Phil Chadwick: Artist - Lyndhurst Art & Culture Tour
Date and time
Historic Love Blacksmith Shop
Directions: Between the bridge and Cook St. Across the street from the United Church.
Offered in English.
Artist Statement: I paint outside - nothing between my eyes and the inspiration. That special connectivity gets into the pigments and you realize that we are all stewards of the land, privileged to appreciate its beauty during our lifetime but responsible for leaving it better off for the future and all inhabitants...
A man of many hats, Phil was born and raised along the St. Lawrence and trained at Queens University as a nuclear physicist. He has worked for Environment Canada as a meteorologist since 1976 specializing in severe weather.
He has farmed, raised bees, written weather and nature books and articles, lectured and instructed classes, seminars and presentations in art, meteorology and the science of Tom Thomson. An avid canoeist, birder and naturalist, Phil paints mostly "en plein air" allowing his passion for life and the environment to shine through the canvas.
He started painting in 1967 and never stopped. He has, to date, completed an impressive 2, 272 paintings. Stop by and see what he is painting today!
