Her painting career began in Montreal in the 1950s, when she associated with Quebec's prominent abstract artist groups Les Automatistes and Les Plasticiens.

Seeking to express the full energy of life and harness in her powerful gestures an intense spiritual force, Letendre worked with various materials including oils, pastels, acrylics, using her hands, palette knife, brushes and uniquely the airbrush, which she began using in 1971.
This is the first major museum retrospective of Letendre's work to originate outside Quebec.

Currently on view at FRANK social space, through AGO Art Rental + Sales and courtesy of Art Works Consulting: Sarah Letovsky – a series of paintings, a continuation from her first solo exhibition, GIRLS, GIRLS, GIRLS. Sarah Letovsky focuses on the expressive nature of paint to explore ideas of subjectivity, tension, and hidden thought and feeling. Letovsky uses the painting process to create a force of opposites; her brushstrokes are at once gestural and deliberate, spontaneous and confined, bringing the figure forward with an empathetic gaze and pushing it back into abstraction with explosive colour, flat space, and restrained texture ... more

Charles Goldman: 4X4X4X4.
Based in Brooklyn NY, artist Charles Goldman makes work that extends sculpture into painting, installation, performance, drawing, sound, photography and architecture.
His exhibition at Birch Contemporary, 4X4X4X4, consists of 4 works from 4 concurrent and long-term series.
RE>CRETE> (Seated) is an edition of 4 RE>CRETE> modules, seated atop 4 identical IKEA tables. The RE>CRETE> modules have no inside or outside, no top or bottom. They are both figure and ground, both subjective and objective. Distance Painting (Folded) is a transparent, double-sided 200-foot-long painting, split in half, creating a layering of 4 – 50-foot-long sections. The piece is created on 3/4in. Plexiglass and is free-standing, held aloft by a piece of rough lumber. Moments are a series of intimately sized "fast paintings." Created with the refuse of whatever else is being created in the studio, without much regard for intent or content, they are portraits of fleeting moments. The DWGS. are just that, and, again, there are only 4 presented here (of, potentially, thousands). The interconnectedness of these 4 bodies of work presents a focused picture of the various activities taking place within Goldman's studio over the past couple of years. This is Charles Goldman's 4th exhibition with the gallery
(RE>CRETE> is a custom-designed, 95% recycled building material made from shredded newspaper and junk mail, ground-up packing Styrofoam, home electronics wire, credit cards and CDs, salvaged house paint, old jeans, Portland cement and fly ash).

Donald Sultan: Dominoes.
We are delighted to announce an exhibition comprising the full suite of Donald Sultan's Dominoes aquatint etchings from 1990. this 28-piece set is typical of Sultan's playful use of representational, everyday objects as abstract forms – in this case the simple graphic quality of a set of dominoes.
For this exhibition we present an interactive installation. Following the rules of a traditional dominoes game, the highest double domino (6/6) will initially be hung on one wall of the space. The remaining 27 works will be available for audience members to select and place next to the starting domino, one per day, during gallery hours. The installation will build over time, resulting in a game of dominoes that will unfold over the course of the exhibition.

Jun 22-Aug 20, 2017 | Summer opening reception Thur 22 Jun, 6-9pm:
Mary Anne Barkhouse: Le Rêve aux Loups.
Guest curator: Jennifer Rudder.
In her first solo exhibition in Toronto, Mary Anne Barkhouse invokes the animal inhabitants of the land in artworks that reveal the transitory nature of empire, highlighting both the triumphs and betrayals that delineate history north of the 49th parallel. Comprising a series of new and recent sculptures and photocollages, Le Rêve aux Loups reflects on our skewed experience of nature as a resource for human needs, rather than an ecosystem with its own intrinsic value.
Deeply engaged with environmental and Indigenous issues, Barkhouse's artistic practice foregrounds a visual iconography where animals play a central role. She situates her work between the two worlds of the human and the natural, employing the beaver, owl, wolf and coyote as symbols of the ability to adapt and persist, regenerate and repair throughout endless incursions into their environs.
Descended from a family of traditional Northwest Coast Kwakiutl carvers, Barkhouse has always worked within a contemporary sculpture / installation style. Her elegant yet witty works frequently employ popular culture references, while her accomplished handling of traditional sculptural materials such as wood, bronze, porcelain and glass, bring both a refined sensibility and serious tone to her often playful installations. These sophisticated artworks offer a quiet beauty while revealing the difficult struggle over territory that continues amongst humans, animals and the environment ... more

Featuring two-months-long ceramic residency project by Natalia Laluq.
The sixth year of the Gallery's journey brings openly youth and experience in unpredictable stage.

Entire body of work, Digital Spheres by Clara Bacou, is integrated into our 6th Anniversary show. RKG brings the dialogue to Clara Bacou.
We live in the digital information age. Increasingly, we spend more time online or organising our lives and information about who we are online. We create digital avatars of ourselves as a result of being in the internet age, "The performance of the self continues on the net... It's a media-specific mask of the self, created within Facebook's prescribed parameters and under certain contractual terms of use. It's basically an avatar 2.0" (Mark Butler). The word "avatar" is the Hindi pronunciation of the Sanskrit term "avatara" which means "to descend from" and therefore "incarnation". In this sense, avatars can be described as incarnations of ourselves online. We live in digital spheres as digital representations of ourselves that we have created. This show is an exploration of the boundary between the physical and digital plane, which is growing remarkably thin in our minds. All the work produced for this exhibition is digital and inspired by the world of online avatars. The digital work in this exhibition is brought to tangible perception through the use of light projection. It is a cross-over of digital 3D characters, into the real and phsyical world.
Fresh out of her student projects, this is the first solo show of Clara Bacou.
Clara Bacou was born in London, England, Camden Town with a multicultural and heterogeneous way of life, a maze of markets and the people who walk them, constant inspiration for alternative culture, music and art.

Bruce Eves: Recognized by the United Nations as a language threatened with extinction, Polari was a secret form of communication created in the 1930s by a certain class of gay men in London at a time when concentration camps were being set up elsewhere. Quentin Crisp was perhaps the most famous proponent of this amalgam of lingua franca, Italian, Romany, rhyming slang, and back-slang, and it allowed speakers the protection to speak freely in an environment fraught with danger. At its height in 1950s and 1960s, Polari was both a weapon and a shield – it was a weapon in its very audacity and aggression, and a shield because it protected the speaker from the real danger of social repression by being unintelligible. To quote Paul Butler, author of Polari: The Lost Language of Gay Men, this argot allowed "people of a shared identity to recognize and communicate with each other [and] created both an identity and the alternative society that housed them; but by the 1970s it had come to be viewed as trivializing. However, in the 1990s there was a revival of interest in Polari. It still served to create an alternative view of reality, but it is an alternative view of historical reality – history from the point of view of gay men." At present, there is an international effort to assemble (and expand) a complete lexicon of Polari, and given there are storm clouds on the horizon, there is something subversive and potentially revolutionary in the act of possessing a secret form of communication. Its knowledge becomes a form of power – the power to speak (and plot) openly in the face of shifting political winds.... If our collective gay history has taught us anything, it is that our present state of grace can, and probably will at some point, abruptly come to an end. Work # 990: Polari 101 (a & b) is a project that pays tribute to those forbears with nerves of steel so tough that their confrontational stance demanded a grudging respect. It is a work that is both funny and frightening; both sexy and serene; and one that wallows in both its superficiality and deeply subversive intellectualism. – Bruce Eves, June 28, 2017.

Oscar Figueroa is strong to stay, so are Francesco Albano, Daniel Segrove, Gon Bregu, Silvia Mei, Silvia Argiolas, and Michael Davey.

We are excited to feature the experimental nature of ceramist artist Natalia Laluq. Natalia will create works using clay, pottery wheel and kiln. RKG's entrance and front area become a backdrop of celebration. The ceramic residency is a demonstration of studio experience in the two-month period. Laluq's entire process, on view for visitors, forms part of the exhibition.

This historical panorama (including images of Margaret Atwood, John Candy, Leonard Cohen, Viola Desmond, Chief Dan George, Wayne Gretzky, Yousuf Karsh, k. d. lang, Marshall McLuhan, Oscar Peterson, Mary Pickford, Buffy Sainte-Marie, David Suzuki, and Pierre Elliott Trudeau) symbolizes the diverse generations who have exemplified Canadian achievement. When the RIC first opened in September 2012, the building's façade depicted important North American and European cultural icons. These portraits were drawn from the Black Star Collection of photojournalism, which, despite its rich representation of 20th-century history, includes few images of Canada. The recent arrival of these Canadian photographs from The New York Times Photo Archive provides an ideal opportunity to exchange the first mural for a new one – a glass vista that celebrates the primacy and eminence of our nation's own history and culture. Curated by the Ryerson Image Centre, designed by Kelsey Blackwell and presented in partnership with the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival and Ryerson University.

Diligence and Elegance: The Nature of Japanese Textiles.
Curated by Natalia Nekrassova.
Diligence and Elegance: The Nature of Japanese Textiles presents over 50 textiles and garments from the Textile Museum of Canada's collection of 19th- and 20th-century artifacts made in Japan for both everyday and occasional use. Luxurious silk and gold fabrics produced in Kyoto's professional weaving workshops are juxtaposed with domestic indigo-dyed cotton, plant-fibre cloth, and silk kimonos crafted in an astonishing spectrum of time-honoured techniques – weaving, dyeing, hand painting, gold foil application and embroidery – that exemplify venerable social and cultural values. The exhibition focuses on the highly refined skills and materials by which textiles have been constructed and decorated over centuries, and on how diligence and ingenuity have shaped their timeless beauty. The persistence of traditions seen in such rigorously executed textiles has come to embody the heart of Japanese aesthetics. Every material, colour and technique has a story to tell.
Diligence and Elegance features the contemporary work of Hiroko Karuno and Keiko Shintani, two Japanese-Canadians whose consummate craftsmanship and philosophies are profoundly connected to the evolution of Japanese textile traditions of spinning, dying and weaving. Their internationally renowned artistic achievements are testimony to the ethics of labour associated with a lifelong investment of time, practice and precision; they position living traditions as opportunities for personal reflection and the acknowledgement of the significance of collective human accomplishments ... more

Kristine Erglis, artist, illustrator, feminist.
In 1994, Kristine Erglis started making art at our studios. We are showing her art from the past and some of her current work. Kristine will not be present for the exhibition. She moved from Toronto to Nova Scotia many years ago in order to seek a gentler, quieter life.
Kristine puts into images, things that most of us are afraid to say or express including how the media has made women feel about their bodies. New, Surgically Removed Hips was shown in Images of Women 1994 in an exhibition celebrating the many aspects and images of women. That exhibition taught both the artist, Kristine and the curator, Ellen Anderson, the difference in perception between men and women. A well-known male artist looked at the image of Surgically Removed Hips and declared his sister had had that operation. "No!" Kristine proclaimed. "It isn't about a medical procedure. It's about how women are made to feel about their bodies!" The male artist insisted that his sister had indeed had the surgery. Ellen and Kristine looked at each other, realizing that the fellow didn't understand the point of the painting. Women who came to view the image, understood immediately and would say, "Yes, I've been made to feel that way". Men ignored the work and quietly walked past it without a word.
Kristine conjures up colourful dreams, joyous leaping lizards, anger, coy angels, a frustrated receptionist; all illicit immediate recognition. Some of the works use humour, and the play of vibrant colours of inks and watercolours are sometimes laced with words. Other works speak for themselves without any words.

Rino Noto / Wave.
The Italian Cultural Institute is pleased to present a solo exhibition of artist Rino Noto's Wave.
In this highly anticipated new series of expected portraits, Wave, Noto contemplates the ebb and flow of candid human activity. But Wave's dozen images do more than merely document the flux of life. Noto delves into the absurd, abstracting these intimate scenes and pulling them out of conventional time and space. These visual peaks and troughs inherent to Noto's imagery – that stark contrast between light and shadow, those jarring hues, the unexpectedly bold forms and rippling landscapes – seem to echo the scenes' conceptual content. In Wave, we catch a brief, truncated glimpse of life's cycles: joy, resilience, purposeful absurdity, all presented in one interconnected package. Like a Warhol silkscreen or a snapshot of daily living broken down by the pointillism of Seurat, it's not a simple photo we see, but an image transformed – just like Noto's many subjects.

The Idea of Summer. Paintings by Brigitte Nowak.
A portion of proceeds will be jointly donated by the artist and the Gallery to Project Canoe, which supports youth facing barriers. One of Project Canoe's initiatives provides young people with wilderness canoe experiences. "Summer is such a powerful idea," noted Tim Richardson, Executive Director of Project Canoe. "We use the outdoors extensively for young people who face economic, social and mental health barriers, and we are thrilled to be part of this fundraising initiative, especially for our 40th anniversary".
"Trying to capture the essence of summer, in paint, has been a joy and a challenge", said artist Brigitte Nowak. "My last solo exhibition included only canoes, but summer means that, and more to me, and I really wanted to explore that idea."
Janet DiBernardo, co-owner of Latitude 44 Gallery, noted, "We have represented Brigitte Nowak for more than 10 years, and her work is always interesting and engaging. As well, we always welcome the opportunity to give back to the community, and this is a wonderful chance to combine beautiful paintings with a worthwhile cause."
Brigitte Nowak's work is included in private and corporate collections, and has won awards in both Canada and the U.S. She is represented by several commercial galleries in Ontario and has also had two public gallery shows.

David Kaufman: THE POSTHUMOUS LANDSCAPE: Jewish Historical Sites in Western Ukraine. Seventy-two years after the Holocaust, western Ukraine is still replete with remnants of Jewish communal life, but the community's history has all but vanished from popular consciousness. Photographer David Kaufman travelled in June 2016 to the cities of Lviv and Chernivtsi, and eighteen surrounding towns, to document the region's abundant Jewish material culture. Kaufman's highly-detailed images depict synagogues, cemeteries, memorials, public spaces and architecture, some functioning, some in a state of ruin. The area's tiny Jewish population struggles today to preserve what it can, with some help from abroad and from local and national agencies.

Unsettling.
Works by Basil AlZeri, Lori Blondeau, Duorama (Paul Couillard and Ed Johnson), Terrance Houle and Lisa Myers.
Curated by Bojana Videkanic.
Unsettling seeks to trouble the narratives of the 150th anniversary of Canada by presenting alternate stories of national identity. The exhibition explores themes ranging from the indigenous history of Scarborough to the proliferation of modernism, from immigration to urban sprawl, and the underlying tensions between ecology and human intervention. The artists offer works that stand perhaps in opposition to presumptive understandings of what Canada is, and the land on which we live.

Ephemera: The Searchings of an Adopted Daughter. Mixed media and stained glass by Kate Greenway. Begun as a doctoral investigation, I counter a lack of artworks about adoptees, birth mothers and adoptive mothers who have experienced the lingering effects of an earlier culture of secrecy and sealed records. In my works of paper and glass art I use my own archival ephemera, including photographs, records and letters, as documentary evidence of my – and others' – adoptive experiences, and as a literal / symbolic connection to the ephemera of adoption. The process of fusing, shattering, layering, collaging and piecing together shards of glass into a cohesive whole is another metaphor for the multiple and layered challenges that affect all touched by adoption ... more

Mother Tongue: Chun Hua Catherine Dong, Raafia Jessa, Jihee Min, Yvonne Singer, Shellie Zhang, Alize Zorlutuna. Language is a universal and abstract system of sounds and symbols. Yet, the social, political and cultural contexts in which a language is spoken greatly affect its development and usages. In ever increasingly globalized societies, our sociolinguistic identity is not often singular.  The language we speak at home, or learned as a child – our mother tongue – may not be the same one used in our everyday lives. Mother Tongue invites us to consider the complex relationships that exist between language and identity; how it defines who we are and how it can inform visual artistic practice.

Jon Sasaki: Things Saved for a Rainy Day. As part of Present | Perfect | Continuous, a year-long exhibition celebrating the Varley Art Gallery's 20th anniversary, Jon Sasaki was invited to create new work in response to our archival holdings. An unused panel from F. H. Varley's studio left in stormy weather is a meditation on the depictions of atmospheric elements in Varley's paintings and on the physical environment in which they are stored and displayed. Varley's junk drawer of 1969 made useful in the present is an attempt to imbue a collection of random "bits and pieces" with a new purpose.

Present | Perfect | Continuous. To celebrate our 20th anniversary, a year-long rotation of our most popular works by F. H. Varley are on view in the Collections Gallery.

Xiaojing Yan: Out from among the tranquil woods. Markham-based Xiaojing Yan is known for her intricate sculptural installations that explore the intersections of the natural and cultural worlds. Her work is at once simple and complex, concrete and abstract; personal and universal. The material qualities of her work, significant on both aesthetic and conceptual levels, are at the core of her practice. She transforms lingzhi mushrooms, star anise, freshwater pearls and cicadae, among others, to explore traditional Chinese mythology and folklore. Ultimately, Yan revisits her own identity as a first generation Canadian, while offering contemporary perspectives on issues of mortality, belonging and contemplation.

Streaming Edison: 21st-Century Luminescence.
Unlike certain eras of 20th-century design such as Art Deco, Futurism, Modernism, and Post-Modernism, Post-Millennium lighting design is not easily identified by a single "trend" or "look". Streaming Edison is not an encyclopedic survey of every significant post-2000 light, or designer, or manufacturer, however the 40 fixtures displayed here are representative works from both smaller-scale production, primarily from Canada, and large-scale manufacturing from well-known international designers and manufacturers. Even within these distinctions of smaller- and larger-scale production are found expressions of the individual approach of the designer and a reflection of specific manufacturers' philosophy, be they intentionally artisanal, or feats of technical prowess.
The most significant change in lighting since the year 2000 is the demise of the incandescent light bulb (the official nod to Mr. Edison's patent), which has been globally legislated out of production, in favour of more "eco" (green and economical) bulbs such as LED, CFL and other energy efficient lighting systems. The quality and colour spectrum of light has changed as a result. The intension of the Streaming Edison exhibition is to focus attention on the distinctions in approach, design and light provided by these works, within an atmospheric environment, while introducing our audience to some of the key designers currently at work in this field.
Designers included in the show are Arturo Alvarez, Anony, Michal Maciej Bartosik, Bomma, Bover, Brothers Dressler, Tom Dixon, Dyson, Koncept, Ingo Maurer, Partisans, Quasar, and Ridgely Studio Works.
Special thanks to klaus, Eurolite, Founded by Garcia, and Furco Electric Inc. for their support of this exhibition ... more

Cultural Topographies: The Complexities of History and Identity in Canada.
Curated by Julie René de Cotret.
This exhibition features concept-driven artworks in ceramic and glass that explore identity, culture and history in Canada. Exhibiting artists include: Ann Beam, Adrian Blackwell, Laurent Craste, Chris Curreri, Léopold L. Foulem, Mathieu Grodet, David R. Harper, Sarah Maloney, Kelly Mark, Nadia Myre, Tasman Richardson and Tim Whiten. These artworks are outstanding examples of the potential of ceramic and glass art works to examine the complexities of our culture, inspiring fresh perspectives and new considerations.
Some of the artists featured in this exhibition have chosen to focus on specific historical markers and some on the evolution of our cultural voices in their broader context demanding that we contemplate their origins. Every work highlights the complexity of our habitus and the inherent potential for our betterment. In doing so they further define our identity.
The hierarchical categorizations and divisions imposed between art and craft are re-examined in this exhibition. Léopold L. Foulem, whose conceptual ceramic practice is principal to the development of this exhibition, once said, "matter doesn't matter", addressing the tendency of the art world, for example, to assign greater value to works made of bronze than to those in ceramic. The conceptual contributions of crafts to the arts are seldom recognized.
These artworks were selected for their aesthetic and conceptual value. In the context of this exhibition, the works embody the important contributions of craft concept to art, specifically in the fields of sculpture and installation. The craft concepts explored by these works are those of containment, and of the object as frame ... more

Harper, Sarah Maloney, Kelly Mark, Nadia Myre, Tasman Richardson and Tim Whiten. These artworks are outstanding examples of the potential of ceramic and glass art works to examine the complexities of our culture, inspiring fresh perspectives and new considerations.
Some of the artists featured in this exhibition have chosen to focus on specific historical markers and some on the evolution of our cultural voices in their broader context demanding that we contemplate their origins. Every work highlights the complexity of our habitus and the inherent potential for our betterment. In doing so they further define our identity.
The hierarchical categorizations and divisions imposed between art and craft are re-examined in this exhibition. Léopold L. Foulem, whose conceptual ceramic practice is principal to the development of this exhibition, once said, "matter doesn't matter", addressing the tendency of the art world, for example, to assign greater value to works made of bronze than to those in ceramic. The conceptual contributions of crafts to the arts are seldom recognized.
These artworks were selected for their aesthetic and conceptual value. In the context of this exhibition, the works embody the important contributions of craft concept to art, specifically in the fields of sculpture and installation. The craft concepts explored by these works are those of containment, and of the object as frame.

SAW Video Media Art Centre is pleased to present a night of live performance and experimental music, featuring Elisa Harkins (Oklahoma / Los Angeles), Fire Queen (Hull QC), and Skin Tone (Montreal QC). Varied in their distinct approaches to performance and sound, from the four-to-the-floor pop beats and choreography of Elisa Harkins, to the swirling improvised transmissions of Fire Queen, to the emotive saxophone squalls of Skin Tone, each performer harnesses the velocity of volume to investigate formulations of identity, conjure cultural and spiritual histories, and amplify the urgency of their speech and language.
In between performances, DJ Golbon Moltaji (Ottawa) will be weaving together a set of layered dance music and sound collage that explores the emotional terrain of mobility and migration.
At Club SAW. FREE admission. Cash bar.
8:30pm: Doors open.
9pm: Skin Tone.
9:45pm: Fire Queen.
11pm: Wampum is an Indigenous electronic music performance by Elisa Harkins who has taken inspiration from native American sheet music from the 1800s and re-arranged it into dance music. Songs are sung in Cherokee as well as English.

Contraint à courir après des ombres plus séduisantes que la réalité; Essays on shadows. Artist Amélie Brisson-Darveau uses strategies of deconstruction and reconstruction to explore the relation between the body, fabric and architecture. Her exhibition Contraint à courir après des ombres plus séduisantes que la réalité; Essays on shadows is an immersive sculpture-based installation exploring the depersonalization of the shadow within film noir as a means to explore the dimensions of space and time. Composed of twelve segments, or what Brisson-Darveau calls "essays", the exhibition takes several forms, from distorted costumes inspired by canonical film noir scenes, to experimental lighting and shadow play. Through the creation of different environments relating to architecture and shadow she creates an assemblage that explores the filmic space and the real space ... more

Its Mouth Only Grows. Artist Miles Rufeld's video installation Its Mouth Only Grows critically explores the storyteller's role as both enchanter and manipulator. Composed of a central narrative presented across three acts, Rufeld's four-channel video depicts an epic portrayal of vegetables sacrificed for industrial development, simultaneously evoking the creation myth and apocalyptic prophecy. Both humorous and tragic, Its Mouth Only Grows draws viewers into the dramatically unfolding fate of the produce, and creates a dialogue between stories of ancient myth and hyper-capitalist cinematic fiction, where storytelling participates in the formation of essentialist ideals, practices, structures and behaviour ... more

Miles Rufelds is a Montréal-based multi-disciplinary artist who holds a BFA from the University of Ottawa. Miles' practice maintains a formal and conceptual emphasis on video, but branches as well into photography, sculpture, media, and audio. Rufeld's work explores the deeply complex relationships that exist between human beings and the things that they consider fictional or unreal, such as cinema and advertising. His work has recently been exhibited at Idea Exchange (Cambridge, Ontario), Gallery 1313 (Toronto, Ontario), and the White House Studio (Toronto, Ontario).

Power Kids. FREE. Tour the gallery and engage in art activities inspired by the current exhibition, Ydessa Hendeles: The Milliner's Daughter, in these arts & crafts workshops for children ages 7-12. 23 Jul: Manikins Come to Life! The manikins in Ydessa Hendeles' The Milliner's Daughter appear as if they have been frozen in a tableau vivant – a living picture. After viewing and talking about the manikins in the exhibition, we will work in small groups – inspired by performance art – to invent a story, and design and make props from mixed media. [...]. http://bit.ly/2rS69Ap. 13 Aug: Family Trees. Ydessa Hendeles' The Milliner's Daughter includes a photograph of the artist at age six, taken by her father soon after her family immigrated to Canada. Inspired by the artist's story of migration, this program will reflect your family's growth. Each participant, working closely with their adult companions, will create a colourful tree structure that will grow and change as they learn about their family members. After choosing what kind of tree your family might resemble, use wire and wood to build the main structure and add small leaves or fruits to represent family members. http://bit.ly/2u6lQrY ... more

25 Jun: Rainbow Bodies. Ydessa Hendeles has created an installation titled From her wooden sleep..., in which wooden manikins represent people – some insiders, some outsiders – but the manikins are mostly monochromatic. After discussing the contextual importance of Hendeles' installation, we will design and make marionette shadow puppets out of paper and cardboard using all the colours of the rainbow as a symbol of inclusion! http://bit.ly/2tKo5hp.
27 Jun: Citizens of a Diverse City. Canada is a diverse country – from coast to coast – and Toronto is a diverse city! In these workshops we will look to Ydessa Hendeles' manikins as a springboard for discussion about difference, diversity and community, then we will invent and create shadow puppets inspired by characters and stories reflecting our own experiences of diversity in Canada. This Power Kids program is presented as part of Harbourfront Centre's Here in the Six – Celebrating Multiculturalism. Drop-in sessions will run 10-11am, 11:30am-12:30pm, and 1-2pm. http://bit.ly/2tq46p6.
9 Jul: DIY Wind-Up Toys. Ydessa Hendeles' Aero-Car inspires this STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) program. We will discover how Hendeles speaks to both the past and the future in her work by drawing upon the use of antique toys and futuristic automatons. Each participant will then design and build their own retro-style wind-up toy using springs, thread and cardboard. Once complete, we will wind up our toys and watch them go zoom! http://bit.ly/2rNMCG2.
23 Jul: Manikins Come to Life! The manikins in Ydessa Hendeles' The Milliner's Daughter appear as if they have been frozen in a tableau vivant – a living picture. After viewing and talking about the manikins in the exhibition, we will work in small groups – inspired by performance art – to invent a story, and design and make props from mixed media. Then, using our props, we will pose as living models in our tableaux vivants. Each group will be photographed in one (or more) pose(s), and we will share those pictures with you! http://bit.ly/2rS69Ap.

After choosing what kind of tree your family might resemble, use wire and wood to build the main structure and add small leaves or fruits to represent family members. http://bit.ly/2u6lQrY.
27 Aug: Rebuilding What's Broken. Ydessa Hendeles is not just an artist, but a collector and curator as well! She often collects objects and then organizes these objects to present a new narrative or idea. In this workshop, we will recontextualize a collection of repurposed children's toys, using them as the base materials for an artwork. Participants will challenge themselves by creating assemblage sculptures with different elements in only one chosen colour. Their sculpture will tell a story or create a larger form that has never existed before. http://bit.ly/2uvQUCt.

Frida Kahlo: An Illustrated Life. At Joseph D. Carrier Art Gallery, 901 Lawrence Avenue West, Toronto.
Famed Mexican artist Frida Kahlo created some of the most iconic and challenging images of the 20th century. Her beautiful and evocative self-portraits have captivated the art world, with fans like Madonna singing her praises. Now, more than 60 years after her death, Toronto artist Franco De Simone reimagines some of Kahlo's most famous – and infamous – works using still photography and mixed-media.
From The Broken Column to Cropped Hair, De Simone's photographs evoke a feeling of having captured Frida during the creation of her own self-portraits... a stolen snapshot taken just as the final brush stroke was completed.
An Illustrated Life features 27 works, a collection reflecting the finest works of the woman whose vibrant and tragic life continues to resonate both within her beloved Mexico and the rest of the world.
Don't miss this unique opportunity to see these photographic interpretations of Frida Kahlo's rich, iconic works. A brief promotional video here: ww.youtube.com/watch?v=OtmQp7mk8PE&feature=youtu.be. www.francodesimone.com.

Book launch and reception of Sensenomake Circus: a collaboration in mixed media. Sensenomake Circus chronicles a 3-year creative journey completed by visual artists Phyllis Kirk and Bronna Fenichel from 1987-1990. A true collaboration in every sense of the word from concept to execution. Sensenomake Circus satirizes western values using the circus as a metaphor with black and white performance artists juxtaposed on layers of brilliantly colored mixed media backgrounds. The unbounded energy of the circus-based alternative worlds explodes past the confines of the canvas and the addition of unusual materials and text further heightens the satirical expression ... more

26 Paintings by Ron Lambert at Kent Farndale Gallery, 231 Water Street, Port Perry ON. Ronald Malcolm Lambert, one of Canada's original postwar generation abstract painters, pays homage to his critically acclaimed participation as one of the 26 artists in the Canadian Abstract Exhibition that took place at Toronto's Hart House Art Gallery in late 1952. This historic show was a breakthrough for abstract art in Toronto featuring Lawren Harris, Jack Bush, Harold Town and seven other members of Painters Eleven. As the last living artist of the 26, now 89 years old, Ron has conceived an ambitious and elaborate tribute to his peers that he describes as "the best, boldest, biggest and brightest" work in his amazing 70-year career (since 1947!) as an abstract painter.

NUBARR & PAGINTON: Painting Canada. A selection of oils, acrylics and watercolours by Nubarr and George Paginton, featuring Canadian landscapes, seascapes and impressionistic abstracts. At Art Square Gallery, 334 Dundas Street West, Toronto ON.
Tony Paginton and Shahe Sabag are presenting the works of their fathers, George Paginton (1901-1988) and Noubar Sabag (1920-2006). Both fathers were immigrants from very different backgrounds; one from England and the other an Armenian from Syria. Though the two artists did not know each other, their sons met in Canada and are both immensely proud of what their fathers achieved as lifelong active painters despite their challenging beginnings. After their settlement in their adopted home, Nubarr and George fell in love with the Canadian landscape and spent a lifetime expressing it in their respective styles.
