Gord Jones Zoom Mini-Workshop – Painting Winter Landscapes

November 13th, 2022 – Sunday, 1-4pm CST

Gord Jones has always been an artist. After experiencing many different mediums such as oils, pastels, acrylics, even egg tempera he returned to his greatest love, transparent watercolour.

Gord has sought direction throughout his artistic career from many of Canada’s most loved watercolourists. He has always found visual communication speaks clearest, even though his interpretations leave room for the viewer to explore and most importantly, participate in the conversation.

He focuses on taking familiar life as subject matter while commenting on the everyday aesthetic of nature and how light describes its many forms. Gord seeks to increase the dynamic between audience and author by objectifying emotional reaction and transferring that sense of space.

Gord is an elected member of the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour, The Society of Canadian Artists, and enjoys memberships inthe Niagara Frontier Watercolour Society, The Haliburton Arts Council, the Rails End Gallery, and is Ontario”s representative of the International Watercolour Society. Gord is a certified Adult Educator. He is represented by various galleries in Ontario and participates in selected exhibitions throughout the year.

After cottaging in the area for over 30 years, Gord and family have made Haliburton their home.
