Featured Artist: A.J. VanDrie

Written by Jennifer Anne Burke

This past summer I took a mini-road trip to Warkworth, and while we were walking down Main Street, I could see an artist sitting on the porch of Cheeky Bee Gallery. He was working on a large, vibrant canvas, that drew me right in! This is Ojibway artist A.J. VanDrie.

A.J.’s bold acrylic paintings tell the stories of his ancestors. You will be transported to forests, to the north, to the skies and stars. You will be enchanted by his animals and trees, and the colours that speak to us.

You can view a large variety of his art in Warkworth at Cheeky Bee Gallery. He sells large, medium, and small “gallery style” canvases. They also sell prints of his work. If you’re not near Warkworth, you can view (and purchase) his art online through Haliburton’s Ethel Curry Gallery. Your best option however, is to contact A.J. directly through email (aj.vandrie.art@gmail.com).

Thank you A.J. for sharing your gift of art with us!
