BOUNDLESS – Art Exhibition – Twist Gallery – August 3 – September 30

BOUNDLESS: August 3rd - September 30

The “BOUNDLESS” art exhibition (August 3 – September 30 – Twist Gallery) features a selection of pieces that investigate the fundamental nature of things. Others may be more realistic, showcasing the distinctive characteristics of their themes, while some of the works may be abstract, forcing the observer to consider the immaterial components of existence.

Curated by Michael Adamson, Reception is a public group exhibition of paintings, “the initial idea for the RECEPTION exhibition was inspired by the work I was seeing these artists doing online over the last few years. I was particularity interested with the idea of time and place”. This show presents a cross section of Canadian painters working in the present. There was a concerted effort to include painters who are concerned with a personal journey into the varied aesthetics and rich history of painting in Canada.
