REEL PRIDE IS PROUD TO PRESENT
THE REEL PRIDE FILM FESTIVAL
ONLINE ART SHOW

 

In the spirit of a Festival with a large variety of diverse film work, the lure of an art show complementing our queer inspired filmmakers provides Reel Pride with the opportunity to display more of our community’s best creations.

This year’s theme is ISOLATION/CONNECTION.  Every one of us has been touched by some and likely several forms of isolation in 2020.  Many of us have experienced isolation growing up, coming out, not coming out, being alone, being surrounded or witnessing loneliness.  We also may identify with connection with ourselves, with ideas and with others.

This year's artists are: Maria Lutz, Nicholas Burns, Doug Holroyd, Graeme Brown, and Tim Haughian.  Click here to see other Artist Pages.


ARTIST: DOUG HOLROYD
EMAIL: holroydd@mts.net

BIO:  I'm trying to learn a variety of water colour techniques.  I love to do paintings of people as portraits or as part of their home landscape.



TITLE: Cambodian Kids
YEAR:  2020
MEDIUM: water colour
ARTIST: Doug Holroyd
PRICE: NFS

"Cambodian Kids" is of three happy kids, enjoying life as kids do wherever they are, not aware of their family's or their country's relative poverty.



TITLE: Walking on Wolseley
YEAR: 2020
MEDIUM: water colour
ARTIST: Doug Holroyd
PRICE: NFS

"Walking on Wolseley" celebrates the fact that in spite of Covid, we can still enjoy going for a walk in the fresh air.


The painting: "Cambodian Kids" was from a photograph I took while traveling in Asia.  The kids are carefree and are having fun looking at an iPad.  My holiday was a four week trip including: Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand.  I returned home on February 2nd.  At this time Covid was a real concern in Asia, but was largely not on the radar in North America.  I'm very grateful that my traveling was completed without interference, before the world turned upside down.

The second painting: "Walking on Wolseley" captures one of the freedoms the Covid era gave to us.  We were allowed  to walk down the middle of Wolseley Avenue without sharing the road with vehicles.  People reconnected with the joy of being outside in our beautiful city, and with the simple pleasure of walking.
