In a world where the dichotomy of black and white causes apprehension, All of the greys shifts our attention to the changing and multifaceted meanings that exist while Price's decisive line quality absorbs everything around it. The collection radiates on the gallery's walls, with each piece commanding individual attention through Price's intuitive hand. All of the titles end in question marks, pressing for greater inquiry into everything we see around us.

"Up to this point I've been working in a very intentionally unintentional way."
- Ryan Price
The artist has included a work of poesy in memory of Phil Stretten that will be included in the exhibition with the subtitle "(things realized and rediscovered while drawing these works, and since)."
Ryan Price lives and works in Guelph, Ontario. Born in 1972, his artistic career has seen successive accomplishments with numerous solo and group exhibitions, including public exhibitions at the The Macdonald Stewart Art Centre and most recently at the Elora Centre for the Arts. All of the greys is Price's sixth solo exhibition with the gallery. His collaborative work with other artists is extensive, with his unique vision appearing on the covers of many albums and works of literature. Notably, in 2006 Price re-illustrated Edgar Allan Poe's The Raven with his masterful drypoint engravings.

New Works + The Rome Workshops
Mind's eye I, II and II (2019) mixed media on board
has delivered a number of extraordinary works to the gallery that are fresh from studio and mark an impressive moment in his career. These pieces investigate memory itself, calling on forcible images from his childhood days spent in Kenya, East Africa. Recollections of figures and hands are assembled and delicately rendered within sparse and amorphous settings while offering testament to the artist's immense vision. The act of calling back memories from various parts of the mind happens simultaneously with
seamless use of a wide range of media, at times creating the images from charcoal, plaster, conté, and pastel.
BEYOND THE GALLERY WALLS
This summer, Hughes will be leading a workshop in Rome, Italy on Contemporary Figure Drawing for The Rome Workshops.
