Local gallery showcases diverse group of artists

The Winged Canvas Gallery debuts the Winged Canvas Collective.

The Collective is made up of a diverse group of local artists, as well as GTA-based artists. Each artist has a distinct style and specialty. From whimsical illustrations to classic Canadian landscapes, this exhibit is an expansive look at the talent of the Collective.

One of the featured artists, Genie Kim, is a new member of the Collective who creates quirky and playful illustrations through her square “Esquissies” (sketches) as well as ceramic sculptures. Her artwork captures the heart with motifs of home, mother nature and healing.

This exhibition will feature work by Cindy Fan, who is also new to the Collective. Fan is a graduate of  the Ontario College of Art and Design University (OCAD U) and recently started teaching at Winged Canvas Gallery. Her illustrations of fantasy and fictional worlds are full of intricate and lush detail. You must see them in person to discover the complex narratives she tells within each of her creations.

The artwork by Winged Canvas Gallery students will be on display for the length of the Winged Canvas Collective exhibit and the People’s Choice winner will be announced on June 25.
