Gallery Artists

Susan Dobson had a solo exhibition of her  “Viewfinder” photographs at Gallery Stratford, was featured on the  cover of Prefix Photo Magazine and was included in Fotonoviembre 2017 in  Tenerife, Spain (seen above).  We are also looking forward to an  upcoming May 2018 solo exhibition featuring new work from her “Slide  Library” series of photographs.

Aganetha Dyck completed her two-year, long-distance collaboration with  the beekeepers at Temple University, Philadelphia and was included in  “Animal Intent”, a show at apexart in NYC.  We are also pleased that two  of Dyck’s figurines from her “Masked Ball Series” were acquired by  Global Affairs this year.

The “Eyes as Big as Plates” photographers Riitta Ikonen and Karoline  Hjorth launched their book featuring the photographs from the series.   The book was listed as a top holiday gift by New York Magazine.

Murray Favro enjoyed a solo exhibition at the Glenhyrst Art Gallery in Brantford.

Canada 150 celebrations at public galleries were plentiful this year,  with Will Gorlitz, Jason McLean and Diana Thorneycroft all included in  exhibitions at the National Gallery of Canada. Will Gorlitz and Michael  Smith were included in the Beaverbrook Art Gallery’s celebration of  their permanent collection and re-hang.

Will Gorlitz’s May exhibition was reviewed by Border Crossings Magazine.

Museum London organized a major retrospective for Brian Jones, the first in over 25 years.

James Kirkpatrick had an exhibition of his sound sculptures at NAISA  North Media Arts Centre, an exhibition in Halifax and a pop-up show in  London.  Kirkpatrick is busy preparing for his upcoming touring survey  exhibition starting at JNAAG in Sarnia in November 2018.

Jason McLean enjoyed a solo exhibition at the Glenhyrst Art Gallery in Brantford.

The collaborative room from our “Not Bad for London” exhibition was  recently donated to the Judith & Norman Alix Art Gallery.  This past  spring, they recreated the room exactly as we had it hanging in 2011.


Erik Olson attended two artist  residencies this year, one in LA and the other in Italy.  He also  produced three new unique etchings with New Leaf Editions in Vancouver.
