Steve Driscoll

Like his historical forefathers, the Group of Seven, Steve Driscoll heads to the forest for inspiration. But rather than re-enacting the plein air sketching method practiced by Canada’s archetypal landscape painters, Driscoll instead mentally banks the images he sees — lakes and trees, sunsets and sunrises, moons and stars, cabins and campfires — creating a storehouse of visual memories that he brings back to his Toronto studio.

Ryan Legassicke

Ryan Legassicke is a contemporary Canadian artist whose current work examines contemporary urban spaces and makes connections between our shared aesthetic experience and the idea that we are becoming progressively more disconnected from ourselves, each other, and the places that we inhabit. His work examines our relationship to urban spaces where histories are removed, intolerance is enforced, and people attempt to live in a paradoxical space that refuses unity, stability, wholeness and identity.

Janet Macpherson

Janet Macpherson began studying ceramics at Sheridan College in 1999. For six years she maintained a studio practice, making functional ceramics, participating in exhibitions, and selling her work at various Toronto galleries. In 2008 she began her MFA in ceramics at The Ohio State University where she explored a more figurative approach to ceramics. Her work investigates peculiar things that live on the edge of normal and incongruous things that exist side-by-side but yet not quite together.

Available Spaces
