final day of exhibition
Barbara Cole: Meditations. Bau-Xi Photo is excited to be exhibiting new artwork by Barbara Cole. Barbara Cole is a self-taught photographic artist who has built an extraordinary career in image making since beginning her practice in the 1980s. Best known for her still images and her lenticular photographs of figures underwater, Cole harnesses the medium of water as a natural lens which refocuses and reinterprets a painterly aesthetic. In her first "above water" series in 30 years, the new images from Meditations evolved through in-studio experimentation fusing contemporary photographic processes with historical 19th-century "wet collodion" techniques ... more

Frances Patella: Hot Properties. Main Gallery.
Frances Patella's Hot Properties series investigates time, transience and transformation. Patella's photo-based mixed media work incorporates a temporal aspect to the representation of the landscape with photographic mosaics of the rare Oak Savannahs under controlled burn events. The urban nature of the Golden Horseshoe has squeezed these rare landscapes into specially designated areas, including High Park in Toronto. Prescribed burns encourage these endangered ecosystems, which are transformed into ephemeral places by fire and smoke. Produced with the support of the City of Toronto through the Toronto Arts Council. patella@sympatico.ca. www.francespatella.com. The artist will be present at the opening, Thur 20 Nov, 6:30-9:30pm, and on weekends: Nov 22-23 & 29-30, 12noon-6pm Saturdays, and 12noon-5pm Sundays.

Urban Gallery presents Otherworld – photography by Karen Silver. Artist statement: There is always more to see when we look from the magic that lies in the heart of nature and ourselves, beyond the mind's eye. Since I can remember, I've been a storyteller. A simple conversation has always sparked a barrage of visuals that fill my mind with fantastic colours and forms. I'm thrilled to finally be unveiling my collection of photography that promises to take you beyond the surface, revealing that which would otherwise escape the naked eye. I hope you will find my exhibition experiential and the images a reminder of the magic that is within us all. – Karen Silver, September 2014 ... more

The exhibition Stuck Inside seeks to expose the process of self-regulation, transitioning from internal thought processes to the external physical expression of how we present ourselves. The monumental size of the works creates a larger than life experience where, when faced with the imagery, the viewer is challenged to insert themselves into the work and contemplate the narrative. The works explore what one choses to present or show to others versus what one choses to repress or hide. While Campbell and Boxall's work considers the possibility that restriction of one's self-expression is a variable to how we believe others will perceive us, Pang explores a more explicit concern with the internal vs. external environment.
