INGRAM GALLERY | December 2018

This December is filled with new art and updates as we move toward the beginning of a new year.  In rounding out 2018, visiting the gallery is a must.  With many new works and the complete exhibition schedule for 2019 shaped - popping in will ensure you have the full snapshot of what is happening at your gallery.  In this issue, we have news for you on both contemporary and historical works, as well as what to expect in the year ahead. 

TRAVIS SHILLING, Palm Tree (2018) 30 x 36 inches, oil on canvas


This month has brought a dazzling collection of new works to the gallery.  Awe-inspiring canvases have arrived from the studio of Ryan Dineen, touching on the forgotten artifacts of the wreck yard to the majesty of the landscape.  Toni Hamel's new works also continue to amaze and draw fervent admiration around the world with her cognitive spin and views on social phenomena.

Travis Shilling has likewise produced a number of insightful works from studio that draw a great deal of interest.  After an extraordinary year in his artistic career, Shilling's inimitable brushwork and subject matter only appears to progress further and receive greater acclaim.  Sean Yelland has also introduced four new oils to the gallery that continually advance his canonical body of work.  Yelland's methodical and witty visions offer us a reality where logic and irony exist in a single space.

SEAN YELLAND, The Dance (2018) 39.25 x 32 inches, oil on canvas

The addition of historical works from several artists have drawn further attention to the gallery in recent weeks, particularly those by Frances Gage, Nicholas Hornyansky, and Frederick Simpson Coburn (below).  After last year's notable exhibition, we re-visit Artful Greetings in the Collectors' Den this month, where we present a newly available collection of greeting cards from the 1931 - Painters of Canada Series.

FRANCES GAGE, R.C.A. (1924-2017) &

The inclusion of Frances Gage (1924-2017) to our historical artists has brought numerous people to the gallery over the past month to appreciate her affecting and thoughtful pieces.  A masterful sculptor, Gage's work offers endearing and inspiring depictions of her subjects.  Her large-scale bronze Rosamond (1968) installed in front of 50 Prince Arthur Avenue remains a Toronto landmark and an enduring talking point among gallery visitors.

Works by Nicholas Hornyansky (1896-1965) have also been receiving considerable admiration as we showcase a salon wall of the artist's renowned printmaking.  Hornyansky's technical mastery is a common talking point with his use of the aquatint, a technique that involves carefully placing a coloured resin powder on an intaglio plate before transferring the image to paper.  His works are a treasured favourite to all of us at the gallery and we invite you to share in appreciation.


SEAN YELLAND, Flying Solo (2018) 36 x 60 inches, oil on canvas

As December sees all of us out and about in the city, be sure to visit the gallery to experience the new works on offer.  The gallery is your home away from home, and we invite you to stay warm with a book in The Book Shop, linger long throughout, and join us in our continued celebration of art-making in Canada.

With warm wishes,
