Rural Roots

June 29, 2019 - July 14, 2019

Rural Roots Painting

The Oxtongue Craft Cabin & Gallery is pleased to present Rural Roots, a collection of 50 oil paintings by artist Janine Marson.

Marson grew up on her family’s Timber Trail Resort along the banks of the Oxtongue River at the doorstep to Algonquin Park. “My roots are very strong and impact everything I do in both art and life,” says Marson.

As a child Marson listened, observed and allowed all of her senses to absorb the beauty around her. In the 1960s, a chance encounter with Group of Seven artist A.J. Casson inspired Marson to become a painter. She earned a B.A. in Fine Arts from the University of Guelph and a diploma in Design Art from Georgian College. Marson teaches art at her Huntsville studio and the Haliburton School of Art & Design. The effects of colour and light are the driving forces in her artwork.

This collection includes many familiar locations such as Oxtongue River, Algonquin and Arrowhead Provincial Parks, Dwight Beach, Ragged Falls and Big East River. “My art is a way of expressing my deep love of the land and all the beauty in it,” Marson states.

Janine believes the simple things in life help us feel a sense of connection and draw us closer together. Rural Roots is her celebration of those connections.

Rural Roots: Saturday, June 29 – Sunday, July 14;

Opening Reception: Saturday, June 29, 1-4pm

Special thanks to Algonquin Outfitters, North Art Supplies and Oxtongue Lake for Arts and Culture (OLAC)
