Gallery Feature: Circle Arts-Tobermory

As the warm weather approaches, Circle Arts Gallery in Tobermory is preparing to open for its season. (May 17- October 13) If you are in the area, be sure to visit this gallery. I Love working with the owners; Simon, Glenda and Arlene. Their enthusiasm and support is wonderful.

Below is a great description of my current work, from the owners of Circle Arts...

"Shane Norrie joined Circle Arts three years ago when the business
partnership of Glenda Burrell, Arlene Kennedy and Simon White
first acquired the 39 year old summer art gallery at Tobermory in 2006.

We are excited with Shane's work as he concentrates more on an artistic
focus this season and proud to offer these innovative works for our
collectors and over 35,000 seasonal visitors.

Circle Arts is all about presenting the creative energies of artists
like Shane who are exploring new horizons and expanding our awareness of
new possibilities for the interpretation of our world. "

Be sure to visit their website to look at their roster of artists

Thank you to Circle Arts for the kind words!


I have just completed a series of new canvases & am loving the white-on-white paintings. I suppose it is the influence of a long a Canadian winter! Here are a few of my favourites.
( The yellow and last painting with the black frame are actually ones that I borrowed back from private collections to have photographed, but are probably my all-time favourite paintings.)
