Come to the Art Gallery of Bancroft for this month's absorbing exhibition of the human persona, as rendered by two of our local artist-characters.

 

 

Arne Roosman is a treasure of the Eastern Ontario arts scene. He is well known locally for his paintings, outdoor murals and theatre stage sets.  His works have been featured in many exhibition, including locally at the Art Gallery of Bancroft (“There and Then; Here and Now” in 2014) and in Maynooth at the Wildewood Gallery, which displayed a retrospective of his work.   A series of sketches of his childhood grew into the compilation titled “A Touch of Arsenic: Sketching the Past by Arne Roosman”. While drawing inspiration from diverse subjects including nature, music, and mythology, his interest in the human form is reflected in this current exhibition.  He is the winner of many awards and commissions, and his painting can be found in local and international collections.

Don Wilson is a photographer living in Coe Hill Ontario. In this work he explores the archetype of the portrait and it's potential for describing personality or character through appearance. What makes portraits compelling? Is likeness truth? What do they really tell us? Don is a graduate of Ryerson's photographic arts program and works with digital and analogue materials, including the historic Wet Plate Process from the 1850's.
