We are also honoured to reveal the continuing collaboration with world-renowned, Toronto-based artist, Charles Pachter. One of Canada’s leading contemporary artists, Toronto-born and based Charles Pachter is a painter, printmaker, sculptor, designer, historian, and lecturer. His work can be found in the high ranking locales including, the Portrait Gallery of Canada, the Parliament Buildings and the Prime Minister’s residence. His images of the Queen of England, Canadian Moose, and the Maple Leaf flag have become icons of Canadian contemporary art.

We began our relationship with the talented Mr. Pachter last year, when he generously offered his “Queen Bee Honey” painting to take the role of visual centerpiece during multiple events of the Symposium. Continuing to demonstrate his support for Terroir Symposium, Mr. Pachter also contributed the image currently featured on our homepage at

For this year’s Terroir Symposium, Mr. Pachter drew inspiration from a number of his previous works to create a fresh illustration that represents a touch Canadian culture in it’s most iconic form. Featuring a mosaic of images such as the Canadian Flag swaying in the wind; the rustic French-Canadian aesthetic of the Grey Barn from the Charlevoix and the majestic Moose (he calls, “the monarch of the north”) that he is so well known for.
