About

Landscape and Still Live Oil Paintings

I grew up under the big skies of southern Saskatchewan, with its fertile prairies and endless horizon. I have lived and worked for more than four decades in rural Ontario, surrounded by a patchwork of compact fields, wood lots, rivers and lakes. These sights and sensations have inspired and infused themselves in my painting.

I try to capture the immediacy and intimacy I feel with the natural world and my sense of place within it. I trained and worked as an illustrator for half of my life. I paint now with oil on canvas, linen or wood surfaces that I prepare myself. This manual process is important to my creativity. I like to connect with the surfaces that will hold the images I want to re-create – those images, patterns, colours, and sensations that the world all around us inspires in me.

Elora Fergus Studio Tour

EVER WONDER WHAT AN ARTIST’S STUDIO REALLY LOOKS LIKE?

Here’s your chance to get a look behind the scenes. Take a self-guided tour and meet artists where they live and work. Many artists and craftspeople will open their studios for two consecutive fall weekends.

The Studio Tour is completely free of charge. You’ll get a chance to meet directly with the artists, and often see work not shown in gallery settings. You’ll visit the working spaces of both established and emerging artists, from basements to self contained studios
