Gary Chapman, a well known and respected Canadian artist, has just joined the over 40 artists displaying their work on the new online gallery www.MadeInHaliburton.ca . Gary states that his “sole motivation for creating art comes from his love of nature”. Gary is particularly inspired by the changing of the seasons and his landscape paintings illustrate the changing moods of the landscape in every season. Whether the painting is of an evening sunset or a moon rising they transport us visually to the scenes that inspire us most.
Gary is a founding member of the Haliburton County Studio Tour and is back on the tour again this fall. He is an active member of the artistic community in the Haliburton Highlands and is a member of the Arts Council~Haliburton Highlands. Gary devotes time each summer to instructing watercolour courses at the Sir Sandford Fleming College Haliburton School of the Arts. Last year he was one of the instructors to launch the extension of the Fleming program to Huntsville, Ontario.
Gary resides at his Mountain Lake home in the Highlands of Haliburton.
