Works by Dorothy Knowles

March 4 -21, 2020


Winchester Galleries is pleased to announce the Blossoming exhibition at the onset of spring to celebrate nature’s revival by Dorothy Knowles’ alluring depictions of blooming gardens. This stunning collection of floral representations brings the novelty of spring’s atmosphere indoors. Opening windows to the charm of the natural revitalization of the earth take the viewer to the absolute fascination of living in nature.

Dorothy Knowles was born on April 7, 1927, on a farm near Unity, Saskatchewan. Early on as a child, she was interested in hoeing, planting, and watering the flowers on the family’s land. She is well-known for her landscape paintings and has had various important exhibitions across Canada and the United States. Knowles has mastered a variety of media including acrylic, oil, and watercolour. Knowles works in a range of scales from expansive Canadian landscapes to small astonishingly detailed watercolours. The smaller works are as impressive and engaging as the large ones.
