Ferron was born in Joliette, Quebec in 1943 and died in Yarmouth in 2018. It was in 1975 that he moved his family to Pubnico, where he was inspired by the landscapes and seascapes he depicted in watercolours, acrylics and oils.

Always interested in oriental art, he learned the Japanese Sumi-e brush through research and experimentation. In 2004, he learned the techniques of brushstrokes with a master painter from the Republic of Korea.

In the latter part of his life he learned the art of lithography and printmaking. A practicing artist for more than 45 years, Ferron’s work is in private collections in Canada, England, Australia, United States, Japan, and Korea.

Art tour Rhizomes returns to downtown St. Catharines – NiagaraFallsReview.ca

Published

on


It was down, but never out.

Delayed since spring because of the pandemic, a retooled Rhizomes art tour kicks off Thursday in downtown St. Catharines and runs until Sunday night.

Since it started in 2014, the diverse event has been one of the most popular parts of the annual In the Soil arts festival, which was forced to spread programs throughout the summer instead of its usual weekend in late April.

Most years, the show lets small groups tour a variety of art installations, ranging from short plays to music to art displays. Past locations have included Corbloc and the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts.

This year, there will be site-specific installations and performances throughout the east end of St. Paul Street. Guided tours with a maximum of six people will start at 6, 7 and 8 p.m. each night.

Artistic director Deanna Jones says each tour will be socially distanced, with mandatory masks.

“This year we’re doing some indoor and outdoor locations in different spots and doing all we can to keep it safe,” she says. “It’s the similar spirit where the artists are reacting to different spaces.

“We’re trying to illuminate some unusual places where you may not see a visual art installation.”

This year’s 11 featured artists are Evelyn Atoms, Zach Coull, Magdolene Dykstra, Emily Andrews, Rebekka Gondasch, Jesse Horvath, Matt Jaekell, Roselyn Kelada-Sedra, Katie Mazi, Alex Ring, Chance Mutuku, Jon Shaw and Marcel Stewart.

Each tour starts on the front lawn of Silver Spire United Church, 366 St. Paul St. Tickets, at the pay-what-you-can rates of $10, $20 or $30, are available at www.rhizomes.brownpapertickets.com

“We just decided to keep it small,” says Jones. “We know some people may not be comfortable to go out and about, but for those who come we’re ensuring their safety.”
