An exhibition in celebration of Otto Rogers’ 80th year and his influence on contemporary abstract painting into the 21st century. Born in rural Saskatchewan in 1935 and now living in Prince Edward County, Ontario, Rogers has been exhibiting actively since the 1950s. Central to his practice is the notion that art can present “motion and stillness simultaneously” and that opposing elements of a painting need to be worked into “an order that will sustain them as a whole and pure thing”. He has kept in motion the idea that making art can be a spiritual endeavour and the results sublime.

WHEN: Opening reception, Thursday, December 3, 5-8pm, exhibition continues through January 23rd, 2016.
Chaki was born in Athens, Greece, in 1938 and has been living in Montreal since 1963. His paintings retain the lushness of warmer climates and possess a vocabulary that speaks truthfully about the landscape as he sees it, whether it is in his mind or before his eyes.
Chaki’s work can be found in numerous public collections and institutions internationally, including Canadian embassies and consulates, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Royal Bank of Canada Collection, Musée de Toulon, France, and Jerusalem City Hall, Israel, among others. Chaki was head of the Painting and Drawing programs at the Saidye Bronfman Centre from 1967-1989.
