Always fun trying new mediums and most of all – a great challenge to keep within your creative aesthetics. Here is my piece from the January 29th  LetitBurn group show at 416 Gallery “La Guerrière”. Great combination of #woodburning + #modernbatik . SOLD opening night.

Going Bananas!

On November 7, I took part in a group show at 416 Gallery called “Going Bananas”. The idea was to take over the gallery space with all things bananas; artwork, food, drinks. The night was lots of fun with some great artwork created. Here is my piece:

EVENT: Grand Opening for 416Gallery


I was recently invited to be part of a new collective created by Jimmy Chiale. I am looking forward to being inspired by all the talented artists/collective members!

Representing for 416 Gallery  #416collective – The first show theme was “Good ol’ 416”
my piece “TDot Flow” and my inspiration: “The energy of so many different people coming together is what makes Toronto so unique and admired. Chaotic, Spectacular, Frustrating .. Inspiring – Its part of our Tdot Flow.”

about 416 Gallery:

416GALLERY is a contemporary art gallery in Toronto founded and directed by abstract artist & curator Jimmy Chiale. It is located at 404 Queen street east, two blocks east of Parliament. 

The first week of every month, the gallery showcases CHIALE’s bright and colourful abstract work. The last week of every month is dedicated to a series of group shows curated by CHIALE exhibiting a large variety of local artists.
The Grand opening month will be different starting the first week of September with the collective’s show and the week after with Chiale’s work.

Throughout the month, the space can be rented weekly or hourly to individual artists, collectives, local communities, and charitable or non-profit organizations with Jimmy Chiale’s curatorial help, if required, to guarantee a successful event. The space is perfectly designed to host any small or medium scale events such as receptions, classes, photo/video shoots, installations and exhibitions. The gallery can also host artists talks, workshops, classes and movie screenings that are open to the community, kids and artists. The primary focus is to assist and promote local artists in Toronto by showcasing and selling their work to art lovers.

The gallery provides a way for artists to connect with the local art community and its supporters by providing assistance and presenting opportunities to help them accomplish their careers as artists in the way that they desire. 416GALLERY is a professional, fun, inspiring and creative environment where everyone can meet and discuss art over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine.
See you there!
