I am so happy to share with you that starting this spring I will be represented by Circle Arts Gallery, located at charming lake side town of Tobermory,ON.
The Circle Arts story began in 1969 when Gale Jensen - a professor of Social Sciences at the University of Michigan - persuaded six students of the Ontario College of Art (OCA) to build an art gallery and studio on land he owned in Tobermory, Ontario.
The group stayed in the small town on the picturesque Bruce Peninsula for the summer, producing oil paintings, watercolours, wood block prints, sculptures, silk screens, textiles, jewelry and pottery. They returned to Toronto to finish their studies at the end of the summer, then moved to Tobermory permanently the following spring.
The Circle Arts story encompasses elements of its times and locales. It is the story of youthful enthusiasm and artistic maturity, local involvement and global markets, sound business sense and high creativity. More than anything else, it is the story of a commitment to Canadian art, and to those who produce and support it.
Circle Arts at #14 Bay Street, Tobermory, has five distinctive gallery spaces. In the lower gallery, you will find glassware, woodwork, one of a kind jewellery, ceramics, textiles, prints and fabric art.
In five upper galleries you will find sculptural works, paintings, photographs, hand-pulled prints and one of a kind furniture creations.
This year Circle Arts Gallery is celebrating 50 years and the opening reception will be held on May 18th. The paintings will be displayed until Oct.7th 2019.
If you are not able to visit the gallery in person, I invite you to open this link and view my works!
