Eclipse Art Gallery at Deerhurst Resort
We’d like to extend a warm welcome to Eclipse gallery!
Our unique art collection is beaming of wonderful artwork by our favourite artists but also by new members in our gallery family.
Our art show is titled ‘Back to Normal’.
As we all agree, we have been in a confusing and restless period. Our artists have felt this very much so and have poured their energy and (artistic) emotions into their art while isolating. Viewing the artwork, you will recognize that the subject matter often shows the solace and personal reflection the artist put into the work while creating. We hope that these great art pieces will bring you a feeling of peace and wellbeing here at the gallery and maybe at your home!
The gallery is open to the public and we are inviting you to come and visit and view the artwork at your convenience.
Please contact us if you would like to meet our staff for personal assistance and to purchase artwork. We are at the gallery from 9.30 am until noon and by appointment in the afternoon.
2021 Eclipse Art Gallery Contest
During the 125th anniversary of Canada as a nation (2017) & following year the celebration of 125 years of Algonquin Park (2018) Deerhurst Resort & Eclipse Art Gallery have organized an Art Contest for artists to enter their artistic impressions of Muskoka and Algonquin Park.
Deerhurst Resort and Eclipse Gallery are now in their fifth year of opening the content, having received submissions from across Ontario and have found selecting the winning artist amongst the high-quality art challenging but successful.
The prime location of the chosen artwork, at the front desk of the resort’s main entrance, has given first-time visitors a glimpse into the exquisite natural beauty of our area.
This year’s winner is Lori Meeboer! Lori lives and works in Corbyville, Ontario and is a full-time artist. She takes her inspiration from the beauty of the rugged Canadian landscape and the determination of the Canadian Spirit.
Colour and texture play a vital role in her work and she uses them to capture a moment and invoke a memory. Lori works primarily in acrylic and her focus is mainly on abstract Canadian landscapes.
It is her goal that her work will remind you of a childhood cottage, favourite camping trip or perhaps a Sunday drive in the country.

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.
