About the Gallery
Gallery Gevik, located in Toronto's Yorkville, is devoted to exhibitions of established artists who represent Canadian art at its best. The gallery also maintains a growing collection of important historical works that can be viewed during regular hours or by appointment.
Phillip Gevik, director of Gallery Gevik, has been a driving force in the Canadian Art scene since the opening of his Don Mills gallery, Gallery Phillip, in 1976. Since its inception, he has been an avid supporter of Inuit art and has assembled an outstanding collection of graphics and sculpture.
As an art dealer, I am committed first and foremost to the promotion and fostering of exceptional Canadian talent. I am proud to exhibit work that avoids bowing to current commercial trends. It is a pleasure to share my passion for Canadian art with others; by helping people discover art that speaks to them, they nurture and hone their own passion. A collection should reflect one's character and testify to his or her individuality.
Phillip Gevik, Director
Gallery Gevik presents a variety of artists that range from high realism to lyrical abstraction. The single element that unifies the group is a commitment to quality and clarity of vision that happens to be geographically defined by the borders of Canada. Artists affiliated with the gallery are established names in the Canadian and International art scene.
A Commitment to the Future
The collecting of paintings, sculpture and prints is not usually a series of random acts. For most people acquiring a work of art is a thought process of aesthetic considerations. Although each piece of art is a statement by a given artist, an entire collection says much about the collector.
