Stella Coultas captures dynamic elements and forces of nature within layered sculptures and constructed paintings. 

Coultas' use of wire, canvas, cotton, and paint captures and emphasizes her subject matter's movement and energy. Her inspiration is taken largely from the natural world, everything from distant galaxies to the tracery of veins in rotting leaves. With her imagery, she seeks to convey the creative and destructive forces at work in the universe.

Deep Water Gallery presents the exhibition Free Isolation, featuring regional artists David Robinson and Ofra Svorai.  

Free Isolation; is an exploration of the Canadian Landscape.

Ofra Svorai's oil paintings depict the deep connection between the artist and nature, capturing the vibrant colours of pervading light and shadow. Svorai paints landscapes from around Georgian Bay and the Beaver Valley, where she resides. 


The artist David Robinson is an avid bicycler, with work documenting his many forays along isolated highways and secluded rest stops. The narratives within the work encapsulate the pervading anxiety often felt by lone travellers. Soft hazy brushstrokes give the viewer a sense of motion and fleeting memory. We get a glimpse of these stories experienced through Robinson's eyes.

Wiarton, ON- In collaboration with The Wiarton and District Chamber of Commerce and Kelly Mcdougall, PSDS art instructor, Deep Water Gallery presents Catalyst:19 a showcase of exceptional youth talent. The exhibition runs until January 7, 2021. 

Covid 19 has changed arts and education in drastic ways. Yet, the creativity of our youth continues to thrive despite all odds. It is heartening to learn from younger generations; the positivity, perseverance and adaptability to harsh and trying times. Catalyst 19: is more than an art exhibition, it is the beginning of a bright and vibrant future for our local students.

Catalyst 19: features the artwork of PSDS students Meena Nault, Erica Myles, Amber Curtis, Rebecca Berg and Mariah Schneidmiller. Each artist undertakes different challenges within their work. Meena Nault, Mariah Schneidmiller, Amber Curtis explore identity through portraiture with clever framing and expressive colour. Rebecca Berg, meanwhile, takes a more conceptual approach with satirical reimaginings of traditional landscapes; think fantasy sea creatures meet Bob Ross. The work of Erica Myles explores the process of painting, ranging from expressive brushwork to highly detailed and precious observational studies. 


January 9, 2020 - February 16, 2020

Deep Water Gallery is proud to present its second exhibition, The Language of Trees, featuring the work of Christian Bernard Singer and Gary Eden. This exhibition is co-hosted by the Wiarton and District Chamber of Commerce and runs from January 9 to February 16, 2020.


The Language of Trees: We live in a time in which human activity has pushed our planet to the very edges of survival, as we regard nature with a sense of otherness – an entity that exists to be mastered and controlled. Yet, in reality, humans exist as a part of a larger interdependent life force within the natural world.


Christian Bernard Singer carefully selects, arranges and orders forest sheddings (pine needles) to create riotously colourful small constructions that evoke movements caused by larger natural forces. A steward of natural materials, Singer brings respectful attention to the simple pine needle, while adding new poetic metaphors to address our powers of observation as conscious individuals within a larger interconnected whole.


The work of Gary Eden seeks a different sort of stewardship; Eden encases the remnants of trees within patinated copper, creating sculptural relics that seemingly function like historical time capsules of the forest – works which simultaneously become artefacts and monuments of nature.


November 21, 2019-January 6, 2020

Deep Water Gallery will present its inaugural exhibition; The Edge of Paradise; featuring the work of Paul Duff and Constance Maconaghie. This exhibition is co-hosted by the Wiarton and District Chamber of Commerce.

The Edge of Paradise: Landscape painting has always been central to the portrayal of the Canadian Identity. The artwork of Paul Duff and Constance Maconaghie continues this tradition with paintings influenced by the Bruce Peninsula. Duff explores both the dramatic and the subtle beauty of the rugged landscape found mere kilometres from his Mar studio. The landscapes of Constance Maconaghie are as much a meditation on the silence and beauty of nature in Grey and Bruce as it is a comment on the threat of encroaching noise and crowded conditions in this area.
