Alex Chorny

     Alex Chorny is a multi-media artist based in Burlington, Ontario. He is currently enrolled in the Studio Art Honours Program at Brock University’s Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts, following his studies of Accounting and Finance, and Life Sciences at the University of Waterloo. Alex has always been deeply moved by the arts and is fascinated by the many advances in technology, mineralogy, chemistry, and the mathematics and physics that shape the associated symmetries and structures around us. Having both scientific and artistic interests, he draws inspiration from exploring these diverse fields and enjoys discovering parallels between seemingly unrelated subjects on both macro and micro scales.

     “I have always believed that art is the great connector to all human disciplines and that trans-disciplinary research is essential to idea generation. The aim of my work is to invite viewers to broaden and reinterpret their perspectives on the relationship between science and the arts. Through highlighting the visual beauty in magnetism, mineralogy, physics and science, I hope to encourage the viewers` capacity to think creatively and to make connections between these seemingly opposite disciplines.”

Lynda Jones

     My name is Lynda jones, I like to take my own path experimenting as I go. I love the uncontrolled effects of the inks as they take me in a new direction making each painting a journey of magic opening up to new horizons.

     I am a member of the Art Gallery of Burlington, member of the Burlington Fine Arts and sell my works through my own studio, through the gift shop at the art gallery of Burlington. My works are sold in Canada, The United States, and Mexico. 

     My works appear on the television shows Schitts Creek; Working Moms; Mary Killed People; The Good Witch; and The Beaverton.

     My Materials are acrylic, inks, and resin which makes each painting different. I want the person who sees my art not only see what I see but to make it their own.

 

Annie Dudink

     My passion is the making of art, with oil or acrylic, watercolour, clay, stone, or wood. My latest enjoyment is making art with pen and ink. What I do like the most of it, is the beauty of the colours, the power and the energy that will come out of it. Hope you will share this wonderful enjoyment with me.

Dennis Jones

     My name is Dennis Jones, I started my art career later in life 4 years ago at the age of 78. 

I have been inspired by the brilliant colours of Mexico bringing forward the joys of reds, yellows and blues, the colours of nature. I love the innocence of the faces of the children and young people and the happiness that seems to glow from their faces.

While continuing my journey I would like to bring forth in my art a more abstract form in my figures.

I am a member of the Art Gallery of Burlington, member of the Burlington Fine Arts and my works are sold in Canada, The United States, and Mexico. My work is also sold in shows and in my home studio.

Thank you to Venture Norfolk for recognizing The Old Town Hall’s Art Gallery program through a matching fund grant. We have installed a state of the art hanging system that will serve artists showing their work in the Old Town Hall Gallery for years to come.
