Excited to be part of The Red Head Gallery’s upcoming Nuit Blanche exhibition BRIGHT LIGHTS AT NIGHT. I have a cool new print in the show, so I hope to see you there!
SEPTEMBER 28 - OCTOBER 2
NUIT BLANCHE: SATURDAY, OCTOBER 1, 7PM - 1AM OCTOBER 2
”The Red Head Gallery is pleased to present, Bright Lights at Night, our yearly salon show specially created for Nuit Blanche. Artists from across Canada and the United States responded to our call. This always unique, always surprising group show, is not to be missed.
The theme of Bright Lights at Night, has been openly interpreted by the artists. Bright Lights at Night is a physical, cultural, and psychological state that favours the melancholic as easily as the ecstatic.
The exhibition begins September 28th at noon, and culminates with Nuit Blanche’s end on the morning of October 2nd. As part of the 401 Richmond St. West complex, thousands of visitors come through the Red Head Gallery each Nuit Blanche. We hope to see you there!”
Happy to announce I’ll be participating in Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts’ re-opening exhibition called “re-vision”. I’ll be showing a new digital print that I’m excited about, so come check it out if you’re in Toronto.
Opening: Thursday September 29th, 6:30 - 9:30 PM

” After a summer-long renovation of the gallery’s new space on Queen St. and Abell, just south of the Drake Hotel, Propeller is re-opening this coming September-October, with an exhibition entitled “reVision.” reVision implies transformation, recalibration, redirection, and renovation.
For this exhibition, Propeller asked artists to show Toronto’s creative communities their process in these terms. With over 40 works of art from painting to installation and video work, this exhibition features a complex array of interpretations and understandings of this theme.
Featured artists include:
Audrey Smith, Beverly Allen, Alondra Ruiz-Hernandez, Lisa Johnson, Anne Armstong, Chris Shaw, Mr.Hyde, Irina Litinsky, Mirka Hattula, Joel Guzman, Maria Teresa Hernandez, Deniz Fikret, Maria Wall, Stanislav Plavcic, Anastessia Bettas, Gordon Stamper, Destiny Grimm, Jacques Descoteaux, Ross Winter, Dominique Prevost, Kristy Blackwell, Dan Nuttall, Gwen Tooth, Joseph Muscat, Michelle Letarte, Frances Patella, Sandi Hartling, Emanuel Pavao, Andres Vosu, Ellen Snowball, Nicole Kagan, Philip Hare, Art Lucs, David Griffin, DNA Dodds, Keijo Tapanainen, Carlina Chen, Robin Kingsburgh, Pria Muzumdar, Anne Schotman, and Iryna Hrymalyuk”
Tea Party (detail), 2016
I’m excited to announce that I’ll be participating in Propeller’s Nuit Rose exhibition ”Through the Looking Glass: In Search for Identity”. This is the first time I’ll be exhibiting my new digital work, so I’m looking forward to this.
Opening reception : June 25th 7 - 11 PM
“Propeller is proud to participate in this year’s Nuit Rose festival in Toronto! We will be hosting a group exhibition consisting of innovative, witty and vibrant works that will hurl you into another world. Inspired by the adventures of Alice in Wonderland and a collective journey in search for identity. On June 25th, we invite everyone to tumble down the rabbit hole – the appropriately decorated Propeller gallery door - to discover challenging and exciting works of art and have a cup of tea served in mismatched cups under the clocks stopped at tea-time. *NUIT ROSE is a free annual festival of queer-focused art and performance. It showcases provocative, cutting edge work by diverse local and international artists, and engages LGBTQ communities, art lovers, residents and visitors to Toronto in unique experiences with art across the city. Nuit Rose returns for its third year on SATURDAY, JUNE 25, 2016.”
June 22 - July 3
Happy to announce that one of my paintings will be in the 6th Annual Black & White Ball at Propeller Centre for the Visual Arts. It’ll be on display from February 3rd-14th.
“Propeller’s sixth annual juried exhibition comprised entirely of artworks in black and white. The exhibit is inspired by Truman Capote’s 1966 “Black and White Ball”, held at the Grand Ballroom of New York City’s Plaza Hotel. It was considered to be “the most posh event, not just of the year, but also of the decade, and maybe even the century.”
Iconic, bitchy, mysterious, elegant… just some of the many adjectives used to describe the event, and the guests. Let these inspire and engage you…”
Opening reception is Thursday February 4th, 6:30-9:30 pm.
Come see my work at the 30 Under 30 Exhibition at The John B. Aird Gallery! Curated by Gary Michael Dault, the exhibition is on until July 24th. I’m really happy to be part of this show. There’s lots of great work so I invite you to check it out.
