A new exhibition, “A Roundabout Way”, a two artist show with my photography and talented ceramic artist Ann Renderaad has opened at the Gibson Centre in Alliston, Ontario. The gallery at the centre is operated by the South Simcoe Arts Council and is a beautiful, open, historic building. The show runs from August 11, 2015 to September 22, 2015, with an opening reception on August 25 from 11:30 to 2pm and a “Meet the Artists” event on September 11, from 6 to 9pm. The Gibson Centre is located at 63 Tupper Street West, Alliston, Ontario.
I am very pleased to announce that I am now being represented by Abbozzo Gallery, an excellent art gallery, in downtown Toronto, Ontario. Their blog post about the announcement is here. And my information page on their website is here. The gallery was very pleased with the success of my first solo exhibition, Tranquility, featuring 19 toned black and white photographs of Canadian landscapes in central Ontario. I am looking forward to work together in the future.
I am delighted to say that I have been accepted into the Ontario Society of Artists Members’ Exhibition of Selected Works as a sponsored emerging artist. The jurors selected “Cheltenham Badlands, Study 1” for my piece to be displayed in the show. The exhibition will run from August 19 to September 13, 2015 at the Papermill Gallery in Todmorden Hills in Toronto at 67 Pottery Rd. The opening reception will be held on Sunday August 23rd from 1 to 4pm.
Here is a beautiful video of my pictures documenting Toronto Ribfest 2014, where I am able to play my part as official photographer, as member of the Rotary Club of Etobicoke that organizes the event. I feel very proud to be able to contribute to such huge event, put on by so many hard-working people, and hope that many good memories come to mind when they watch. Thanks to Maximum Media for doing such a good job in creating the video.
I am honoured to have two works accepted into the Elora Arts Council’s Insights Juried Exhibition of Fine Arts for a second year. Once again, the jurors at this show have very impressive resumes with many years in the art world. The show is at the Wellington County Museum & Archives, between Elora and Fergus, Ontario, and runs from June 17 to September 6, 2015. The opening reception is on June 17 from 7 to 9pm. The following two works will be in the show:
Zen Path, Orangeville, Ontario, 2014. 20×20″ framed to 29×29″:
Cheltenham Badlands, Study 1, Caledon, Ontario, 2014. 20×20″ framed to 29×29″:
The Rotary Club of Etobicoke, that I am a member of, has amazingly, generously, kindly (too many words to list here) organized a wine and cheese reception for my show, Tranquility, as an official club event. It was a wonderful evening, being able to share the fine artist side of me with many club members for the first time. I thank everyone for coming!
The Abbozzo Gallery has generously extended the photography exhibition, Tranquility, for two more weeks until June 12, 2015. This is a great chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of Toronto life and enter the room and spend some time basking in the peaceful and quiet atmosphere.
I’m pleased to announce that I will have a solo photography exhibition, “Tranquility”, which will run from May 5 to May 29, 2015 at the Abbozzo Gallery, 401 Richmond St. West, Suite 128, Toronto, Ontario, located at the corner of Richmond and Spadina. Almost 20 limited edition toned black and white photographs printed on Hahnemühle and Canson Infinity fine art papers with archival pigment inks will be on display and available for purchase, sized from an intimate 16×20″ to a grand 40×40″.
For more details, a show description, and the pieces that will be on display please see the Tranquility web page.
I have been accepted into the Beaux-Arts Brampton Juried Art Show next month. It will run from March 31 to April 18, 2015, with an opening reception and awards ceremony on April 2, from 7 to 9pm. This is my first time at this show, so I am looking forward to seeing the gallery and meeting the artists there.
