Where the Heart Is features a selection of paintings drawn from the past twenty years of Ann Mitchell’s career. Rooted in the native tradition, each painting captures real people in real situations and evokes a love of place often overlooked in modern life. Award-winning artist Anne Mitchell’s paintings are featured in collections across Canada and throughout the eastern United States. Her work was selected for display at le Musée de la civilisation in Quebec City and she has been invited to participate in three International Art Naif contests.
Over many years, as I travelled the beautiful Eastern Townships of Quebec, I was saddened by the sight of so many picturesque historic churches which were closed or about to close. I wondered whether memory of the people who built them and the parishioners who faithfully cared for them over many generations would be lost to posterity. I felt strongly that there was a need to document the histories of these churches and congregations so their story might be preserved for future generations to appreciate. Some of the congregations and their church buildings no longer exist, but many have left behind a wealth of history, and this, I hope will prove interesting to the reader. Phyllis Hamilton
