All new works to the walls and windows await you at the gallery this month and next, as our 9th annual Summer Series runs through until August 20th.  This invigorating group exhibition evolves throughout the summer with updates to the collection each week.

Sean Yelland is featured in the new Summer 2016 issue of the Queen's Quarterly: A Canadian Review.  His beautiful works on the cover and throughout pair well with excellent essays -- all combining for a perfect summer read.  We have copies at the gallery to share and superb Yellands on the wall for you to enjoy.  

Many new titles in Canadian art have also recently arrived.  We have just re-stocked the earlier sold out MMFA catalogue The Beaver Hall Group: 1920s Modernism in Montreal.  Also of note, we have curated a complete Lawren Harris book collection to complement the Art Gallery of Ontario's summer blockbuster exhibition The Idea of North: The Paintings of Lawren Harris.

Group Exhibition
July & August . 2016

Our influential annual group exhibition returns for the ninth straight year.  A focused snap  shot of the contemporary artists we work with, Summer Series IX enables gallery visitors and collectors to see all that we are about in these outside-of-solo-exhibition new works. 

Sara Sniderhan's Gone but still here (right) is a pointed composition in its gracefully successful rendering. 

A collection of all new works from John Doyle's studio (please click here to view) hang along with the new works of Sean Yelland, Travis Shilling, Jessica Levman and Ryan Dineen.


Bodies are not fixed or contained; they are fluid, constantly changing and interconnected with their environment. My artwork captures the layers of the body and recurring patterns of nature, fusing the internal and the external - bones, skin, viscera, roots, earth, water - to illuminate the human condition.  - Jessica Levman, July 2016

Born and raised in Toronto, Levman studied throughout Canada and abroad in both Paris and London.  Fully immersed in culture and community, she also teaches, volunteers, and mentors the next generation of artists.  Working in a signature mix of materials, Levman's figurative works (Left: Le Vaisseau, 2016) on mylar offer through a 3D lens an understanding of our bodies and our inner structures.  Along with Levman's mylar works we also have in at the gallery a collection of her exceptional printmaking.

Please contact the gallery for the artist's CV and/or list of available new works.


We warmly welcome artist David Michael Scott, new to the gallery this month.  Scott's paintings, monotypes, blockprints and drawings all share a remarkable technical prowess.  Born in Toronto in 1964, Scott has been exhibiting professionally since a very young age.  Please stay tuned for a full feature profile of David Michael Scott in our next issue of Ingram Art News.
Historical Canadian Painting 

September 10 - 24 . 2016

The international eye for historical Canadian painting has increased in recent years.  From the major Emily Carr and Tom Thomson exhibitions at Dulwich Picture Gallery in London, UK, to American collector and curator Steve Martin mounting a major Harris exhibition at the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, there has been no finer time for late 19th and early 20th century Canadian artists.

Over the last year we have been actively acquiring works for our upcoming exhibition: Historical Canadian Painting.  Opening on Saturday, September 10th and running through until the 24th, the exhibition promises a compelling collection of works created by contemporaries of the Group of Seven.  J.W. Beatty, Joachim Gauthier and Herbert S. Palmer, as examples, hang alongside unexpected highlights including an Elizabeth McGillivray Knowles oil on panel as well as an early work by Doris McCarthy.

Stay tuned for our next issue for a full feature on this must see exhibition.

Also new in at the gallery are newly available works by sculptor and dear friend of the Group of Seven, E.B. Cox.  This summer has seen the Free the Greek Gods campaign in high gear.  Please find here an important update from E.B.'s daughter Kathy:

Free the Greek Gods in 2016!

Ingram Gallery has been working closely with family and friends of renowned sculptor E.B. Cox (1914-2003) to return his magnificent sculpture collection, the "Garden of the Greek Gods," to a public setting.  The sculpture garden has been trapped behind the fences of Muzik Nightclub at Exhibition Place for the last three years. It can no longer be seen by the public, and many of the works have been damaged while under the control of the club.  At the time of publication, the fate of the Greek Gods is on the agenda at Toronto's City Council meeting, but a decision has not yet been made.  We hope that Council will do the right thing, and insist that this wonderful collection be removed from Muzik's leased property, and returned to a public setting where it can once again be enjoyed by the art-loving public.

Coming this October, Brian Burke's (R.C.A.) solo exhibition Higgs Field opens on the 13th (preview image: Higgs Field #11, 2016 - right).

Summertime in the city is a most opportune time to visit the gallery often.  With the variety of new works in our current exhibition, new books in The Book Shop, visiting artists and the unexpected -- it all makes for the best reasons to enjoy your gallery, the neighbourhood and more this July and August.

All the best,
