Quick Hits: Rockwood

This is a diptych by Toronto-based artist Brian Kelley, whose work captures the natural beauty of one of Ontario’s hidden secrets. The Rockwood Conservation Area, with its limestone cliffs, caves and glacial potholes, is a heavenly place. (Along with its natural wonders, there’s an abandoned woollen mill that looks like a castle where, as BlogTO points out, you can live your Game of Thrones fantasies.)

The diptych, called Rockwood, is a 37” x 27.5”, screenprint that Open Studio Toronto featured on Instagram, here.


Brian Kelley is a Toronto-based artist who has been exhibiting in Canada and abroad since 1968. Venues include the Japan Foundation in Toronto, and Atelier Circulaire in Montreal. His work is housed in numerous private, corporate and public collections in North America and abroad including Global Affairs, the National Gallery of Canada, IBM Canada, the Art Gallery of Hamilton and the National Museum in Warsaw, Poland. He has also taught workshops at Open Studio, the PEI Printmakers Association and the Art Gallery of Ontario. He is a longtime artist member of Open Studio.

  1. Oh, wow. That’s a neat diptych there. It’s great how that art form is still going on. Funny enough, I wrote a cell phone novel called Diptych Souls and both of the main characters are involved in art in different forms.
