S. Maria Brandt: Installation 50%

Saturday, 1 April 2023 - S. Maria Brandt’s approach in this body of work is cross-genre and includes environmental studies, food science, and a Canadian-specific understanding of biodome. The artist connects their own experiences with what is happening to the world outside: waste, climate change, economic disruption, poverty, hunger, migration, and survival. That 50% in at the back of a household's fridge is both the object and the subject of this work - it evokes discussion, some confusion, and perhaps an enduring edge of discomfort. 50% of any proceeds from sales of the work will go to Second Harvest to offset any waste created in making this artwork. - Cedar Ridge Park, 225 Confederation Dr, Scarborough, ON M1G 1B2, Canada - Event Details

Into the Wild; Toronto and the Territories

Thursday, 30 March 2023 - 2 person Landscape art show. In Piera’s work you will see that she seeks to capture the beauty and complexity of the cityscape. Whether it's a small patch of greenery amidst a sea of concrete or a tree-lined street that provides a brief respite from the noise and chaos of the city, she is drawn to the ways in which nature finds a way to exist and thrive even in the most urban of environments. Vivian’s work is characterized by a focus on colour, light and texture, as well as a strong attention to detail and a deep appreciation for the natural world. Her recent journey to the territories was an immense inspiration and so she presents these paintings as a declaration of her enchantment with Canada’s far north. - 35 Hazelton Ave, Toronto, ON M5R 2E3, Canada - Event Details
