Jamie Dickson, Artist, Burgessville

Jamie Dickson is an artist who lives in Burgessville, Ontario, Canada. While trained at the Ontario College of Art (AOCA) in the early 70s he has only recently returned to painting in his retirement years starting in 2013. Born in Quebec City, Jamie spent much of his youth traveling across Canada as an army brat living on CFB bases like Chilliwack, BC and Valcartier, QC. Upon graduation from OCAD he settled in Toronto where he worked in the design field for several years and eventually established, with his wife Sharryn, an Industrial Design Consultancy which operated out of the Design Centre at King St. and Dufferin. Since he retired in 2013 he has renovated the loft space of his garage into an artist’s studio and has finally found time to paint as much as he would like. He also pursues Life Drawing through a program offered by the Woodstock Art Gallery.

Aidan Urquhart, Artist, London

Aidan Urquhart was educated at the University of Western Ontario and Fanshawe College in studio and art theory.  He has been exhibiting his work across Canada since the early 1990s.  Fascinated by the dynamics of communication, Urquhart explores with colour, images and ideas that at first glance, might seem at odds with each other.  He has completed residencies at the McIntosh Gallery-University of Western Ontario and the Banff Centre for the Arts. His work can be found in numerous public and private collections including The Winnipeg Art Gallery, Museum London, The McIntosh Gallery, St.Thomas/Elgin Art Centre, The National Archives- Ottawa, and the Canada Council Art Bank.
