Exhibition continues until February 27th.
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.

From the press release:
Singer questions that notion of emptiness by revealing subtle, living landscapes of quirky buildings and ordinary people going about their business. Every funny sign, open door, and child on a bicycle has unique significance in the life of the town. Against those backdrops of weather and space, Singer weaves gentle stories about small-town life and the meaning of home.
