I’m heading down tonight to the opening reception for the Elora Arts Council’s Insights exhibition at the Wellington County Museum & Archives in Fergus. Looking forward to the presentations and chatting with people. My piece in the show is “Morning Rays” framed to 29 x 35.5″, which is a photograph of the northern edge of Hockley Valley in Ontario showing layers of hills and trees and the sun’s rays lit up by the cold autumn morning’s mist. I still remember how the temperature was close to zero degrees Celsius and how my hands were stiffening up with the cold. The sun’s warm rays were most welcome. “Morning Rays” is part of my Tranquility series, which was originally shown at Abbozzo Gallery in 2015. Two editions of “Morning Rays” hang at the two Saks Fifth Avenue stores in Toronto.
I am very thrilled that the jurors of the Society of Canadian Artists have selected two of my pieces for the SCA 48th Open National Juried Exhibition, “Large Works Show”, which will take place at the Etobicoke Civic Centre Art Gallery from July 17 to August 11, 2016. The two pieces, “Shodo” and “Cheltenham Badlands, Study 1”, are part of my series, “Tranquility“, first seen at Abbozzo Gallery in 2015, and both part of the Saks Fifth Avenue collections at the Toronto Eaton Centre and Sherway Gardens stores. The opening reception will be on Sunday, July 17th from 2 to 4pm at the centre, located at 399 The West Mall Toronto ON M9C 2Y2.
This levity-filled piece, “Kung Fu Doodle” (an 8×8″ archival pigment print framed to 17×21″, edition 1 of 10), was delivered to the John B. Aird gallery in Toronto for the Ontario Society of Artists‘ “Suspension & Motion” 143rd Annual Open Juried Exhibition, which will run from April 5 to 29. Everyone is invited to come meet the artists and the artwork at the opening reception on Thursday, April 7th, from 6 – 8pm at the gallery at 900 Bay Street on the ground level.
The exhibition, “Caledon”, is now hanging at the Millcroft Inn & Spa in Caledon, Ontario, until October 18, 2015. It features 17 of Peter Dusek’s limited edition minimalist landscape photographs showing the tranquil beauty of the Caledon region, available for sale, framed in sizes ranging from 21 x 17″ to 42 x 42″. The works in the show can be seen by clicking here.
I have several pieces in New York City at the Affordable Art Fair, as one of Abbozzo Gallery’s artists. The AAF is on from September 9 to 13, 2015 at the Metropolitan Pavilion.
This is a photo of Abbozzo Gallery‘s booth at the fair. A nicely planned colour palette. My photograph, “Cheltenham Badlands, Study 1” can be seen in the centre of the booth.
I was truly honoured to be the recipient of the Award for Best Work by an Emerging Artist at the Ontario Society of Artists (OSA) Members’ Exhibition of Selected Works yesterday at the Papermill Gallery at Todmorden Mills, Toronto. The piece selected for the show is “Cheltenham Badlands, Study 1”, which, I am pleased to say, was sold at the opening reception. It was a pleasure to meet and learn about many of the other artists at the show and view their amazing artworks.
My deepest thanks to John Ashbourne, member of the OSA, for sponsoring me in to the show.
A newspaper article (InsideToronto.com and the Etobicoke Guardian) has been written here:
