- SALON III: PHOTO ALBUM
Opening Reception: Thursday November 19th 2015
Exhibition Dates: November 19 – January 10, 2016
Project Gallery will be hosting it’s annual salon-style art exhibition at our Queen Street gallery location from November 19 – January 10, 2016. This two month-long exhibit will showcase a dynamic roster of many artists working with diverse subject matter, media and styles.
The Salon exhibition style was established in 1667 in France by the Academie des Beaux-Arts and held in the Louvre. To accommodate the vast quantity of work submitted by students of the Academie, artworks were displayed from floor to ceiling with little space separating frames. This style has since been incorporated throughout history in museums and galleries, including the Art Gallery of Ontario’s display of its European collection.
- CHRIS HARMS: “Rise in Fall”
Opening Reception: Thursday Nov 12 (6-10pm) at Project Gallery Studios (184 Munro Street*)Exhibition Dates: Nov 12 – Dec 2, 2015Chris Harms’ artwork explores the relationship between our city’s constant state of construction and its citizens. Creating vibrant and elegant sculptures with plexiglass that resemble earth-moving excavators, Harms invites the viewer to enjoy the unique reflections, surfaces, and layering his works produce while considering the transformative time between what was and what is to come. Harnessing light and colour, Harms’ work is intended to build a feeling of expansion and possibility, and functions as an exploration of space and physicality through refined aesthetic sensibilities.Chris Harms is a self taught artist living and working in Toronto.*Project Gallery Studios is located at 184 Munro St, and accessible through the back entrance at the southeast corner of Blackburn St. and Mount Stephens St. The studio exhibition space is open for receptions and by appointment only.
