Updated: Nov 18, 2023

MIDLAND, NOVEMBER 3rd, 2023 – Quest Art School & Gallery, a cherished cultural hub in Midland, is thrilled to announce the opening of internationally renowned artist Rod Prouse’s latest exhibition, “Shimmer: A Painter’s Ode to Water.”

“As an artist growing up experiencing the ravines of Toronto, the grandeur of Georgian Bay, the mysteries of Algonquin, I have been especially struck by the role played by aspects of water. This series of works celebrates one of the most alluring and mysterious of water’s presentations...shimmer.”

Rod Prouse, a graduate of the Ontario College of Art, 1968, exhibits mainly in painting, printmaking, photo-based and video art. His professional career has so far seen 35 solo exhibitions, and as many group exhibitions, across Canada, the U.S.A., England and Germany. Solo exhibitions have included such public institutions as the McMichael Canadian Collection. Over the years, he has received numerous teaching and project grants, as well as awards of recognition for photography and design. His work is included in private collections in Europe, Asia and North America. His current paintings reference Canadian landscape in a refreshing contemporary style. Rod lives beside Georgian Bay and is inspired by its wind, rocks and water.
