Luis Fuentes, Untitled, oil on canvas
The Artist-in-Residence Program began in 2010 and over the years participating artists have been Angie Francis, Edie McIntyre, Joyce Devlin, James Postill, Michael Markowsky and Jan Poynter. This year the Artist in Residence is Luis Fuentes, a Peruvian-born artist with an international exhibition record. Fuentes’ work include still lifes, urban architecture and landscapes. Fuentes’ focus in his painting is the quality of light and rich shadows in his Realism-inspired painting methodology. After his artistic residency at the historic lake house, Fuentes’ work will be exhibited at the Vernon Public Art Gallery in partnership with the Mackie Lake House Foundation.
