Brian D. Burke
1952-2017
Brian Burke was born on August 5th 1952 in Charlottetown, son
of the late Charles and Gladys (Mullins) Burke, youngest brother of
the late Charles (Sonny), Jack (Pooch), and Robert (Bob). There are
wonderful memories from growing up in the house 111 Pownal Street,
playing in the neighborhood and Victoria Park, swimming on the wharf
and ice skating on Government Pond. Friendships were always of great
importance to him. He drew and painted as long as he can remember and
played as drummer in bands. He loved music and jazz. He attended the
design program at Holland College and one semester at Nova Scotia
College of Art and Design in Halifax. A ferocious eclectic reader,
Brian Burke developed his own unique approach to mostly figurative
painting – He received support from the Canada Council for the Arts
and spent a year painting in New York, where he met his wife Judith
Scherer, originally from Switzerland. They lived in Dalvay in the
National Park, above the Hillsborough River in Cherry Hill and on the
Harbour Cove in Murray Harbour. In the last 6 years he divided his
studio between Murray Harbour and Lucerne Switzerland. Over the years
his paintings were exhibited in private and public galleries in
Canada, the US and Europe. He is a member of the Royal Canadian
Academy of the Arts. His work is in public, corporate and private
collections, including the permanent collection of Confederation
Centre Art Gallery, TD Trust, the Bank of Nova Scotia, the Canada
Council Art Bank. Brian Burke died in Murray Harbour, December 19th
2017.
