Light –  Member Virtual Gallery Show

January/February 2021

Canadian artist, Jean Paul Lemieux is quoted as saying,  “Art is like a labyrinth. One must search long and ardently for the passage that leads to the light.”  

It’s a new year, and our members are offering their interpretations of our theme Light.  From literal to humorous, artists’ interpretations feature a full range of themes, styles and subject matter.  We hope you will find your “light” among this wonderful variety of original artwork.  Enjoy!

We will feature work from this show on our Social Media platforms in the coming weeks, and the complete show can be viewed on our website.
All artwork can be purchased  by visiting the “Shop RHGA” page and selecting “Art Sales”

Understanding Colour for Painting Success – Dominik Modlinski

Virtual Workshop 
Saturday, February 20 – 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm EST
Sunday, February 21 – 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm EST

Dominik will address the principles of painting using just three primary colours that strengthen students’ understanding of correct colour ratios and principles of colour contrasts. The simplicity of this approach will give students the freedom and understanding of colour mixing, which leads to harmonious and successful paintings.
Together colour contrasts constitute the fundamental resource of colour design, either in stand-alone or dynamic duos combinations. Each contrast is unique in character and in its visual and expressive effect.
Understanding each colour contrast creates unlimited creative opportunities both in design and symbolic aspect of painting.
The aim of this workshop to inspire students to compose artwork based on strong colour contrast choices which are carried diligently throughout creative process resulting in bold and colorful works of art.
