Marian Wihak
Excavation(...closer to where we began)

January 16 - January 21, 2018 
Opening Reception:  January 16, 6pm-9pm ( with Poetry Reading by author Lisa Richter)

Pekota Design as part of the Toronto Design Offsite Festival 
406 Pacific Avenue
Toronto, ON 

Multidisciplinary artist-designer MARIAN WIHAK, embraces the theme of connectedness across epochs of large-arc narratives and multiplicitous events in her latest installation, "Excavation (closer to where we began)". Showing as part of the 2018 TODO Festival, and commissioned originally by Sculpting New Reads as a response to richly textured meandering histories within Lisa Richter’s new book of poetry “Closer to Where We Began”, Wihak’s work takes the form of an excavation, a compelling labyrinth of evocative narratives, revelations and unravellings.

Suit of Lights

January 24, 2018 
Curated group film screening:  January 24 at 7pm 

Revue Cinema
400 Roncesvalles Avenue
Toronto, ON M6R 2M9

Suit of Lights is composed with footage of a Spanish bullfight, that iconic imagery of masculinity and violence masked as nationalism. The footage was drawn from the Jacques Madvo Collection filmed in Spain between 1976-1978 at a time when Spain began its flawed transition to democracy following Franco’s death. The 16mm film has been decayed in soil and laboriously re-photographed and these abstractions ground the inquiry surrounding why citizens accept the harm done to others in their name.

My Diversities

la Maison des Arts
2 Lapalme Street
Embrun, ON

I refuse to limit myself in a given "style". I don't like pigeon holes I keep faith with the freedom of my canvas. I do not paint conventional subjects - I leave that to other schools of art. I worked at "making the grade" in art school, and painted what I was taught, I am a not a photocopier. I use no gimmicks. All my works are from inspiration and arise from what I FEEL about what I SEE.

It is 40 inches wide x 30 high heavily textured and dramatic. i have not yet posted it on my Facebook page -waiting for the publicity to be official.

Public Opening: October 14, 2017 at 2:00 pm

Gallery Luz
372 Sainte Catherine West
Suite 418 - Belgo Building
Montreal, QC

The acrylic and mixed media paintings in this exhibition are from my Water Series and Navigation Series. In the latter, I use obsolete nautical hydrographic charts in which numerical soundings indicating water levels, and navigational symbols become partially visible aesthetic spaces that appear to emerge and disappear within the paintings. While referencing rapid climate change impacting water levels, my aesthetic investigation is broadly located in the phenomenon of identity dislocation. My practice includes painting, photography, video, installation, performance art.

Lakeside Centre, Ottawa, ON

The public is invited to view and purchase recent paintings, prints, and an installation in progress titled Dislocation. Consistent themes across disciplines relate to shifting water levels impacted by global warming and melting of Arctic ice and glaciers. I draw from first-hand experiences such as winter travel in communities along the historically frozen Arctic Northwest Passage, sailing and kayaking on the shifting water levels of the Ottawa River. My studio is at Britannia Beach, also on the Ottawa River.

Loop Gallery Presents:
Andrew Duff: #VirtualGraffiti

January 6 - January 28, 2018

Loop Gallery
1273 Dundas Street West
Toronto, ON

Duff​’s current body of work is #totallyfake. In an era of “Fake News,” overtly posed images and oversharing on social media, ​Duff​ asks, “why can’t I make fake art?” #VirtualGraffiti​ explores issues of unverified storytelling, ubiquitous content creators and concepts of modern media, while playfully celebrating our willingness to believe it all. When “likes” and #hashtags trump actual content, we find ourselves overrun with celebrities of all stripes behaving badly — and unknowns becoming celebrities for the same ill-advised reasons.

P. Roch Smith: got ’em, got ’em, need ’em
January 6 - January 28, 2018

Loop Gallery
1273 Dundas Street West
Toronto, ON

P. Roch Smith’s got ’em, got ’em, need ’em recreates and reimagines the entire set of 1975 – 76 O-Pee-Chee NHL hockey cards. Each of the 395 individually framed cards in the set has been digitally altered in terms of colour, scale, and legibility.

The title refers to the verbal cues associated with sorting through another person’s collection — a mantra that would signal a potential trade.

Muskoka Artists, Lynda Lynn, Pat Whittle, Janice Feist and Wendie Donabie present 4 Skins, an exhibition exploring the vulnerability and resilience of 'skin' in its many forms. Each artist will share her interpretation of 'skins' by pushing her comfortable use of acrylic paints and mediums to create acrylic skins incorporated in both 2 and 3D works. The artists hope to increase understanding that all things in the world have ‘skins’ that need to be protected, preserved and kept healthy.

The show features photo-based digital art using imagery composed entirely of light. Limited editions are printed on archival paper, canvas, diffused aluminum. The imagery uses controlled movement of the what the camera can "see" but the eye cannot, resulting in "lightscapes": cityscapes and pyrotechnic imagery which is digitally interpreted, celebrating light, space and time.

Cocktail Reception: October 13, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Lawrence Park Community Church
2180 Bayview Avenue
Toronto, ON

Bring to Light is about the absence of cultural diversity in Canadian art. While I find henna to be a part of my personal narrative, it is incorporated universally as a symbol of festivity, celebration, femininity, and craft. The images of the cityscape with the henna patterns reflect my desire to integrate the concepts of my place in both the city and in the artistic expression of the city.

Carmela Casuccio
Seen From Within - Entering the City
September 15, 2017 - October 14, 2017

Yellow House Gallery
921 Kingston Road
Toronto, ON

Known for her series of abstract cityscapes, Carmela Casuccio has taken an exciting turn in a new body of work débuting at Yellow House Gallery. Moving into the imagined city, this new work explores the spaces that could only be glimpsed from a distance in the past. Referencing deconstructed architecture, the viewer can see the scene from many angles at once. Her paintings capture the layers we cannot see, the stories beneath the cityscape, which serve as the foundation of the present.

Many themes are visible in his works, such as, portraits, lemko churches, linear-expressionism, icons and surrealistic-symbolism. In this exhibit the theme of linear expressionism dominates the figurative form. You will have an opportunity to view these masterfully created works of romantic traditional Ukrainian imagery.

100 Years of Remembrance

September 2, 2017 – September 23, 2017

Reception by Invitation
International Pavilion Belgium
7 Clarence Street
Ottawa, ON

That last degree of consciousness, that single moment between this life and the next where time and space become indivisible. A tale of connection that stretches between now and forever. An upright stone, intimate and powerful, was also man’s first weapon. This sculpture represents the cross-over point in one mind’s deception as it slips into its vanishing place offering him the refuge afforded by reminders of love and of home, amidst the sights and sounds of man’s worst imaginings.

Using a combination of plein air paintings and studio work, this body of work reflects on the Grand River and its surrounding area known as the Haldimand Tract. Using visual language in landscape art, it speaks softly to the teaching of the two row wampam belt; Living side by side, journeying together, with mutual respect, honour and humility.
