Christopher Gorey – Cape Breton Centre for Craft

Christopher Gorey

Christopher Gorey graduated with an Art Education degree from Massachusetts College of Art. For many summers, he had painted and vacationed in Atlantic Canada and eventually gave up his teaching career to take up painting full time in Cape Breton. Interest in his work took off with sales and exhibitions occurring throughout North America. Chris paints in oil as well as watercolour; his works reflect a feeling of light and texture and include landscapes and people of Cape Breton and other areas of Eastern Canada.
