Art Encounter: Meet Murray Phillips
Murray Phillips will be in our gallery demonstrating on the weekend of November 21 and 22 between noon and 4pm on each day. Although this well known Canadian artist has been painting for more than 40 years, much of his life has been lived in the halls of academia where he holds graduate degrees in theology and cultural anthropology. Murray's interests are many, including classical guitar and sailing, but an abiding love is painting - and expressing the spiritual in his paintings. The primary focus of his work is the Canadian wilderness. The rich heritage of connection between Canadian artists and the land has never been more important than today when we are losing our relationship with the wilderness and see it primarily as a playground for our high-powered toys. Murray is frequently asked to spseak on our relationship with both art and wildderness. Meet Murray during two days of demo.
