Autumn 2016

The Bancroft Studio Tour is over but I’m busy in the studio as always. Black Spruce Art Works gallery’s autumn hours are Friday thru Monday, 10 to 5. I am also open by appointment or by chance. Usually if I’m here working (most of the time!) my gallery and studio are open to visitors.

“Summer-scapes” at Arta Gallery, Toronto

I am thrilled to have been invited to exhibit at Arta Gallery, in the Distillery District of Toronto, for their landscape show “Summer-Scapes”. I love this quote from Arta which perfectly sets the context for the show: “This group exhibition celebrates the beauty and sublimity of the Canadian landscape, as it is conveyed through the languages of Realism and Abstraction.”
Summer-Scapes runs August 2 to 16
