There is much happening now and ahead at the gallery so be sure to visit our historic brownstone often for art, conversation, and connection.

In this edition of Ingram Art News, we look at the arrival of Anja Karisik’s Surfacing as well as Jane Everett’s newest Indigo Bay series. Further on, we welcome acclaimed painter Vlad Grospic to the gallery’s representation and explore the artist’s captivating visions. We then take a sneak peek at the magnificent ceramic works by sculptor Luke Pestl and new oils from the studio of Travis Shilling.

Please read on and contact us for a catalogue of works by any artists below including full details and pricing.


Quaaout I (when the sun’s rays first hit the water) - oil on canvas, 48 x 60 inches


Indigo Bay series

Paintings from Jane Everett’s lush Indigo Bay series have arrived at the gallery. Each piece in the collection presents intriguing renderings of life through the looking glass in glorious and musical expression.

Everett’s revered mixture of abstraction and realist settings create multidimensional images of their subject-matter, and the light-drenched works of Indigo Bay testify to the strength of this approach.

Composition plays a subtle yet key factor in the expansiveness of the paintings, allowing the artist to guide the viewer’s eye through vivid depictions of life in a variety of scales. 

Please contact the gallery for a catalogue of Everett’s Indigo Bay collection with full details.


Surfacing series


Interlace (Kolapore Uplands, near Collingwood ON) - oil on canvas, 30 x 48 inches

Open air and gestural freedom intermingle in Anja Karisik’s newest series of paintings, Surfacing

Drawing inspiration from Collingwood and Tiny Township near Georgian Bay, the collection of oils exemplify the artist’s intrepid vision and compositional style.

Karisik brings life and kinetic movement to her subjects in a variety of manners in the pieces, at times employing unconventional tools and approaches. In paintings like Interlace and Lifelines, the artist whips string dipped in oils to the canvas, revealing swaying grasses along the towering reflections of trees.

Please contact us for a catalogue of works in Karisik’s Surfacing series with full details including availability and pricing.


Lifelines (Kolapore Uplands, near Collingwood ON) - oil on canvas, 30 x 40 inches


Ingram Gallery welcomes the exceptional painter Vlad Grospic to our artist representation. A master of paint and materials, Grospic’s art stands outside of time and at the forefront of contemporary art making. Working intently in studio over the past few years, the artist has created a series of exceptional pieces that set their walls aglow and are newly available at the gallery.


Girl in Green - oil on panel, 20 x 16 inches

Grospic’s portrait works fuse classical consciousness and technique with the energy of the modern and hypermodern. The electrifying paintings offer portals into lucid worlds filled with life, humanity, and sartorial lusciousness.

“I hope to create a more visceral experience for the viewer rather than relying on the image alone.” 

– Vlad Grospic


Woman with Her Eyes Closed

oil on canvas, 24 x 20 inches


Self Portrait

oil & encaustic on canvas, 20 x 16 inches

The artist’s larger-scale and enveloping Landscapes and Nature Morte series exist at the crest of contemporary oil painting. From mountain ranges and seascapes to the remnants of tree trunks, the works bring their viewer into staggering visions of our world through exquisite decision making.

Please contact the gallery for a catalogue of works by Vlad Grospic with full pricing and details.


The Tide - oil & encaustic on canvas, 60 x 60 inches


Both classical and modern, the first ceramic sculptures of Luke Pestl have arrived at the gallery. The tactile and sumptuous works of this multi-talented artist lean on the timeless function of the kiln as much as they invoke the art of graffiti. Pestl is currently in studio on the coast of Nova Scotia with a variety of new pieces to follow at the gallery in September.


After an astounding year in art and the acclaimed solo exhibition The Blue Tarp, Travis Shilling has recently delivered a series of newly completed canvases from studio. The intimate works are smaller in scale yet filled with the artist’s vision and iconic painterly style. Be sure to see these new pieces in person.


The Fisherman - oil on canvas, 36 x 36 inches

We look forward to your next visit and sharing in the enjoyment of all things art! Please stay tuned to Ingram Art News for updates on the above as well as for what is ahead at the gallery.
