SPECIAL PROMOTION: Timeless Canadian Art

Pond Skaters George Rae Menendez w/c 14x20

It’s time to remind you again of the special promotion Redkettle is running on five selected pieces of timeless Canadian art. The above lovely watercolour by George Ray Menendez is a case in point.

We want to present a range of starting points, a selection including both First Nations and other Canadian artists, in a scale from entry level for beginning collectors up to and including discerning and experienced collectors who have been on the scene for a number of years.

This Menendez was probably painted in the late 1950’s and I can see it equally at home in a mid-century modern home or in a lakeside cabin and everywhere in between. It would be happy in my eclectic early 1800’s home too – so you can put this one anywhere, and it will shine! It epitomises the Canadian outdoor experience. Yours shipped rolled unframed in a tube for $275 plus shipping. Get in touch – make an offer – you will not regret purchasing this one! (mich@redkettle.com for further info)


Caribou - acrylic on canvas - Corinna Ray - 21x24

 Above  and below are two lovely companion pieces painted recently by Corinna Ray of the Sandy Lake First Nations community  in Northwestern Ontario – because there is no framing facility in the community, and because of the need for everything to fly in and out, these canvases came to me in rolled, unframed condition and I am leaving it up to you to frame them according to your preference.

Bear Cub - acrylic onh canvas - 21x24 - Corrina Ray

I can see them lo0king great in a wrapped canvas around stretchers treatment. They will speak for themselves in their simplicity, they really don’t need a formal frame. You can purchase one painting for $250 plus shipping or go for both at the price of $475 for the two plus shipping. Again, you can’t go wrong with these paintings!

Bella Coola Raven ceremonial clacker mask - James Leslie

One of my more outstanding pieces is this strong Haida ceremonial mask – created by James Leslie, it is a mixed media piece, very large and imposing, using the traditional blue, black, red and ochre colours with wooden beads holding together fringes made of cedar bark. This piece will look striking in any collection and will help to round out any grouping of First Nations Canadian art. This striking piece is priced at $2495 plus shipping and reasonable offers will be considered – contact mich@redkettle.com for details and to discuss purchase.

A New Tomorrow - Isaac Bignell - 54x60 - acrylic on canvas

Above is a thrilling and inspiring large piece by Isaac Bignell. This piece will be the focal point of any collection and will make a strong statement in any home, office or institutional setting. It is offered either framed or unframed to save shipping, but taking it out of it’s frame is not a move I would suggest.

It is priced at $4995 plus shipping either framed or unframed – buyer should ask me for details of courier packing and shipping  to ensure it arrives safely and undamaged. ( mich@redkettle.com )
Contact me with your offers.
MORE ABOUT THIS SPECIAL PROMOTION: my primary goal in offering these works of art under special terms is to make it easier for the newer collector with perhaps limited means to  acquire classic Canadian art for their homes and offices. We encourage entry at both the very modest level and at the more advanced. Remember, payments can be spread over several months and we are open to reasonable offers. Contact mich@redkettle.com for more details or to make an offer to purchase.
UNTIL NEXT TIME! Mich and Janet – west and east!
