Art Launch: Lynda Cunningham

Come and meet our latest featured artist, Lynda Cunningham Painter!

From Lynda’s bio:
Country life is the inspiration for Lynda’s work, combining her love of rural living with her passion for art. The subjects of Lynda’s oil paintings reflect the rapidly disappearing scenes of rural Ontario and its domestic farm animals. Through her art she recaptures days past, when horses were an integral part of farm life.

“I have always been fascinated with horses, especially those in harness. When I first saw a team plowing, I was amazed at the sheer size and strength of these incredible creatures. I admire the amount of skill and patience needed by both the teamsters and their teams I truly believe working the land with horses is an art. The admiration I have for those who chose to follow this way of life is reflected in my paintings”

Natural settings are the inspiration for works. Everyday life on the farm finds it way to her canvas, fieldstone walls of her barn and shadows from harness dancing across a horses gleaming coat. Early mornings in the barn, feeding time and the delight of witnessing new life are a constant theme.

In 2008 Lynda received the honor of being elected to the Ontario Society of Artists.

Lynda is a self taught artist, and enjoys working with a variety of media. A kiln and a pottery wheel are recent additions to her studio which is located on her farm. Her children share her love for art. Lynda and her family raise sheep and Clydesdale horses.

All are welcome!

Mackenzie Leigh Meyer live at The Second Wedge

Music Sunday!
As a 2019 CMA Ontario nominee for “Roots Artist of the Year” and recent Artist of the Month, up and comer Mackenzie Leigh Meyer is already getting industry nods for her unique style and enchanting vocals.
Since the May 2018 release of her debut EP “Dive Bar Diva”, the Hamilton, ON native has caught the attention of quite a few country music fans. With her song “Your Company” featured on ET Canada and more than 182,000 views on her YouTube, it’s no shocker that renowned producer Ken Scott (David Bowie, Supertramp) exclaimed “ Watch out Carrie Underwood” after working with Meyer on EP favourite “Should Have Known”.
But if you’ve ever seen this Steeltown artist live, you’d know her writing isn’t the only thing worth bragging about. Her vibrant stage presence and dynamic live show has been wowing audiences on some of country music’s favourite stages like Boots and Hearts, Havelock Jamboree, Lucknow’s Music in the Fields and many more. As an honours Humber Music Degree graduate and busy professional musician/entertainer in the off-season, to say that Mackenzie has continually been honing her craft while living up to her “Dive Bar Diva” identifier, is an understatement.
Partnering up with Jeff Dalziel (2019/2018 CCMA producer of the year) on her latest single “Before You” you want to look out for what Mackenzie has in store.
All shows will be outdoors in our partly sheltered beer garden, rain or shine. In the case of stormy weather, we’ll bring shows indoors (proof of vaccination required). Seating is first come, first served. Masks are mandatory when not seated. Shows are free for paying customers, but artist tips are very welcome!
