  • (1888PressRelease) August 25, 2011 - Bold, colourful and exuberant, the landscapes and cityscapes in Sherway Gardens' current Gallery in the Garden exhibit entitled Cityscape / Landscape 2 celebrate two artists' experiences of the Canadian landscape and the city around us. Neil Whitworth's sleek and styled canvases contrast and complement the thick and textured surfaces created by Pam Pols. Created in acrylic paint on canvas or wood, they demonstrate the diverse ways in which this media can be used. The exhibit is on display until Saturday, September 17 in the corridor at door 3. For more information call 416-621-1070 or visit www.sherwaygardens.ca.

    Etobicoke artist Neil Whitworth was born in Montreal and as soon as he was able to hold a pencil, he had an interest in art. He studied at the Montreal Museum of Fine Art and other private art schools in the Montreal area.

    Now, after 40 years in retail advertising for Eaton's, Holt Renfrew, Simpsons and the Bay, he has time to paint his favorite subjectů the varied Canadian landscape. Neil's paintings are found in private collections in Canada, USA and Great Britain and in corporate collections including Honeywell and Inco. Neil is a member of The Etobicoke Art Group, Neilson Park Creative Centre and an elected member since 1998 of the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour (CSPWC) and The Etobicoke Art Group.

    Brampton artist, Pam Pols was born in Leamington, England, and arrived in Canada in 1953. She has always been creative and enjoys both acting and painting. In the 1960s while working as a teacher in Peel Region, she earned a Supervisors Certificate in Art from the Ontario College of Art and then English Honours and Fine Arts degrees from York University. Travelling and family activities put Pam's artistic endeavors on hold until her retirement in 1997. Since then she has been studying with Steve Rose, Lila Lewis, Brian Smith, and John Leonard. Pam is a member of Beaux Arts Brampton, Neilson Park Creative Centre, and The Etobicoke Art Group. Her work has been exhibited widely across the GTA at locations including the McMichael Canadian Collection 2009-2010 Progression Exhibition, and juried exhibitions held at the Art Gallery of Mississauga, Neilson Park Creative Centre, Etobicoke Civic Centre Art Gallery, and Beaux Arts Brampton, as well as many smaller venues.
