Biography: A retired aerospace executive, Garth has drawn and painted most of his life. Work and travel took him away from his art for a few years but he never lost sight of his dream to pursue art in a fashion he could only imagine. Garth pursued his art interests using regular pencils and coloured pencils, ink, pastels, oils, acrylics and watercolour, the latter being his passion. His art subjects include landscapes, structures, people (posed and non-posed), animals and abstracts, each with its own unique challenge. People are his passion and he has been commissioned to do portraits as well as other subjects. Garth spent two years in Mbarara, Uganda, teaching school at which time he kept his art alive by drawing or painting the people, places and animals he encountered. He has sold his works in Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, the U.K., Ireland, Scotland, the United States and Canada. An electronic reproduction of Garth’s works has been accepted and shown in the Gaudemater Gallery, Czestochowa, Poland. Garth is a member of the Local Colour Art Group and the Arts Council of Selkirk, Manitoba. He is a member of the Eastern Manitoba Artists Co-op. His work was accepted for show at an open juried exhibition sponsored by the Manitoba Society of Artists. He is part of the team that was responsible in establishing the “Art Rocks” group, a non-profit organization for the purpose of providing an exhibition and outlet for amateur artists.
