|My World Their World
Gallery Gevik is pleased to present My World Their World, an exhibition featuring paintings by three influential Indigenous women artists of succeeding generations: Daphne Odjig, Glenna Matoush, and Anong Migwans Beam. Juxtaposing three distinct styles, these works are not only a testament to the inner lives of each creator, they also give us a window into how the outside world - their world - imposes itself on the artist and is interpreted through their practice. For this special exhibition, we've gathered an outstanding selection of paintings and works on paper available to view from May 20 to June 8, 2022.
|The Making of Canadian Modernism
Gallery Gevik is pleased to present The Making of Canadian Modernism, an exclusive exhibition of paintings and drawings that traces how Lionel LeMoine Fitzgerald (1890-1956), Bertram Brooker (1888-1955), Kathleen Munn (1887-1974), and Lowrie Warrener (1900-1983) strove to shake the post impressionism of the Group of Seven in the first half of the twentieth century. Following a year of planning, we've gathered an outstanding selection of rare and little seen works from various private collections available to view from April 23 to May 14, 2022.
Vincent van Gogh wrote extensively in his diaries about his application of colour to canvas. In 1888 he predicted that, "the painter of the future will be a colourist the like of which has never yet been seen. But I’m sure I am right to think that it will come in a later generation, and it is up to us to do all we can to encourage it, without question or complaint.” This exhibition showcases the work of six contemporary Canadian artists whose paintings reveal each of their passions, preoccupations and beliefs about the powers of colour. Including Charles Robb, Graham Peacock, Ronald Boaks, Scott Plear, Cynthia Chapman and Karo Alexanian.
|Carl Beam: The New World
Gallery Gevik is pleased to present Carl Beam: The New World, a retrospective exhibition and the first in a commercial Toronto gallery in many years. Of Ojibwe heritage, Carl Migwans Beam (1943-2005) has exerted a strong influence on generations of Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists. His work survives as a milestone in the development of a unique and powerful voice within the context of the presence of Canada on the international art scene.
