Did you know about WalterFedy | Staff Picks?
We are celebrating WalterFedy and their commitment to supporting local artists! For ArtsPay’s first art rental partnership with WalterFedy, we asked staff to choose their favourite works from AP member submissions. Want to see what they came up with? RSVP by Sunday April 21st to email@example.com and join us for the opening reception on April 24th. We’ll also be screening Dwight Storring’s documentary, Finding John Lingwood – an exploration into the architectural history of the KW region.
Also coming soon – WalterFedy and ArtsPay are working together to offer young curators opportunities to develop, source, and install their own exhibitions. We love art rental programs – the artist gets paid, and you get new work on your walls for a fraction of the price! If you’re interested in learning more, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Nature is the impetus for Nancy Farrell's creative process. At its core, her process of art-making has a contemplative, spiritual understanding of the natural world. Her response is to select, distill, convert and arrange textures, shapes, marks and colours that emerge from remembered landscapes.
Farrell has always been intrigued by the endless potential of abstract and non-objective painting. These forms of expression challenge her with an unparalleled means of conveying emotion and mood. Her painting begins by applying random colours, lines and shapes. The painting surface develops slowly with layer upon layer of paint. Art speaks of things that cannot be easily expressed, and each painting develops a personality of its own by tapping into unconscious and conscious memories. Each drip, run and tool mark creates a constant flow of problem solving. The painting is finished when balance or a feeling of resolution is achieved.
For Waterloo Moves, Jane van Pelt shared her images of the region through the seasons.
Her shots were were accompanied by saxophonist Carl Ng.
