Spirit of the Wind: Artifacts & Adventures || Scott McNichol & Homer Watson

This year we highlight the work of Scott McNichol. In his exhibit Spirit of the Wind: Artifacts & Adventures, McNichol is inspired by the vessels that find their power in the wind. McNichol captures the natural ebb and flow created by breezes in the lines and shapes of his structures. The effect is a vibrant interpretation of beauty and rhythm. Scott McNichol graduated from the University of Guelph with a degree in Fine Arts and Philosophy, McNichol is also a graduate of Journalism Studies from Conestoga College in Kitchener. McNichol has been a dedicated art educator at the Gallery since 1994, and holds the title of Associate Artist. He currently teaches High School art at Scholar’s Hall Private School in Kitchener and adults at Conestoga College. Scott’s passion is found in sculpture, but he is also recognized for his acrylic paintings and extensive work in photography. His work can been seen in public and private art collections both in Canada and abroad.
