An exciting newspaper feature about Peter’s art exhibition, “Tranquility”, at the Headwaters Arts Gallery at the Alton Mill in Alton, Caledon:
Peter’s award-winning, Zen-inspired art exhibition, “Tranquility”, is now installed and open at the Headwaters Arts Gallery at the Alton Mill Arts Centre in Alton, Caledon, Ontario. Everyone is invited to attend the opening reception, which will take place on Saturday, October 15, from 1 to 4pm. The works were first exhibited at Abbozzo Gallery, where Peter is represented, in Toronto in 2015, and sold over two and a quarter times over at the initial showing with Saks Fifth Avenue from New York City purchasing two complete sets to represent Canadian Art at the two stores they opened in Toronto this year. Works from the exhibition have received international awards including “Best Work By An Emerging Artist” by the Ontario Society of Artists and “Best of 2015″ by the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP). All 19 pieces are available for purchase in limited editions in three sizes: framed to 21 x 17″, 29 x 29″, and 42 x 42”.
The photographs in the exhibition can be seen in detail in their gallery on this website.
“In today’s world, the eyes and the soul are assaulted by a myriad of things, causing us to lose our focus, become scattered, and even blinded to the simple beauty hidden around us. Peter Dusek is an international award-winning Canadian photographer whose toned black and white photographs give us a glimpse of this hidden beauty, a beauty hidden like a special shell amongst the pebbles on a beach. Inspired by the simplicity of Zen, Peter places a strong emphasis on balance and negative space and his artistic design goal is “as little as possible, as much as necessary”, giving an almost abstract quality to his intimate landscapes. His style embodies the Japanese design aesthetic of shibumi, which means “a quiet elegance”. In this simplicity can be found the tranquility and perhaps even the happiness that often eludes us.”
Fourteen of Peter’s works from the central Ontario region of Canada are now on display at The Millcroft Inn & Spa in the town of Alton in Caledon, Ontario until October 30, 2016. The pieces add a touch of luxurious elegance to the Inn and are for sale, sized from 21 x 17″ to 39 x 39″.
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’m pleased to announce that the jurors have accepted my work to be shown in the Headwaters Arts Festival Show & Sale for 2014! The show is at the SGI Centre, a few minutes south of Orangeville, Ontario and has its Opening Gala Event on Friday, September 19th. The show will be open on the two weekends after that: September 20 and 21 and September 27 and 28.
