Summer Series VI
July 9 - August 23 . 2013
That we have installed the new works for our 6th Summer Series
means two things: summer is here and we have great new works awaiting you at the gallery. Our Summer Series
always provides the opportunity for us to reflect our appreciation for the great artists we work with. A pause from our tailored solo exhibitions enables all of us to consider and collect great new works that are straight from studio to gallery wall.
This year's installment includes a new large scale work by Rachel Berman
, superb new pieces from both Peter Mitchell
and Sara Sniderhan
. Also in the mix is an exceptional new pair of figurative works from Scott Owles
and a strong collection of small works from Ryan Price
. New to this year's Summer Series
-- we invited two guest artists, Kapil Harnal and Igor Sinitar, to join us for this special event. Visiting the gallery throughout the summer weeks ahead will prove to be rewarding and enriching. We look forward to discussing the works and the artists of Summer Series VI
For press and sales information please enquire with the gallery
. Exhibition catalogue, artists' CVs and statements available as PDFs.Jack BEDER
Also new in at the gallery is a lovely collection of works by Jack Beder
(1910-1987). With an interest in people and places, quite like that of Rachel Berman -- Jack Beder is an important part of our art history. Beder received much acclaim as an artist in the 1930s and was renowned for documenting the streets and buildings he knew and loved.
Montrealer Jack Beder was, and arguably still is, an artist's artist ... the small Montreal buildings that are often Beder's subject matter of choice come through with a force that is both architectural and broodingly meditative.
-Henry Lehmann, The Gazette (2006)
We are happy to have these newly available works from different periods in the artist's life, and in an array of media, for you this summer.

Toronto artist Ryan Dineen
is now on board at Ingram Gallery. With successful solo and group exhibitions under his belt here and in the U.S., we are looking forward to what lies ahead for Dineen. Dineen was born and raised in downtown Toronto. Working confidently in a variety of Canadian inspired themes, he continually finds inspiration in his immediate surroundings. In addition to his studio work, Dineen's renowned murals can be seen on numerous walls in cities across the world ranging from Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles to Osaka, Japan.
"Dineen's ... paintings demonstrate that our own gaze often determines the gratification that an object gives us."
