The Artists of Colour welcomes back artist Angelo Sherma to this year’s show. Born and raised in Detroit Michigan.
Sherman was always watching his older brother Rocky draw and paint. Angelo Sherman's work has a dynamic range of styles as noted by local collectors. The reason being is that he has taught himself to paint and without any guidance formulated his conclusion as to what his art is supposed to be and look like. Working at a major Detroit Museum for over a decade and studying the old masters hasn't hurt either. Sherman doesn't like repeating himself like making little cake molds of his work, instead he decides which scene or portrait should fit a particular style, like a movie director - perhaps impressionism would fit a car racing down the street opposed to realism. Maybe a dog growling would look better in an abstraction. Sherman has won several awards over the years and continues to experiment with different materials and mediums, often referring to himself as a mixed medium artist with his collages, and oil /acrylic combinations. The direction Sherman is presently going is in impressionism and he continues to capture color action and movement.

Connie Lee-Turner Fine Artist
Connie Lee-Turner was born and raised in Windsor, ON. After being intrigued by the many styles of art and the use of so many mediums used to produce it, Connie decided to take art lessons as a hobby. That hobby has now become her artistic voice which gently speaks with honesty and sincerity about the subjects which she depicts in her paintings. Connie is no longer hobbyist but a working artist who continues to elevate her work to another level. Connie is a charter member of The Artists of Colour.
Norte Dame Basilica
The immense stone building Norte Dame Basilica of Montreal was built from 1824 to 1829 in the Romantic Gothic revival style. It features massive twin towers and a Gothic arch recessed portico. This beautiful, majestic church inspired me to put it on canvas. I hope I have captured that drama that the light will produce when it is cast upon an object and its path reshapes a whole new perspective of our subjects while furthering our knowledge of it.
