Larry Sherman is an artist with a deep love for the Canadian rural landscape.
Born and educated in Brockville, Ontario, Larry has spent more than four decades maintaining a gallery in Brockville’s commercial district. His first gallery located in Sheridan Mews. After selling his framing shop, Larry is now located at 20 Kincaid Street, where he maintains a studio and gallery to display his artistic talents.
Larry has a deep love for Canadian landscape. He travels and paints extensively throughout Ontario, with a special affinity for the Algonquin Park. He has also made several lengthy painting trips to Quebec, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Newfoundland.
Larry’s deep feelings for landscape and rural subject matter are evident in his detailed attention to colour, composition, and mood of his subject. He renders his visions in watercolour, acrylic, oil and tempera.
For many years Larry taught at St. Lawrence College and Buckhorn School of Fine Art. He eventually conducted his own successful workshops at various resorts as well as group lessons in his own studio which were well attended.
Larry has interviewed on CBC’s Country Report and CTV’s Regional Contact. Larry was also the subject of a feature story in Harrowsmith Magazine with one of his paintings serving as the cover illustration.
Always eager to explore the works and methods of other noted artists, Larry has attended workshops of renowned Canadian artist Jack Reid, Edwin Mathews (of Buckhorn Gallery) and international artist Zoltan Szabo. These newly gained inspirations and techniques are then shared with the students in his own workshops.
Larry’s paintings hang proudly, representing our Canadian past in private and corporate collections throughout the world. You are invited to visit Kincaid Gallery, meet the Artist and revel in the nostalgic glimpses of the past while enjoying the beauty, colours and textures of Canadiana through the eyes of Larry M. Sherman.
