As a contemporary realist my paintings and drawings are “portraits” of a real moment in time that reflect my strong emotive response to the vast Canadian wilderness and natural places. The right motifprovides a sense of time, place, light and space. I strive to connect the viewer with that inspirational moment in time, the grandness of our wilderness areas and serene beauty that nature provides. ~ Artist Warren Peterson

A Little about Warren Peterson
Since the age of 10 Warren Peterson has been painting natural landscape, after 50 years, his artworks will be on display at L & D’s Art Gallery and Framing from Sept. 6 to Sept. 30, 2019.
Everyone is free and welcomed to attend the exhibition
“My first interest in art came from books on nature and how it was depicted throughout time. The science of nature fascinated me, to be it plants, clouds, space, it was all about wonder and curiosity. That still inspires me today,” says Peterson.
The Group of Seven has been Peterson’s main source of inspiration over the years, using mainly acrylics. “I found the Group of Seven in my early teens. Their story and fresh interpretation of the landscape was a very important part of my development. I am very inspired by their Algoma en pleinair paintings and after having made the journey to the Agawa Canyon several times I can say that the immensity of our wilderness areas was conveyed very emotionally in paint by these artists,” says Peterson.
Warren is a teacher too. He teaches many different styles from abstract to impressionism, in the studio or en plein air. Peterson has been a successful selling artist with work in many private collection, all over the world. His art is in Japan, across Canada, California, and Florida.
Peterson has shown at the Art Gallery of Algoma, The Canadian Bushplane Heritage Centre, The Ethyl Curry Gallery, and at Art at The Dock in Hilton Beach over the last several years.
