Ferry Building Gallery

Join internationally renowned painter and author, Robert Genn, for an inspiring and informative presentation. Plenty of time for Q&As.

Genn writes a number of other art publications including Painters Keys, a bi-weekly newsletter for artists in 115 countries. His paintings are in collections worldwide.

Robert Genn was born in Victoria, B.C. Canada in 1936. His formal training included the University of Victoria, the University of British Columbia and the Art Center School in Los Angeles, California.

Recognized as one of Canada’s most accomplished painters, his work is well known internationally. While his subjects are universal (he has painted in many countries), he excels in portraying Canada. He is perhaps best known for his work on the West Coast and in the Rocky Mountains.

Robert’s technique includes a tradition of strong design with patterns of color and form, with a pervasive sense of personal style. Grand themes are transposed onto small panels and larger canvases in a manner similar to members of the Group of Seven. Most of Robert’s current work is in acrylic. He has also done considerable work in oils, watercolour, and silk screen printing.
