1. Margaret Chwialkowska_Farewell to Summer, Ottawa River, 20x16in

Internationally recognized Ottawa artist, Margaret Chwialkowska, works primarily in the Ottawa area, focusing on the banks of the Ottawa River and the forests of the Gatineau Hills, working to capture both, its timeless grandeur and the ever-changing moods.

Her work, distinguished by vibrant, almost fantastical colours and dramatic textures, has been honoured by numerous artistic awards.

She paints “alla prima,” using a palette knife; this technique permits a loose, spontaneous style allowing texture to evolve naturally.

The goal of her painting is to evoke the mood of a natural setting and to capture the feeling of being overwhelmed by the natural, almost magical beauty of a landscape.
