Eclipse Art Contest
Every year the Eclipse Art Gallery invites talented painters to submit three entries to be prominently displayed at Deerhurst Resort’s front desk for a year. This year’s Eclipse Art Gallery contest winner is Monica Morrill, whose unique colourful paintings will brighten and delight resort guests and visitors for the next twelve months.
A self-taught artist, Monica began creating artwork using acrylic paints on canvas as a way to fill her home with colourful images of nature for her family to enjoy. She aspires to illustrate the supernatural aspects of the world around us and to capture a sense of peace and tranquility that is sometimes overlooked. She was born on Southern Vancouver Island where she grew up exploring the beaches, forests and mountains of the west coast. Always interested in art, she spent much of her time drawing pictures of wildlife. She moved off the island to complete a university degree and spent the next several years living in various cities across Canada. She currently resides in Ottawa with her husband and children.

Making Snowmen 16″x 20″
by Terry Ananny
Terry’s bright and colourful acrylic paintings of hockey, children at play and seasonal village scenes cheerfully capture the spirit of Canadian life. Her early years spent in summers on Lake Muskoka and traveling to Quebec enriched the artist with lasting impressions of the beautiful Canadian landscape and diverse Canadian culture. Her works are held in many Canadian and international corporate collections. Canadian Prime Ministers, Governor Generals and the Government of Canada have collected her work over the past two decades.

Chris Keene attended Rhode Island School of Design. Chris created for several years stunning visual effects and digital characters for Walt Disney. His work is prominently displayed in several live-action and feature animated films, two of which were nominated for an Academy Award. Keene returned to Toronto in 2011 to return to his artistic roots. The abundance of wilderness and animal life soon became the driving influence in Chris’s work. Keene turned to acrylic paints on canvas as his creative medium. His graphic skills from Disney are some of the techniques Keene utilizes to create his unique compositions.
