Tim Packer

On Friday July 24th Whitevale member Tim Packer will be setting up his easel at the clubhouse in the early morning hours to help raise funds for our Cancer Society Drive. Tim will start and finish a 24” by 36” painting in the one day.  The painting will be auctioned off at the club later this season with all of the proceeds going to the Canadian Cancer Society. Tim will be creating one of his trademark “Sun through the trees” paintings depicting the view looking up from the path on the way to the 12th green. The regular retail price for a painting of Tim’s of this size is $3,295.00.

Tim is an internationally recognized painter whose work can be found in private and corporate collections around the world. He is the former president of the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour and a former senior signature member of the Canadian Institute of Portrait Artists.

Two giclee reproductions of Tim’s work are currently in the club house… one in the east Garden Entrance hall and one in the Lounge.

Tim participates in a similar fundraising initiative with the Toronto Police Service and the United Way each year by completing a painting in one day in the lobby of Toronto Police Headquarters. You can see a fast motion video of the 2013 painting being completed on youtube at the following link.


Drop by, say hello and watch the painting take shape throughout the day.
