canada’s Endangered Species. “Winged Warrior” is part of this ongoing series.

Autumn Gathering - White Breasted Nuthatches on Tree Trunk

  • Acrylic on Canvas Board (NFS) Reprints on Professional Fine Art Paper
  • 8" x 10" including white border. Ready for mat and frame. Original is 24" x 30"
  • $49.95

As a chill in the air is felt and the deciduous leaves burst forth in a magnificent cornucopia of dazzling colour, one tiny nuthatch takes up his famous position on the tree trunk while his companion settles in on a branch. Both await the arrival of the cooler season as they contemplate their next move.

Winged Warrior - Monarch Butterfly on Hydrangea

  • Acrylic over Graphically Enhanced Black & White Photograph on Fine Art Paper
  • Fits into 16" x 20" frame (Not included). This 8" x 10" original is triple Matted and with a small plaque inserted within mat.
  • $499

The striking Monarch clings tenaciously to the Hydrangea flowers as it draws in sustenance in preparation for its epic journey south for the winter. This beautiful creature is emphasized in full colour against an eerily graphic black and white background, creating a haunting image designed to highlight this Species At Risk.

Please note: This piece is part of my 'Darkness' series. A portion of net proceeds will be donated to a wildlife preservation organization.

Karen Logan

Life is so busy now we often don’t see what is in the world around us and we take those native species for granted. My goal with my Backyard Neighbours project is to highlight the variety of native species found in the Hamilton area specifically and Ontario in general. Most people don’t realize the vast number of native plants, animals, birds, butterflies etc. we have here in the Hamilton area. To simplify the task I have started this project with species found on my own property and to date have identified over 120 natives to choose from. With 50 paintings so far I still have a long way to go. This series of art work shares both the beauty and diversity of nature that (when we look) we all have – right in our own back yards and provides me the opportunity to add my voice to the growing concerns around climate change and the risks to our natural environment.
