We offer links to our artists, from our website to their websites. If you do not have a website and have an interest in creating a website we can introduce you to our webmaster and other professionals to promote your art. Here are a few examples of our members’ work: Harry Cook's Blacksmith Shop in Washago in 1920's (at Muskoka Street, Washago) was part of the Village of Washago from the late 1800s until 1979. Harry Cook worked as the blacksmith from 1919 to 1979. The shop location is now Timbermart. - Artist: Cindy Cook Marta-Lynne Dawe It took retirement to venture back into my passion for art and for the last 12 months I have enjoyed rekindling my love for painting. Most of my work has been using acrylic paint in landscapes, particularly old structures with loads of character. The century home featured at left was actually built using the stones found on the very farm land it sat in the small village of Annan, Ontario near Georgian Bay. To personalize I like to include a fur family member in my paintings. That’s Mikey waiting at the front door to come in from the cold. This 2019 acrylic painting is entitled, “First snowfall in Annan”. Ann L. Johnson Ann grew up, went to school and worked in the town of Weston, Ontario before it was part of the GTA. She was always interested in art, tried a little water colour, some oil painting, pencil sketching, and now paints with acrylic. She was a member of her high school art club, took evening art classes at Humber College. She took several Interior Decorating courses at Humber College, which included the study of colour and perspective drawing. Several years went by when the demands of life superseded her hobby and art was put on the back burner. In 2006 she and her husband, Gord retired in Washago. She was inspired by the beauty of the surrounding area and wanted to try to capture it. She has studied with local artists and is challenging herself to try new subjects. Ann is a member of the Washago Art Club and paints in acrylic. She is enjoying the fellowship and is continuing to learn from the very talented members of the art club. One of her paintings, “Severn River Livery,” is at top right. Severn River Livery started in 1904 and survived the fire in 1906. It was sold to George and Coleman Marshal in 1908. Located on Cowbell Lane. Nadene Flear The railway has always been an integral part of Washago. The impressive steam locomotive seen here speaks of a bygone era. ARTIST: Cheryl Lawder Thomas and Emma Cooper left England and emigrated to Upper Canada. Settling in a cabin north of Black River. Thomas named area “Coopers Falls” in 1876”. It is the home of Coopers Construction and is still operating. ARTIST: Mary Dufy When I was deciding what to paint, there were several coyotes yelping in the distance.  Coyotes have been here during the time of the early settlers, as well as today. The gingerbread style Atherley Junction Railway Station was built by the Grand Trunk Railway in what is now Ramara in 1897, but it was destroyed by a fire in 1931. It was rebuilt after 1931 by Canadian National Railway. - ARTIST: Marta Dawe ARTIST: Vera Mesec The Little Falls Bridge The painting depicts a scene around 1942. It has been a concrete bridge for many decades, although it may have been wooden. The little bridge can be seen off the existing bridge on Hwy 169. “A misty morning on the Black River” in Washago Ontario - ARTIST: Judy MacDonald ARTIST: Craig Welbourn The artist reduced the rich and complex history of Washago to its essence--- the train, which defined Washago in its early days. Red & White Canada’s colours. ARTIST: Karen Hudgin “Lead a Horse” The Draft horse is a versatile breed used today and in our past for a multitude of purposes, including farming, logging and recreation. Their strength, patience and a docile temperament made them indispensable to generations of pre-industrial farmers and logging. ARTIST: Jan Turner Voyageurs Peter and Maurice left what is now known as Washago. Packed with their furs, traveled many waterways by canoe. They eventually headed down the Mighty Ottawa River to Montreal to deliver their furs. ARTIST: Lee McBain Little Falls Jumping Bridge A popular spot for local folks to come to jump and swim in the 1950’s and ‘60’s ARTIST: Kathy Nicholson "Fishing at the Old Mill" Washago’s old mill has been subject matter for many artists and favourite fishing spot. In mid 1800's, Quetton St.George built the sawmill and later 1872 a grist mill was added.
