Barker FAIRLEY and E.B. COX
February 25 - March 17
We begin our exhibition season with two longtime favourites at Ingram Gallery: Barker Fairley and E.B. Cox. The show and sale opens February 25th and will run through until March 17th. We have the unexpected in store and have been working hard to ensure this is a most memorable and successful exhibition. Please mark your calendars for the afternoon of our opening celebration on Saturday, February 25th.
A new year has seen the arrival of new works to the gallery from several studios across Canada. We have four canvases in fresh from Travis Shilling and well as a strong collection of new mid and large scale works from Sean Yelland. Our windows on Avenue Road are currently featuring a rotation of the new works in. Paired with our installation of the remaining ceramic tile works of Ryan Price and a stellar new large scale work by Peter Mitchell -- a visit to the gallery in January will prove rewarding.
This month is the last chance to catch Sean Yelland at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM)
. Short-listed for the Kingston Prize, Yelland is featured in The Institute for Contemporary Culture's exhibition of 30 finalists presented at the ROM until January 29th. Yelland's portrait of Flo
(32 x 28 inches, oil on canvas) is featured on the cover of the exhibition catalogue. We have copies available at the gallery.
"We are very pleased with the high quality and depth of this year's submissions," says Julian Brown, Co-Founder of the Kingston Prize. "The purpose of our jury is to select winners based on those exact criteria - quality and depth. Selecting this year's winners was not easy, and on behalf of the Prize and Jury, we wish all the best to the talented artists who submitted their work."
Pausing in appreciation of this new year and all of you... Thank you!! We look forward to seeing you & all that 2012 has ahead.
With best wishes,
Tarah Aylward, Director
