Mural Projects

Early 2017, the Economic Development Task Force invited local artists to participate in a program designed to showcase local artists, beautify the area and provide a unique attraction for residents and visitors alike. In May 2017, five murals painted on  4' x 8' pieces of plywood were unveiled and placed at the 5 community centres in the Township. Since then, several other murals have been commissioned and placed at various locations around the Township. We invite you to click on the link below to see pictures of our murals, along with details about their locations and the artists involved.

This is a painting of all the creatures that play in North Frontenac hidden from our view….waiting to use their home when we are gone.   In total there are over 40 separate critters in the mural….some are hidden…but all are in view, you just have to take the time to find them all.  I used artist acrylic paint for the painting, and topped with three coats of Spar Urethane (used on boat exterior for weather protection) which made the image come alive.

Title of Mural :  Fun At The Lake

As our mural was going into a playground, we wanted to add as many elements as possible for children to find such as boats, (kayak, windsurfer, canoe, pontoon, fishing boat),  activities (camping, swimming, fishing), animals (Owl, Raccoon), birds (Loons, Hawks), people, plants, etc. The idea was to make it exciting for children and parents to enjoy together.

 “I wanted to do something similar to the piece I did last year, so I continued with the same galactic concept to form a series of paintings. Instead of copying the design completely, I added a silhouetted foreground that closely resembles the scenery of the township. Wanting to, again, bring the idea of connectedness, and show that we are all just a continuation of another.”

 “For years Waite' s beach served the the community and I wanted to show the beach in action with  typical  beach activities from the 60's to 90's. I added a canoe with a male in it dressed in an older plaid style and hat as well as a picture of one of the local people sitting on a rock at the water's edge.  I combined all this to define Waite's Beach.”
