About the event

What is an Art Healing Night?

 You will have the opportunity to explore paintings by Jim Leach. In small groups, you will have the rare chance to ask the artist about his intentions in creating his piece. You will also be guided in the creating of your own art with the help of Rothwell Gallery's owner, Natalie. You will also explore how contemplating art in a mindful way can offer you a window into your own mind and change your perspective on yourself and the world around you.

Learn more about the artist: Jim Leach

"Jim Leach's interest in art was inspired by his grandfather, who was a landscape artist in Québec. This, combined with his love of the countryside and nature, has created a passion for landscape painting that allows Leach to express the beauty of the natural world through his art work. Leach's landscape paintings employ a bold, impressionistic style. He uses vibrant colours to express the rich beauty of the Canadian landscape. Leach is continually inspired by the works of Tom Thomson, The Group of Seven and René Richard. His landscape paintings are primarily scenes from the Eastern Townships region of Québec and the Ottawa/Gatineau area. He is predominately a plein air painter and enjoys the solitude of painting in situ. Even if he is without his paints, Jim always travels with a sketch book: "I seem to be able to recollect where and when each sketch was done and what the weather conditions were at the time."

Jim Leach and his wife Carol live in Ottawa and have a son, Gregory, daughter, Andrea, two granddaughters Noelle and Amelia, and a dog named Mazy." - An excerpt from Rothwell Gallery
