Anna Valdez on The Creators Project

Anna Valdez - Orchids
We are happy to have just received new paintings by Anna Valdez in the gallery. Valdez was recently featured in an article on The Creators Project by Giaco Furino - a great read on the artists' inspiration and process.

"For many artists, the studio serves as a sacred space. It’s a place that should be calming and inspiring, able to serve as a getaway to creativity and a place of work. In the paintings of Anna Valdez, the studio is at once the subject being painted and the setting of the painting. Her colorful works are packed with plants, fabric, and other paintings. In her newest series, Still Life, the Oakland, California-based artist focuses on the houseplant as a source of inspiration, and even thinks of the plant, with it’s slow movement and reaction to the seasons, as a slow-moving subject..."

Douglas Walker: Solo Exhibition Oct 13 - Nov 6

DOUGLAS WALKER: NEW WORKS

OCTOBER 13 - NOVEMBER 6
OPENING: FRIDAY OCTOBER 14, 7-9PM

'New Works’ is Douglas Walker’s first solo exhibition at Parts Gallery. This series of paintings was made to reflect a personal ethos "to depict not the thing but its essence."

Douglas Walker was born in 1958 in Brockville, Ontario. He rose to prominence in the Toronto art world of the 1980s and is included in 'Tributes and Tributaries,' the AGO’s survey show of that period. He recently toured ‘Other Worlds’; an exhibition of large paper paintings that was shown at six museums across Canada. In 2015, he completed two large blue and white glass tile murals for the City of Markham. He has also exhibited at the ICA in London, in New York at the DIA Art Foundation, and the 49th Parallel. In Toronto he has shown at the AGO, the PowerPlant, the Art Gallery at Harbourfront, MOCCA, YYZ and Mercer Union. Canadian exhibition venues include the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, the Winnipeg Art Gallery, and the Dunlop Art Gallery. Walker was the focus of a travelling mid-career retrospective, curated by The Mendel Art gallery, and an overview of his career was featured at the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery. Many of the above exhibitions were accompanied by a catalog. He has received awards from the Toronto Arts Council, the Ontario Arts Council and the Canada Council. Douglas lives and works in Toronto. 

Please join us for an  opening reception with the artist present on Friday October 14th from 7-9PM.
