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

Hope you can make it!

On what would have been Toller’s 70th birthday, we are pleased to launch a new partnership with the CANADIAN OLYMPIC FOUNDATION and the Toller Cranston Memorial Fund. Artworld Fine Art Gallery in conjunction with Phillippa Cranston Baran have committed to an annual donation to the C.O.F. in Toller’s name, to help a new generation of skaters pursue their passion.
Toller was fearless in expression, courageous in creativity, and innovative in interpretation.
He had a determination, dedication and a desire to go where no skater had gone before.
He lived life on his terms. He found his way of being in the world and staying true to himself.

We have received an intriguing message from OSA member Janice Mason Steeves:
If you are over 60 and have come to art later in life, I’d love to hear your story of that journey.
I’m an OSA member and I’m writing a book with the working title: IT’S ABOUT TIME: On Becoming an Artist Later in Life. I think it would be encouraging and inspiring to read about the journeys to art that others have taken.
Please email me at email@example.com if you are interested in responding to my interview questions. I very much appreciate your willingness to share your journey.
