We are pleased to introduce Ottawa area artists Terry Ananny and Cheryl Chartier this month in our group Show, Fall Flavour.
Terry Ananny is a full-time painter currently living in Ottawa, Ontario. Terry Ananny’s works consist of brightly colored paintings of children at play in the great Canadian outdoors which cheerfully recapture the unique magical moments of childhood. Terry received her early education in Toronto at Meisterschaft College and in 1975 moved to Ottawa to attend Carleton University. In 1989 Terry Ananny joined the Ottawa Art Association and participated in numerous juried exhibitions winning many awards for her acrylic paintings.
Her works are held in over 250 Canadian and international corporate collections. Canada’s Prime Ministers, Governor Generals and the Government of Canada have collected her work over the last decade. Her work is seen on UNICEF cards, Canada Save the Children cards, Children’s Wish Foundation Cards, Christmas cards, book and CD covers. Her work has been submitted for a Canadian postage stamp and Canadian coin.
Cheryl Chartier is an Ottawa based artist who has lived in Britain, Wales and the Channel Islands. She has been involved in the visual arts for over 40 years as both a professional photographer and fine artist. After a serious car injury, she turned to painting fulltime in 1985. Her love of landscape has taken her across Canada many times , sketching and recording images for her paintings.
Her paintings can be found in collections the world over and are enjoyed for their strong colour and energetic movement and distinctly Canadian style. She has been represented by many galleries in Ontario in both solo and group shows .
