And now for something completely different....

On a recent trips to Toronto galleries I discovered 
a brand new gallery called 
Matter Gallery!
I love a space with lots of natural light. Lara and Zack have turned a former garage into a bright, welcoming space.
It's off the beaten track on 344 Westmoreland Ave.
But it's not just the space that's so inviting but the owners themselves are so great at making you feel like they're happy to have you. Often it feels like an act of bravery to enter a gallery. Not here! It's a total joy to experience their passion for their artists.
Their mandate is to bring international artists to Toronto and they've chosen a fantastic group of extraordinary talents. 
Right now a group show is on until the end of the month of all the artists they represent: 
Malekeh Nayiny, Simon Back, Nest Collective, Aydin Büyuktas, Gözde Ilkin and Siwa Mjoboza. 
I was especially taken with the large abstracts by Simon Back but in the end it was a photo by Malekeh Nayiny that I couldn't get out of my mind. Her solo show is coming up in May. Can't wait!

Check them out on Facebook and Instagram but if you're in Toronto stop by and meet the wonderful people who run this fantastic place!

Art Heals - Aurora Cultural Centre

'Art Heals'
is a show curated by Allan O'Marra and Clare Bolton.
The artists created a piece for the show in which they dealt with a difficult subject matter hoping to work through it and hoping for the viewer to experience the healing properties of art.
 March 17 (6 -8pm)is the opening reception. Allan O'Marra will give an art talk and you will have an opportunity to speak with the artists about their work. I feel very honoured to be part of this project. 
My piece "Broken Circle" is to commemorate a friendship that ended because of mental illness.

Nice Surprise

Just got word from the Ontario Society of Artists that "Falling out of Darkness" the large piece in this picture was juried into the Annual Juried Show at the John B. Aired Gallery in Toronto. 

I'm so thrilled to be part of this event! "Falling out of Darkness" is part of my Fragmented Memories series. It is an attempt to capture my experience that working through mental darkness eventually leads to a deeper, brighter understanding.
