Le Shi Solo Exhibition: New Works

May 14 - June 01, 2022

Opening Reception: Saturday, May 14, 2022: 2-5PM

Naturally picturesque, Canadian landscapes are diverse, vast, and breath-taking. From May 14th to June 1st, take a vacation to Eastern Canada, through the depiction of marshes, forests and wetlands, in a new series of acrylic paintings by artist Le Shi. Over the past year, Shi has created a series of works inspired by National and Provincial Parks in Ontario. Noteworthy landscapes include, Hardy Lake, Horseshoe Valley, Bondi Village, and Walker Lake. Bondi Village is a cottage resort, on Lake of Bays, near Dwight and noteworthy historic landmark, Algonquin Park. Travel through seasons and experience symphonies of colour at our exhibition of New Work by Le Shi.

as Le Shi said: “My landscape painting is my response to nature, especially to the environment where I live. I feel the environment through my heart and translate this by a filtering and colouring process. Walking along the river through the bush and sitting on the rocks watching the trickling ripples of water makes me feel at peace in the tranquility of nature.”

Upcoming Exhibitions

The Poetry of Life: A Still Life Group Exhibition

June 04 - June 22, 2022

Magenta peonies, bisected fruit, and an elongated vase full of peaches illuminated by warm sunlight… Stilleven, the Dutch translation for “Still-Life”. All images that have been encapsulated within western art history since the 16th century. Still-life art illustrates the configuration of innate objects crafted by humans and collected from nature. The popularity of still-life paintings has been widely contested throughout western history. However, one could argue the invaluable quality contemporary still-life artworks can offer. “The Poetry of Life” is an exhibition that begs the question: in a world navigating rapid technological change, what would it mean to slow down and visually consume seemingly uninspiring objects found within the everyday? As Marcus Aurelius (Roman Emperor and philosopher) did maintain, one should find beauty in the mundane, in everyday objects and you will find happiness; find the poetry in life and mediate on it. The act of viewing, observing and contemplating still-life art encompasses an act of mindfulness, through the slowing-down and drawing attention to observable brush strokes, varied colour schemes, and sophisticated compositions. The visual deconstruction of inanimate objects transforms our knowledge of the everyday, reminding us that life can be extraordinary. Featured works by Simon Andrew, Walter Bachinski, Gary Cody, Jennifer Hornyak, Robert Lemay, Leslie Poole, Dorothy Knowles and more.
