You can visit Gary in his Hockley Valley studio. You’ll see finished pieces as well as works in progress, and you may even see faeries in his garden.
Since childhood Gary Wright has been fascinated by small things and fine detail. Inspired by Art Nouveau and Art Deco, his tiny, cast bronze faeries, elves and other small figures each have distinctive personalities and expressions that take them beyond pure whimsy to evoke a richly characterized alternative dimension. A legal aid lawyer in Orangeville by day, Gary lives with his wife, a costume designer, in an old farmhouse in Hockley Valley. A self-taught artist, he has shown his work at select miniature shows in the U.S. and Toronto’s One of a Kind Show. elvesandfaeries.ca
