By Jennifer MacLeod and Shannon Heth
What better place to exhibit the works of an artist devoted to wildlife than in beautiful Banff National Park? Ron Kingswood, who shows at Canada House Gallery, has been displaying his work across Canada and the United States since 1993. Kingswood received his formal art training at the H.B. Beal Secondary School in London, Ontario. He also studied under Don Echelberry and Bert Kloezeman. Kingswood has an impressionistic style, using bright colour and larger-than-life canvases to achieve a distinctive interpretation of the beauty he finds in the natural world.
Kingswood is featured in collections from the National Museum of Wildlife Art in Jackson, Wyoming, as well as in the World Wildlife Fund Collection in Switzerland. His work can also be found at the London Museum in Ontario.
