Reception | Painting | Exhibition

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.
