Our South Gallery is an inviting and hands-on environment which looks to the past 100 years in Canadian Art. Paired with an extensive library and a comfortable sofa, Ingram's South Gallery hosts an ever changing exhibition of important works by Canadian greats. Recent weeks have seen the arrival of new works by Sylvia Hahn, Barker Fairley, André Lapine, Nicholas Hornyansky and Mary Dignam.
> Ingram Gallery welcomes important Canadian artist Jack Nichols
to our roster. Please stay tuned to Ingram Art News! and our website for news and more on Nichols at Ingram Gallery.
Lions, Gazelles & Elephants - Oh My! MonkeyBiz's lovely and artful creatures have arrived at Ingram Gallery courtesy of Eat My Words.
Eat My Words is a non-profit company based in Toronto, now the sole distributor for MonkeyBiz in Canada. Their mission is to provide a special gift while raising money and awareness. Known for its beautiful baked treats, namely cupcakes delivered in fabulous turquoise hat boxes to raise money for the Stephen Lewis Foundation, Eat My Words' next chapter and partnership with MonkeyBiz makes sense in that it is utterly unique and making a difference.
MonkeyBiz grew out of a desire to create employment and empowerment for disadvantaged women in Cape Town, South Africa. MonkeyBiz has lead to the revival of the ancient African tradition of beading and now employs 450 women. Each woman is paid for every item produced and since they work from home, they can look after their families and avoid transportation costs. Every beadwork produced is a one-of-a-kind piece signed by the artist.
These wonderfully spirited animals and dolls are creating a world wide sensation. They are not only stunning conversation pieces, they are gifts that make a difference and Ingram Gallery is thrilled to be part of this movement!
Please visit the gallery during November & December, or be in touch, to see and learn more about these purposeful creations.
Andrew Bell, 'Zero Bomb' (2008)
We look forward to seeing you at the gallery soon. Please be sure to
join us for Barry Hodgson's opening reception on November 15th!
With warm wishes,
Tarah Aylward, Director
