It may be a surprise for some of my customers to see this "art" page on the Simply Shaker website. This is a special artist that I have known for 60 years and have followed his work from almost the beginning... although the first six or seven years were a bit fuzzy. You see, Roly Fenwick is my Father, and I grew up watching him evolve into the painter that he is now. The Pow Wow Emanations series that follows is a collection of a few oils and several watercolours from scenes at the Cape Croker Pow Wow held in July, just north of Wiarton on the lower Bruce Peninsula. The Michael Gibson Gallery at 157 Carling Street in London, Ontario, promotes and sells Roly Fenwick's work, and work that is available can be seen on their web site www.gibsongallery.com. This Pow Wow series is a special collection that is available from the artist (through his son) at Simply Shaker. I hope you enjoy looking at the images!
Graeme Fenwick, Simply Shaker

My project was to join and enter the spirit of the First Nations community and spiritual celebrations and to evoke the texture of their culture through the cadences and movements of the Pow Wow. Colours in the regalia and dance rhythms reflect their spiritual heritage connections.

Roly Fenwick

Artist Biography: Roly Fenwick was born in 1932 in Owen Sound, ON.  After studying art under Alex Colville at Mount Allison University in Sackville, NB, Fenwick moved to Toronto where he was the Art Director for Simpson’s/Sears.  In 1968 Tony Urquhart was seeking professors for the University of Western Ontario’s visual arts department and hired Fenwick to be a painting & drawing professor.  Fenwick remained at UWO until he retired in 1989, teaching countless students along with Paterson Ewen and Duncan de Kergommeaux.  Since retiring, Fenwick has maintained a steady studio practice in London, ON and at his cottage in Big Bay, ON. Roly Fenwick is well known for his lush oil paintings that are inspired by the landscape of the Bruce Peninsula, which Fenwick refers to as his “ancestral bloodroots”.  Fenwick explains that his “interest is not in scenery but in probing to reveal the forces beneath the veneer”.   His paintings thoroughly reflect this interest in revealing the sources of nature and inner spirit of the Canadian landscape. His paintings are in the permanent public collections of the Art Gallery of Hamilton, Tom Thomson Art Gallery, McIntosh Art Gallery and Museum London. He spends his summers at his cottage at Big Bay on the Bruce Peninsula and spends the rest of the year at his home in London, ON.
