Artist Bio:

Bruce Flowers was born in Woodstock, Ontario. He was a member of the Sculptor’s Society of Canada and taught Visual Arts for thirty years. He graduated with an honours BA in Fine Arts from the University of Guelph in 1970. In 1982-84 he did his Master of Fine Arts (Sculpture) degree in New York at the Pratt Institute.  Bruce is fondly remembered as the Founder of the London Pride Art Show, in 1992 and was presented the Ken Sadler Award, retiring as its curator in 2017 after many decades of involvement. He retired from Saunders Secondary in London in 2002 where he had been active as an openly gay teacher from the early 1990s. He considered his effort as a gay role model his most important contribution to education.

Artist Statement:

Bruce’s passions were sculpture and heritage architecture, delighting in the restoration of his beautiful historic home. Bruce said “I’ve been inspired by the gentleness of 6th century B.C. Etruscan tomb figures and the calmness of the Classical Greeks. Della Robia’s wall plaques have been an inspiration in their tenderness.  But it is to the great 19th century sculptor, Auguste Rodin, that I owe my deepest debt, both in regard to his theories and his themes.”
