Butler, John

Jon Butler, a retired newspaper executive who changed his clothes to enjoyu the passing seasons of life, has been capturing La Cloche light for over 30 years.  He concentrates on solitary and contemplative landscapes and atmospheric effects.

The photographs exemplify Jon’s unique sense of light.  Exhibition photographs are usually taken at dawn before sunrise with no filters or digital enhancement.  All are in a limited series of 10 or less.

Jon’s photographs are available at Turners Gallery of Little Current, The Art Gallery of Sudbury gift shop, Killarney Park Store, The Red Dog Whitefish Falls and  Since 2001, Jon has had seven solo exhibitions, three two person shows and participated in 50 juried and group exhibits.

Artwork revolving around the artists emotions and environment, setting  on each specific piece. Her artwork has a wide range from abstract to nature themed and anything in between. Embracing her viewers and commissioners ideas is what truly brightens up her artwork. She believes taking an idea and making it come to life for someone is remarkable. Working in large scale canvas or large murals is what makes her artwork special.

Girard, Vikki

I have been painting since 1987.  Lessons for 7 years gave me the basics I needed to continue.  I paint in oil, acrylics, sketching, and have taken workshops in colour pencil, watercolour, pastels and much more.  Every workshop or lesson I have attended, I have learned from it.  I use it in every art piece that I produce.  I read many books about techniques or different kinds of mediums.  This is how I learned my trade.

My artwork consists of painting on any material that the paint will adhere to.   Subjects I like to paint are landscapes, portraits, animals, birds, and still life.  I have done Woodcarving Clay modeling, Ceramics, Soapstone carving.

I became a teacher 2001 when a friend pushed me to do so. . My classes are in oil and acrylics. I also give workshops in clay on boards, clay figures, palette knife painting and painting a picture in one-day oil or acrylic.

I joined the Rayside-Balfour Whitewater Brush & Palette Art Club in 2001 and have been president for a few years now.

In 2010 I judged an Art Exhibition for the Cavalcade of Colours in Dowling, Ontario.  For the last 2 years I occasionnally go to Ste Etienne and art with students.  I also have fonated my artwork for fundraisers

The Manitoulin Fine Arts Association has evolved since the late 1900’s. Since 1986 arts and crafts exhibitions, workshops, annual lace camps and the annual “Meet the Artisans” events were organized under the leadership of the original Gore Bay Manitoulin Art Club. In 1999, artists within that club formed a separate branch as a continuation of growth, entitled the Manitoulin Fine Arts Association.

The newly formed organization established a mandate which includes professional development and a desire to participate in the juried Northern Ontario Artists Association’s annual exhibition. MFAA has grown to a membership of over 50 and as of 2003 incorporated as a non-profit organization.

To encourage the development of original visual art by providing opportunities for professional development, experimentation and exhibition. To encourage the appreciation of original visual art with in the group and in the community.



Marotta, Stella


From a young age, Stella knew she was destined to serve her community. At just 16, long before most women were expected to enter further education, Stella begged a loan from her uncle to put herself through Teachers’ College. This was the first step toward her successful 40-year teaching career, touching the lives of many generations of youth.

Although Stella is now retired, she continues to teach and serve the community every day. Her commitment to the arts community is astounding. Stella was the owner and founder of Sudbury’s first commercial art gallery “La Galleria” and Sudbury’s first craft store “The Artisan”. Her passion for encouraging and promoting local artists inspired her to sit on a wide array of boards and committees within the community, including the Sudbury Theatre Centre, Sudbury Symphony Orchestra and Artists on Elgin. She also gives art-based workshops, has published two children’s activity books, and is founder and part owner of Calendart Inc., an art calendar company promoting Canadian artists.

Stella’s workshop is a haven for women (over 100 participants in the past 15 years) who are taking care of aging parents, babysitting grandchildren, juggling families and careers, struggling with terminal illness, recently widowed or who simply need respite from their daily responsibilities. She welcomes everyone with conversation, conviviality, advice and encouragement and through art allows them to relax, to forget about life in general and to explore their own creativity. She is a source of inspiration and motivation to others to become more involved in community fundraising events. She is the initiator and driving force behind the Little Black Dress and Pearls Soiree, an event that brings together 500 women in the community to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer screening and research. This mother of four and grandmother of ten deserves much recognition for a lifetime of astounding achievement.

Mullula, Linda

Snow Shadows on Long Lake - Acrylic

Secluded shorelines, quiet forest trails, snowy riverbanks; scenes of Northern Ontario that convey a sense of peace and solitude.  Mullola’s paintings invite the viewer on a journey to explore a world that lies beyond the hustle of everyday life, quiet times spent walking through the forest or canoeing on a lake.  These are the moments that Mullola captures in her paintings, moments that make you pause, reflect and breathe.

Born in Sudbury in Northern Ontario, Mullola’s childhood interest in art began by watching her Mother paint. “My Mother always enjoyed painting and I would stand behind her as she sat at her easel and watch her paint. Our home was full of my Mother’s paintings, including a huge wall mural that she painted on our living room wall. I believe my dream to become a painter began while watching my Mother, and it is a dream I have pursued all of my life.”

In high school, Mullola studied art for four years and in the final year focused on painting with oils. “Just the smell of the paint brought back memories of my childhood”. I absolutely loved my painting class, I was definitely in my element. I had dreams of going to art school and eventually becoming a full-time artist.”

Mullola’s personal journey as an artist has been a continuous, slowly evolving journey of learning, studying and practicing her skills.  The demands of motherhood and earning a living took precedence in her early 20’s and 30’s, however all the while she was learning through art courses, workshops, reading, experimentation and travel.

Through the eighties and nineties night courses at Cambrian College and classes with local artists allowed Mullola to develop her painting and composition skills. Involvement with the local art clubs and artists enhanced her development and provided the knowledge needed to pursue her art. In 1989, while living in England, she studied water colour at Meopham College, an experience she thoroughly enjoyed.  It was through experimentation with a variety of different mediums that Mullola has found her preference for working in acrylics. Through years of practice and experimentation her abilities and techniques with acrylics have developed.

 Mullola’s dream to one day be a full-time artist was realized in 2003 after a downturn in the mining economy in Sudbury.  Rather than pursue other employment she decided to focus on what made her happy and paint full-time. Today days spent in her studio on Long Lake in Sudbury or out scouting for painting ideas are the fulfillment of her life long dream.

Over the years Mullola has had the privilege of learning from many inspirational and talented artists in workshops locally and internationally. In 2009 she attended  a week long course in Venice, Florida with world-renowned painter John Seerey-Lester.  Mullola has developed a recognizable realistic style in her landscape paintings through careful study of her surroundings and plein air pencil sketches. Depth in her paintings is created by applying many layers of acrylic paint on a toned canvas, gradually building layers and detail as the painting progresses.

The ever-changing seasons of the beautiful Northern Ontario landscape has been the primary focus of Mullola’s paintings.  She has lived on

Long Lake in Sudbury all of her life and that has been the subject of many of her paintings.  Painting the seasons as they change keeps things fresh and accurate as she observes the nuances of nature that surround her. Mullola has also spent time exploring Manitoulin Island and has created paintings of Bridal Veil Falls in Kagawong and the Cup & Saucer Trail in Sheguiandah.

Another location which she loves to paint is the Killarney area where she spent many summers at a family cottage.

As an active member of the Sudbury artist community, Mullola has participated in many solo and group shows. Her most recent solo show “Close to Home” was held at Artists on Elgin for the month of April 2016. Mullola’s paintings have also been exhibited at the La Cloche Juried Art Show since 2000, at the Sudbury Studio Tour and The Sudbury Art Gallery Local Arts Program. As a member of the Northern Artists Gallery at Artists on Elgin in Sudbury her paintings are on display throughout the year. Mullola is also represented by Xanadu Gallery , Scottsdale , AZ as a studio artist.

Mullola’s artwork can be found in private collections in Canada, USA, Finland and England and her work has sold through the La Cloche Juried Art Show in Whitefish Falls,  The Northern Artists Gallery in Sudbury and through her gallery/studio in Sudbury, On. Her work is also available for purchase from her website

Every Mullola painting is a wonderful reflection of the rugged beauty of Northern Ontario. The peaceful solitude captured in her paintings inspire us to pause and reflect and experience nature in its quiet glory.


Myth and Mirrors Community Arts

Contact Name: Blaire Flynn

Artistic Vision

“Through the process of multi disciplinary artistic practices and public art interventions, Myths and Mirrors collaborates with community to weave art and story into the landscape and practices of our daily lives.  We actively seek unexpected connections, openings, opportunities and possibilities of collectively being in the world.  We push boundaries and create openings for public participation in social transformation.  Everyone is welcome to imagine and create community with us.”

Art in Action

Playfully and actively, we dream and create together, in order to infuse art into the everyday. In this way, we work toward social change and all people identifying as creative beings who take part in creatively evolving their communities.

There is more to the story……

Stories are transformative. They offer multiple perspectives and promote flexibility of thinking. They form the realities they describe. People and communities are created and recreated through stories. They, and the worlds they live in, are imagined into being, renewed again and again through the sharing of stories, both real and not yet real.

Colouring outside the lines…..

We work to blur the lines between artist and audience and push boundaries around places of artistic creation and experience. We use methods of artistic subversion to question who is artist, who is audience, where and when art is made and experienced. As community and environmental connections become increasingly electronic and virtual, Myths and Mirrors seeks ways to reconnect. We believe it is necessary to find opportunities for first hand connections. By sharing our stories in meaningful and tangible ways we humanize and learn to be a community.

While M&M continues to create collaborative visual art such as murals, we are also directing our energies toward performance, puppetry and circus arts.
