Welcome to the Spring Edition of the AAW Art Newsletter. Announcing the award of an Artist Residency next month and a date for the Solo Exhibition. Read on for announcements, new paintings and exhibition details...


I'm excited to share the news that I’ve been awarded an invitation to The Pouch Cove Artist Residency in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Thanks to Nova Scotian artist Katherine Burns and the James Baird Gallery for including me in this once-in-a lifetime opportunity to paint the East Coast with a curated group of talented water painters.

Work from our month-long residency in May will culminate in a group exhibition, “Water” at the James Baird Gallery, on May 28th, 2022, located on the northern tip of the Avalon Peninsula on the eastern edge of Canada.


Petley Jones Gallery presents: "Current Sea" by Amelia Alcock-White
A new collection of paintings that highlight the currency of water’s intrinsic value. Presenting the concept of water as more than a mere material asset, rendering perspective on decisions that trade pristine nature for economic gain.  A series of work that is simultaneously abstract and hyperreal, images of the sea and freshwater lakes, intricate compositions that vibrate with depth and motion. Dramatic colours, stylized ellipses, reflected patterns on glittering surfaces recreate the physics of water’s elegant flow.  These images move beyond water’s material worth, a transcendence that depicts this vital ecological entity as a substance of sheer beauty. Be transported to the water’s edge and experience the sea’s current.

October 7 - 28, 2022

Renowned artist and teacher Bo Bartlett recently commented, “Amelia Alcock-White paints water in a chromatic, reflective and emotional swirl. It’s not as much photorealistic as it is a metaphor for the totality of what is.” 3/9/2022


A big thank you to everyone who came out to the opening reception for "The Triumph of Colour"!

This painting was influenced by vivid memories of Island summers. The all-encompassing warmth, comfort, and sensations of the gulf coast.

I will be partnering with this conservation initiative this year.  Together we acknowledge the interconnected sacredness of water. I will be painting a live auction fundraising piece during the Fall exhibition.
