Winter 2023


A stream of energetic pieces, art news and artful connections await you at the gallery.

This edition of Ingram Art News explores the new works and happenings of several vital artists surrounded in the process of art making, including David Michael Scott, Anja Karisik, Barry Hodgson and Travis Shilling. Further on, we look at what is to come in the year ahead with the release of the 2023 exhibition schedule, a focus on the gallery’s busy book shop and more.


This River - watercolour, 10.5 x 14 inches


David Michael Scott is an “artist’s artist” and has created exceptional new visions to add to an outstanding body of work. In This River, the watercolour mediates Toronto’s Queen Street Bridge in pigment made with water drawn from the Don River underneath. In magnificent combination of line and brushwork, the composition highlights the contemplative nature of the iconic public structure. 

Scott’s independent and dedicated approach to creation is often compared with the likes of Rachel Berman (1946-2014), working across mediums with a highly unified and humanistic worldview. From oil painting to linocut and watercolour, Scott brings the viewer inside of captivating realms with truth and openness, beneficence and humour, beauty and inquiry.


Bay Rhythm - oil on canvas, 48 x 36 inches

Anja Karisik’s canvas Bay Rhythm arrived at the gallery filled with light and expanding observation. The work culminates Karisik’s recent oil paintings from the shorelines of the Great Lakes watershed, an environment that has proven intriguing to the artist in the visual exercise of “treasure hunting” within the surface of the water.

“The paintings from this collection tell stories of local geologies - from the colourful gems of Lake Superior to the glacial age erratic boulders of Awenda and the granite outcrops of Georgian Bay.”

–Anja Karisik

Karisik paints by natural light only. This focus that exists throughout her creative process captures an immediacy and truth that is essential to her vision. The physical and philosophical combine into a single quality through the artist's direct translation of experience. 

Actively painting in studio, Karisik has embarked on a series that she refers to as “Transitions.” This new collection finds inspiration much closer to home – the riparian environments of the Humber River.

RACHEL BERMAN (1946-2014)

Upon the Room's Silence I will Sew a Button - oil on cradled maple, 35.5 x 46.5 inches

“any picture the artist makes, regardless of subject, will have evidence of self-portraiture within it…”

–David Michael Scott


House at Dusk - oil on board, 10.5 x 7.25 inches

Barry Hodgson has delivered consummate new works to the gallery, including additions to his intimate and insightful Garden Series. With an undiluted form of mark making, Hodgson guides the eye through his surroundings with an unending curiosity and rejuvenating line quality.

Travis Shilling’s recent paintings are testament to the sweeping energy of the artist’s irresistible skill and vision. Newly available watercolours from Sacred Sites are joined at the gallery by astonishing large-scale oils that are directly engaging to their viewer.


The Petrified Forest - oil on canvas, 48 x 72 inches

Wondrous and otherworldly, paintings like The Petrified Forest (above) hold a palpable sense of immediacy along with a sense of universal affinity. The works are flawlessly composed yet somehow spontaneous; sinuous and coiling, firmly anchored in time and place.

Please contact us regarding any artists, their works, or a range of interest for details and availability.

BARKER FAIRLEY, R.C.A. (1887-1986)

Yellow Sky (1962) - oil on masonite, 20 x 24 inches


Our exhibition schedule for 2023 has been announced on our website and there is much happening in the year ahead. The gallery is set to host solo exhibitions by artists Rachel Berman (1946-2014), Travis Shilling, John Doyle and Jonathan Castellino as well as our upcoming Ontario collection. Shaped by the works of two preeminent artists Caven Atkins (1907-2000) and Barker Fairley, O.C., R.C.A. (1887-1986), the exhibition opens March 2.

Please stay tuned to Ingram Art News for details and explorations of each exhibition and their collections.
