PATEL BROWN GALLERY | 21 WADE AVE

Gallery talk with Maria Hupfield and Shary Boyle Sept 24, 2-3pm, register at Patel Brown Gallery.

The artworks in this exhibition were made or revisited in Toronto during our pandemic lockdown, a time of sadness and alienation for many of us. We were afraid, lonely, cut-off. Divided inside. Yearning for our roots and connections, the forest became a chair. Apartments became tents. Survival is passed down and remembered, thrown forward into the future.Magic is afoot! In a felt slipper. Call home, commune with your mom. Claim your voice from the soft body of an instrument. Ask the children to tell you what they’ve learned, write it down, cut it out and sew it on a rainbow.

-Excerpt from exhibition text by Shary Boyle
