Poppy Project

I’m pleased to announce that the Poppy Project is officially completed! My adult art students and I are happy to donate our time and expenses for the six months it took to produce the mural.

I assigned each artist a space and a painting from the Old Masters, such as Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Cezanne etc., to be converted to fit the mural so it can form a poppy from Georgia O’Keefe collection.  It was a complicated venture and I would love to see funds arriving to donate to the Veterans.

Also, I welcome anyone to come visit the gallery and see the mural in person. It is stunning and very engaging.  Please come visit the gallery/art school in Sidney.

More About the Project

Who Created the Poppy Project?

The Poppy Project was envisioned by Odette Laroche, and completed with the help of her students. All of the contributing artists were assigned a certain number of paintings, with the accompanying colour palette. The intention behind each painting was to stay within the teachings of the old masters, and to recreate some of their styles while constrained within the guidelines.

What is the Poppy Project?

The entire composition contains 30 separate paintings by 10 different painters. The project was on display at my art gallery in Sidney, and we’re currently searching for a sponsor to display the composition.

Where Do the Donations Go?

We’re currently accepting any donations to the project. With Remembrance Day just around the corner, we intended to use this project as a way to raise awareness for the Veterans, and to donate all proceeds we collect.
