Kenneth Gordon - In the Steps of the Seven
Morning Pile Up
Kenneth Gordon: 1929-1998
It is said that Kenneth Gordon followed the Group of Seven, in their style, but yet Gordon's style was unique.
Kenneth Gordon attended high school in Manhattan, New York, USA, and art school in Michigan. He made his home for most of his life in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Ken was a high school teacher in Winnipeg for much of his working life, and after retirement he moved to a small town in Manitoba where he painted throughout his retirement.
During his years in Winnipeg, he and his wife made many trips together into the wilderness to draw inspiration for his beautiful works. His pictures hang on such prestigious walls as that of Sony Canada, Boeing, and the Park Plaza Hotel, in Toronto. Kenneth was represented by many premier Galleries during his life and his works have spread into private collections in many countries.
Please check the Galleries West website for a biography of Kenneth's life:
