Yorkminster Park Gallery is located in Yorkminster Park Baptist Church, 1585 Yonge St (just north of St Clair). Its a lovely space just within the Yorkminster Park Centre doors, and I think my work shows very well there. Gallery hours are Monday to Friday, 10am to 2 pm, and Saturday 12 to 4pm. On Sunday April 13 I will be giving an artist talk 9:30 to 10:30 am. My work is on display until April 30.

Ontario Society of Artists Open Juried Show: Reception April 3

Bookmark and Share

I am thrilled to have my painting “Lucky” accepted into the OSA’s 141st Open Juried Show at the John B Aird Gallery, Toronto,  April 2–25. The Opening Reception is from 6–8 pm Thursday April 3.

The theme of this year’s show is “Game”. “Lucky”,  one of only 38 works accepted out of 235 entries, addresses the theme on a couple levels: I tried to suggest the feel of an old style shooting gallery — faded and a bit tawdry; the animals themselves are what a hunter would perceive as “game” — however, the illustrations are from my old children’s books, and in mind also is the strange concept that, as children, we read books about animals who talk and think and manage families, yet some people grow into adults who shoot for sport these same creatures. The target in the painting is obviously in reference to the shooting gallery concept, and less-obviously, a nod to the great abstract expressionist and encaustic painter Jasper Johns. Lucky would be the person who won at the shooting gallery, and lucky indeed the animals who escape the hunter’s gun.
