Winged Canvas Gallery Art Show

January 5 - 28, 2018

Location: 185 Bullock Drive #1  map 

Winged Canvas Gallery Kicks off Group Show Season with January Art Show

Winged Canvas Gallery is Markham’s Art Hub, where local artists are connected to art enthusiasts, buyers, and fellow artists in the community. “Right now, people living in the suburbs have to make the trek down to Toronto if they want to buy or sell art. Winged Canvas wants to change this. We believe this movement will help spread artistic literacy and bring a cultural vibrancy to the York Region community”, says Fei Lu, curator and founder of the Winged Canvas Gallery.

Featuring the work of local artists Fadwa Attyah, Rob Hyland, and Patricia Roncone, the January Art Show displays natural landscapes and their ability to evoke feelings of tranquility and affirm the promise of new beginnings. Artist Patricia Roncone’s new series Quiet Meditation “Offers the viewer an opportunity to detach from a busy and hectic world. Every piece in this collection is to be used as a focal point for quiet contemplation and reflection.” After the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, Winged Canvas invites you to reflect and recharge, commencing the New Year artfully in a celebration of Markham’s local arts and culture scene.  Come by the Opening Reception to meet the artists and enjoy an evening of music, refreshments, and the joy of art!

The January Art Show is on for public viewing at the Winged Canvas Gallery between January 5 - 28, with an Opening Reception held Friday, January 5 (7 - 10 p.m.) and a no-HST Closing Sale on January 28, the last Sunday of the exhibition.

Winged Canvas is Markham’s Art Hub, and newest gallery, hosting art programs and parties, as well as a range of art services.
