Milé Murtanovski is one of Prince Edward County's most prolific
artists and one of its greatest advocates; over the last few years he has
painted hundreds of pictures of the people and places that make this island
so special. Pastoral vistas, local farmers, and significant landmarks have
featured prominently in his recent work, but his interests don't
stop there; with a painter's eye, Milé can find the beauty
in the everyday, painting classic cars, architecture, and rendering the human
figure in such a way that his subjects seem to glow from within. Preferring to work in oils, Milé
still enjoys painting in watercolours and inks.
You can see hundreds of examples
of his artwork on his regularly-updated blog.
Now in its seventh year,
the gallery at Small Pond Arts is located minutes from downtown Picton on
an 87-acre art farm. You're invited to explore Small Pond's
walking trails which feature an ever-evolving display of outdoor art
installations. Countless visitors describe the experience as
"magical"; come see for yourself!
