Reasons for trip

Situated in an old brick building on the main street of Wortley Village in London, Ontario, the “Westland Gallery”:http://www.westlandgallery.ca is a small art gallery with regularly changing exhibits. I stopped in the other day when out for brunch with a friend to check out the latest exhibits.

From February 18 to March 7 2020 there is an exhibit called Influencers featuring paintings (abstract, landscapes, portraits) and pottery by a variety of artists. It explores how artists influence each other in their work. I enjoyed the landscapes, especially those by Jamie Jardine depicting Algonquin Provincial Park which I recognized from many camping trips with my family in my youth. Running concurrently is an exhibit of Peter Dusek and Lee Munn’s work. The former takes primarily black and white landscape and nature photography and the latter paints stunningly colourful landscapes in acrylic. Of the two exhibits the latter was my favourite. Although the two artists’ styles are polar opposites the subject is similar and their work takes me back to places where I’ve spent many happy times up in Northern Ontario and it’s amazing scenery.

There is also a gallery upstairs in the Apartment of the building that is worth checking out. Be mindful, it’s an old building and the stairs are steep.The entrance fee isn’t steep though, it’s free.

Closed on Mondays, the gallery is open from 10-6 during the week, 10-5 on Saturday and noon – 4 on Sundays.
