D. S. Peterson: The Colony24 Views.
In this series of 24 panels of works in oil plus a narrated video work, D. S. Peterson captures the urban landscape of Toronto, mostly taken from his observations of the city skyline from the Kensington Market area.
"I am fascinated by the old and the new in the same frame. I like to think of what cities were like in the day of that old red brick before electricity and automobiles arrived. Everything changed after that. This view shows the duality of the old and the new."
The 24-min. video work accompanying the panel paintings gives the exhibition a narrative, another layer of this process to which the artist hopes viewers can relate, and through which the artist is able to share his urban sights.

Digital Spheres. Clara Bacou ... more
Digital Spheres. Clara Bacou.
Exhibition statement: 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.

Urban Gallery presents our June 2017 group show: Proud Art celebrates Toronto Pride 2017 with the work of four artists in various media including paintings in acrylic on canvas, digital ink and coloured pencil on paper and canvas, to digital prints on canvas and woodblock. Artists: Hank Blondeau, Jeffrey Mason, Barbara Zumer, Eugene Nam.

Hank Blondeau is a former digital producer reborn as an artist. He teaches part-time at Centennial College and lives and works in Toronto – though his imagination takes him regularly to many other places.
"The world we inhabit is changing so quickly, it is hard to grasp what the lives of the generation before ours went through, never mind what the generations to come will face. Through my work, I explore what these divides mean to us as individuals, our society and to our collective future."

Jeffrey Mason.
U.S. immigrant
A giant and an artist
Drawing mostly cats.

Eugene Nam is an Asian gay man who immigrated to Canada from South Korea 5 years ago. He likes to express his experiences, emotions, and personal philosophy through his work.
"Living in Toronto has been my dream since when I was 16. I feel that Toronto has afforded me a safe space to be who I am and an opportunity to explore both my creative and intellectual sides. I am happy to call Toronto my home. I strive to live my life fearlessly."

Barbara Zumer loves words, creative writing and making a statement. She has worked as a producer in television commercial production for over 20 years both internationally and nationally.

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.
