    This retrospective exhibition serves as a community memorial to Diane Purdie who passed away July 19, 2018. She was an artist, beloved teacher, and influencer in the arts and culture world. A community of friends, family and artists has come together to mount this exhibition as a posthumous tribute to honour the art and life of this brilliant Newmarket artist who was passionately devoted to her students, her art and her community. D. Purdie head shot 2.jpg Diane was born into a mining family on both sides and her experiences led her to appreciate the beauty, as well as the strength, in industrial form. In addition, this exhibit displays other aspects of the artist's life, from whimsical drawings as a teenage girl, to the experimental processes and expressions of a mature artist. Explore her works as we pay tribute!
