Featured Artist

Harry Stooshinoff
Harry Stooshinoff has been painting, showing, and selling for over 30 years and he divides his time between painting and teaching.  He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts, a Master of Fine Arts, and a Bachelor of Education.     

Mr. Stooshinoff describes his work in this way, "When I was a boy growing up in Saskatchewan, I used to look far into the distance and wish I had more trees around protect me and make the place feel less empty.     
     Now I have lots of trees around me, but I still like to look very far into the distance. 

It's a big, NOISY world...
So I make small, quiet paintings...

It makes a certain kind of sense."

.....the end of March....went out like a lamb.....dry and warm."
