  • Description
John Newby (1945 - 2013) grew up in Burlington, Ontario and in the 1960's attended the Ontario College of Art in Toronto, starting a career as a police officer for 10 years and then a firefighter for another 10. Painting was always in his life until the artist in him took over in the 1990's.

Newby was a magnet for art lovers in Niagara-on-the-Lake for 9 1/2 years, before moving his gallery to Queen St. in Niagara Falls in 2008 to be part of revitalization efforts downtown.

He is a listed Canadian artist represented by:

National Gallery of Canada - Library and Archives / Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography
Art Gallery of Ontario - Edward P. Taylor Research Library and Archives

His style often compared to the late Norman Rockwell, Newby drew inspiration from observations of children playing minor sports, as well as youth in day-care centres and everyday living.

Whether it was a young girl in a flower dress playing the piano, or two boys out on the hockey rink, you couldn’t help but think you knew the people in the picture.

“He was extremely in touch with just everyday situations, everyday life with your children." He really captured the emotions. Often, people say, ‘Oh my God, does that really touch my heart, or they can relate to it in some way with their own situations."
- Annmarie Newby
