A local artist beloved by all


by Ann Brady, North Dundas Arts Council

Carrie A. Keller

‘Art in the Branches’ has a special treat for visitors to the Winchester branch of SDG Library this March. Carrie A. Keller has many titles, ‘though she modestly describes herself as ‘just an oil painter’. Truth to tell, this Winchester treasure is an internationally known Artist, teacher, illustrator, author, muralist and painter in all the major mediums.  If you don’t think you know her work, look no farther than the impressive Winchester District Memorial Hospital mural gracing Sweet Corner Park in downtown Winchester!

Carrie makes her home with her husband in Winchester, but her travels have taken her to California, Windsor, Banff and most of the provinces and the Northwest Territories. She has also lived in Germany, France and Florida which explains the richness and variety of her paintings being informed by a well-trained eye for beauty.

In her spare time – an understatement if there ever was one! – Carrie serves as Chair of the Art on the Waterfront Festival and is an active member of the North Grenville Art League. She likes to keep her hand in the mural world, partnering with Shane Signs, which reproduces and installs her murals in large format. This talented, energetic woman has also authored several children’s books and is currently working on an adult novel.

Visit Carrie A. Keller’s art on Facebook, at Paintingstoorder.com, and on Instagram at Carrie Keller 39. Carrie’s exhibit runs through the end of March at the Winchester branch, located at 547 St. Lawrence Street in Winchester.  ‘Art in the Branches’ is a free, gently curated program offered to all North Dundas visual Artists by the North Dundas Arts Council in partnership with SDG Library.
