ROADSWORTH: GALLERY WORTHY

If in the past years, hunting down his art was always a gamble (even if you knew where to find it, you could never be certain the city hadn’t removed it already…) you can now be sure to find some of his work at Atelier Punkt, as he took over the space’s walls and floor and will, later on this week, extend this latest performance to the street, on the eastern and western sides of the building.

John Fox Retrospective at Klinkhoff

Chair of Concordia’s Painting Department,  Montreal artist John Fox, RCA, (1927-2008)  is honoured with retrospective at Klinkhoff Gallery. I love to visit a certain graceful brownstone building on Montreal’s Golden Mile. The Klinkhoff Gallery is an elegantly quiet space. Therein lies Canadian art from the 19, 20 and 21st centuries. Here you will find no art hanging from the walls or blaring videos.  For almost 60 years this prestigious gallery has advised private and corporate collectors in amassing fine art.  Celebrating a long tradition of hosting retrospectives, this fall the gallery will honour the legacy of John Fox, the renowned Montreal artist and much-loved teacher.  The exhibition will feature works from private collections, as well as paintings owned by Fox’s widow, art historian Sandra Paikowsky.

A BETTER WAY TO GIFT/SOUVENIR SHOP

Pluriels. As the name suggests, this is a show of many that is a Great opportunity to see Quebec artistic talents! Artist and artisans have gotten together for a group show in a space on trendy St. Laurent, locally known as The Main. They are from a craft collective called MAM (Métiers d’Arts Métissés ) What a great idea!  You can buy that perfect gift for now, for later…for the holidays.  Choose from ceramics, knit stuff, toys, paintings.  All works are pretty reasonable, and who knows, you might make a ‘discovery’  – sell it 10 years from now on ebay and make a huge profit!  The show is at Galerie Espace, a space that is rented out to artists. On until August 24, but there is lots of fun stuff left.
