A Cast of Castings
April 14 - May 1 . 2012


Opening reception with artist: Saturday, April 14th - 2pm to 4pm 


Gesturing puppets take and set the stage for Scott Owles' first solo exhibition with the gallery.  When to draw the bottom line? Who pulls the strings? How to know when to fold?  A Cast of Castings offers timely questions to ponder through skillfully composed large scale canvas works.

Owles' specific use of puppets, a representation of the human form, as subject matter, reinforces his interest in figurative painting.  Rounding out this new collection of important works: a self portrait and a remarkable life sized human figure (as viewed in studio in the photograph above).




Masterfully committed to his profession, Scott Owles' studies have taken him from the Ontario College of Art, through the studio of (Michael) John Angel to the Florence Academy in Italy. 


A full catalogue of A Cast of Castings is available as a PDF.



Le Salon des RefusÚs 
May 5 - May 23 . 2012 
Opening reception with artist: Saturday, May 5th - 2pm to 4pm

Louis deNiverville

The Canadian King of Collage looks to the remnant papers of past collage works to both inspire and create the new works of Le Salon des RefusÚs.  Using paint, paper, scissors and glue -- de Niverville paints his textured and patterned papers, while building his imagery up in layers.

Life has layers, so many possibilities. - Louis de Niverville
