Harold Town 'Works from 1952 - 1987'
>> 8 - 28 October . 2009
If you catch only one art event this fall - be sure that it is Harold Town
at Ingram Gallery, announced by Toronto Life (Oct. 2009) as the #1 must-see art event of the season
. Opening on Thursday the 8th of October at 11am this is an incredible opportunity to acquire important work by one of Canada's brightest art stars. In addition to significant oils from both the Parks
series, the exhibition features 'Aggressive Abstract' from 1952, 'War Shadow' from 1960, a 'Vale Variation' on paper (1975-76) and stunning Single Autographic Prints from the early 1950s. Please contact the gallery for a full catalogue.
Harold Barling Town was one of the most widely exhibited and frequently honoured artists of his generation or of his country. He showed at the Venice and Sao Paulo Biennials, at Kassel and Lugano, in New York and London, in Paris and Cologne. His work was acquired by the Tate Gallery, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, the Cleveland Museum, and many others, as well as by all the major institutions in Canada. He was awarded numerous international prizes, especially for his Single Autographic Prints; he received honorary degrees and the order of Canada; he was delighted to have his drawings censored by the Vatican, and petulant when his drawings were not among those erotic works subpoened by Toronto's police at the Eros '65 exhibition at the Dorothy Cameron Gallery in the spring of 1965.

Painter, scholar and critic, Barker Fairley
returns to the gallery walls in his third formal exhibition at Ingram Gallery. In addition to the minimal landscapes and figurative 'facial landscapes' that we all love, the works available include Fairley's rare still life works - 'cheeky' flowers as the artist liked to say. In addition to the collection of paintings, we have several titles available on Fairley, including the 1980 limited edition Freidland catalogue by Paul Duval.
