James Kerr latest artist on exhibit at Arts Place Gallery
Making art has always been part of James Kerr’s routine.
“I started painting when I was about 10, so that means I’ve been doing it for,” said Kerr as he stopped to ponder how exactly he wanted to quantify his years.
“Let’s say: Close to 60 years,” he concluded with a laugh. “It’s pretty much the same story as every other artist; progressed from oil painting to water colours and so on.”
Kerr is the latest artist to be featured at Arts Place Gallery in Port Colborne. His show is called Between Womb and Tomb and it encompasses everything Kerr has done with his career as an artist. One thing he said he’s learned over the last six decades is to not worry too much about how long any particular painting takes to complete.
