Summer Series IV
Summer at the gallery is always fresh and fun. We pause from our solo exhibitions and look to new works by gallery artists who are working towards solos and ready to dialogue with art lovers and collectors. Summer Series IV is a dynamic, continually rotating exhibition that is diverse in subject matter, media and scale. We invite you to enjoy a visit to the gallery this month and into September -- come and experience all that is new at Ingram Gallery!

Travis SHILLING at Ingram Gallery
A lot of the work is about setting, about adapting and about not giving up.
~ Travis Shilling, 2011
It is with great enthusiasm that we welcome artist, filmmaker and playwright Travis Shilling to the gallery. A well known name in Canadian art, Shilling has been busy in recent months. Airing just last week on Bravo! Arts & Minds was a very strong profile of the artist with footage filmed at his studios in Toronto, Rama and also here at the gallery. In addition, Shilling was well reviewed by the National Post in March of this year for his sensational How to Drown a Fish exhibition at the Gladstone Hotel:
Travis Shilling is a paint chronicler. He captures the hidden in the visible - after-effects and fall-outs from events real and imagined. Travis' series, How to drown a fish, marks out territories of disaster and survival. Asking how one drowns a fish is asking the impossible because human and animal alike adapt to inner and outer hardship. Still, people try to drown a fish every day, through damaging the environment or self-destruction. Travis' work reflects a rich imagination and exceptional skill. These paintings juxtapose civilization and the animal world in a narrative dreamscape.
