ABOUT THE EXHIBITION This autumn, the Aird will celebrate finding a new location by offering a first CALL FOR ENTRY exhibition showcasing work by contemporary Canadian artists. The show will explore the theme of “cats” in their roles as domesticated animals and/or in their roles as mythic symbols of sexuality, divinity and magic.

The Cat Show invites entries of cat themed work of all kinds from artists at all stages of their careers.
Works in any medium will be considered, keeping in mind that dimensions can be no greater than 50.8 cm in any direction. This broad definition is intended to open the exhibition to entries reflecting a wide variety of contemporary techniques and practices.

I’m pleased to invite you to my upcoming exhibition opening, “The Natural Earth” on Sunday July 28, from 2-4 pm. The exhibition will be on display through to September 8, 2019 at The Gibson Centre, 63 Tupper Street West, Alliston, ON L9R 1E4
The Natural Earth – Opus I: Water is a celebration of water as the major tool in the shaping of life. Water contributes to the mechanical removal of soft and broken rocks and the scouring of ever deeper and wider lakes and rivers by glaciers. Plants and animal depend on clean, nourishing water for their livelihood. This exhibition also focuses on Water’s gift to the imagination through the play of light, shadow and reflection upon its surface – a gift that has inspired such artists as the painter Monet, and the pianist and composer, Claude Debussy.
The exhibition is open:
Tuesday to Saturday: 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
Sunday and Monday: closed
