Introducing Gordon Reidt (New Artist 2016)

Gordon began stone sculpture in 2005 after many years enjoying photography as his primary means of artistic expression. Now, working with all types of stone including soapstone, alabaster, serpentine, limestone, marble, jade and granite, Gordon's subject matter reflects a love of nature that began in childhood. Gordon's stone work portrays stylized birds, mammals, turtles and fish but recently, he has also experimented with more abstract subject matter.

Gordon participates in local shows and studio tours annually including the Durham West Arts Centre Studio Tour, the Lake Scugog Studio Tour, the Purple Turtle Arts Festival and the Uxbridge Studio Tour. In the past Gordon was also part of the Victoria County Studio Tour. Gordon also chooses to support local charities and fundraisers with donations of his art.
