90 PROOF: THE ART OF COPP, MASEWICH AND MCCARTHY AT WELLINGTON COUNTY MUSEUM & ARCHIVES, SEPTEMBER 12 - NOVEMBER 1, 2015

Journey through the Wellington County landscape as seen through the eyes of three of the region's most renowned artists. Linda Risacher Copp, Joel Masewich and Barry McCarthy have a total of 90 years of experience between them, each a master of their chosen areas: the reflective peace of Copp's batiks, the edgy power of Masewich's acrylic and metal abstracts and the stunning representational watercolours and oil paintings of Barry McCarthy.

Curator Susan Dunlop says "with over 30 paintings on display, each pieces gives you a sense of the artists' passionate connection to the natural world."

"Painting is about capturing the vision...the inspiration that brought you to the canvas," says Barry McCarthy. "The Elora Gorge is a piece of this planet that drives me wild. No matter what time of day it is, one side is always bathed in light while the other is in warm to cool shadows."
