Along the Roads of the Cambrian Shield

M. Paul Kelly

October 9 - November 13, 2004

The WKP Kennedy Public Art Gallery has organized a touring exhibition of the current work of Michael Paul Kelly. Kelly is an artist and Associate Professor of Fine Arts at Nipissing University, North Bay, Ontario. This is the first stop for an exhibition that will stop at nine galleries in Ontario, Quebec and Alberta.

A graduate of Central Technical School in Toronto in the mid sixties, Kelly began his design and painting career with a definite post-impressionist influence. Early contributors to Kelly's development were Charles Goldhamer, Virginia Luz, Bob Ross and Doris McCarthy. Kelly went on from Toronto to spend three years studying art and design in England where he was deeply influenced by the Fauvist concepts of Henri Matisse, and the design & typography principles of the Bauhaus teacher, L?szl? Moholy-Nagy.

The exhibition consists of thirty drawings and paintings selected from works completed during the five years previous to the tour, and concentrating on images resulting from the artist's rambles through the Cambrian Shield areas of northern Ontario and Quebec.
