Quietude – A New Collection of Paintings by Susan Paterson at Fog Forest Gallery

Quietude – A New Collection of Paintings by Susan Paterson

October 15, 2020 – November 6, 2020

Quietude is a word that describes ‘a state of being calm and peaceful’.   Surely, as the world feels calamitous and filled with anxiety, a little pause to rest in the beauty and peace of finely executed paintings by Susan Paterson is a welcomed change.

This exhibition of recent work examines Susan’s exploration into still life and landscape painting. Her ‘old world’ approach to her subject reflects the time honoured traditions of patience, attention to detail and developing one’s craft to an extraordinary level.

This exhibition will not be ‘opening’ with an artist’s reception due to Covid 19 concerns however the gallery will be available to local viewers on Thursday and Friday of every week as well as being available for a private viewing at any time by arranging an appointment in advance. This exhibition continues until November 6, 2020.




Fog Forest Gallery is open Thursday and Friday from 10am – 5pm and by appointment –

The opening reception will be on October 24th, from 1:00-4:00 pm.





Calling for donations for Art Auction for ElderDog

I am reaching out to you today to tell you about our upcoming Art Auction for ElderDog. Due to the many restrictions around COVID-19, this year’s event will be online only. The event will be set up as a facebook auction and the platform will be very simple. The art will be uploaded as an album with details about the artist and the work and bids will be taken in the comment section of each photo. As you may know, ElderDog is a solely volunteer run charitable organization supporting aging dogs and aging people. Our work has become even more critical in this time of COVID-19 and the organization has been granted essential service status. For some seniors we have been their only contact with the outside world during this time of isolation, while adhering to all public health protocols and PPE requirements. This auction will be different than those in previous years in that all pieces will need to be a 100% donation to the event. We totally understand if this is not possible for you at this difficult time and we respect that you too may be struggling during this unprecedented shut down of most cultural events, limiting your ability to sell your work by traditional means. Your consideration is all we ask. If you are able to support this event with a donation, large or small,100% of the proceeds from the auction will be used in the continuing support of seniors and their canine companions through the work of ElderDog Canada. If you would like to be involved and are able to make a donation, your contribution would be so appreciated.

Please send any donation information to this email address,


and include the following details:

Further details will be shared as we approach the auction date. The auction will begin in early November and should you know someone who may wish to participate, don’t hesitate to share this email. All artists are welcome.
