Gordon Wilson

Gord Wilson

Gord worked in advertising for seven years, was an art teacher for 30 years and Art Department Head and Principal of night school art for 15 years prior to retirement. He has also adjudicated at several art groups in Toronto and Scarborough during his teaching career.

Gord is a graduate of The Ontario College of Art and University of Toronto in Fine Art. He is also an elected member of the Society of Canadian Artists and the Watercolour Society of Canada, a current exhibitor of watercolours with The East Central Ontario Art Association, PineRidge Arts Council and several local art shows. Gord has received awards and accolades in a variety of juried shows across Ontario.

He likes to include all seasons in his landscape paintings, emphasizing contrast, negative/positive, shadows, composition and centre of interest. He creates atmosphere and perspective by using masses of colour in contrast with realistic detail of the centre of interest.

Gord currently teaches art to all ages and holds weekend workshops for adults.
