Nicole began painting in 2014. Her bold use of colour creates rich and almost surreal landscapes, where she draws inspiration from her experiences travelling, as well as from her varied background in upholstery, costume design, ceramics and jewelrymaking.

Opening Reception: June 16 from 6-9pm
For 10 years a group of women from the Hillcrest neighbourhood have been gathering to show their art work rendered in fibre; cloth, felt, thread and paper. Fibre, in all its forms, is a medium familiar to women since the dawn of civilization. That we use it to make art is completely natural.
We each have different styles and are influenced by different experiences but the use of fibre connects us. So we are gathering to share our work, among each other and with the neighbourhood. Through our exhibits, which we hold annually, we hope to bring awareness and interest to the medium of fibre and textiles.

The Art of Light and Shadow is a project funded by the Ontario Arts Council’s Aboriginal Artist in Schools program. The Group Exhibition features Black and White Photography from students at First Nations School of Toronto who participated in the 16 week course in 35mm Black and White Photography with instructor Ryan Walsh.
Paul Peregal attended the School of Art and Design at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts under the directorship of the founding member, Arthur Lismer of the Group of Seven. Lismer was Peregal’s colour theory instructor. The artist also studied at Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Montreal and The Art Students League in New York. The artist has travelled and resided in the United States, Canada, England, Denmark, Israel and France. His work figures prominently in collections throughout the world.
Chamber music and jazz are an integral part of Peregal’s painting process and have been a significant influence on his work. His roughened and melted portraits are strikingly disarming with an uncanny grasp of the vital essence ticking away deep within the subject’s dissembled psyche. Landscapes, too, cannot remain a static recollection. Hills and houses throb and twist, bob and weave a tortuous humming existence. These, as with all of Peregal’s works, are bold and vital statements celebrating a timeless humanity in the poetry of colour and form.
