Art by Lucy Manley
See page 50 – 51
Since 1995 Lucy has been teaching art classes for Continuing Education for Loyalist College – Warkworth and the College’s Summer Arts class; Gallery on the Lake in Buckhorn; The Painted Tree in Cobourg; Cavan Arts and by invitation to demonstrate and critique at many art associations in Ontario. Le Monastere, Limoux, France also has been a painting-teaching destination for her since 2005. She has been a member of the East Central Ontario Art Association (ECOAA) since 1979, holding positions of Newsletter Editor, Area Representative, Paint-out Co-ordinator, Vice-President and now President.
Painting full time since 1990, Lucy Manley’s work is represented at several Ontario galleries and other venues. She has exhibited in many group shows as well as solo shows at Lindsay Gallery, Bancroft Gallery, Art Gallery of Peterborough, Gallery on the Lake in Buckhorn, Westmount Gallery in Toronto, and Ontario Shores in Whitby.
Her goal is to capture the landscape and express her feelings and emotions through oil painting. Employing a bold use of colour to heighten the visual impact of each painting, her loose, rapidly executed brushstrokes capture her impressions on canvas. Recently, a new approach of working on black canvas has allowed Lucy to explore the alla prima method of painting landscapes for an even more dramatic effect.
