Burgh residents are invited to attend the annual Garden Exhibit of Canadian Landscapes of artist Gordon Harrison at his studio at 81 John Street in New Edinburgh, the Studio is where Gordon spends endless hours putting his passion on canvas.

The exhibit is a special happening in the community that provides a unique opportunity for art collectors, clients, and the public to visit the studio where the artist paints. Gordon’s art finds a new home in the gardens surrounding the studio and those attending can view the artist’s most recent art while enjoying refreshments and listening to live music provided by local musicians.

Gordon Harrison finds inspiration for his colourful landscapes through his travels across Canada and he shares his experiences through his art. Gordon’s work has often been described as a “celebration of colour”. His bold use of colour evokes an emotional response from the viewer as he creates a mood in each painting. Gordon has a passion for the beauty Canada offers in its forested landscapes, rocky shorelines, sweeping valleys and enchanting communities.

Gordon’s work can be viewed at the Gordon Harrison Canadian Landscape Gallery in the ByWard Market in Ottawa, through his website and at other fine art galleries across Canada listed on his website. It is also possible to meet the artist at his studio by appointment.

Copies of Gordon Harrison’s recently released book Gordon Harrison Canadian Landscapes will also be available and the artist will be available to sign copies. The newly printed 160 page hardcover book features colour reproductions of more than 90 oil paintings from his travels across Canada.
