Festive Reception: December 11, 2014 / 6 – 10 p.m.
Nearly 850 artworks by over 100 artists currently hang on the walls of Queen Street East’s Project Gallery. The Deck the Walls exhibition features a salon style arrangement showcasing works of different sizes, mediums, subjects, and style. With works of art spanning from floor to ceiling on nearly every one of Project Gallery’s walls there is certainly a lot to take in.
Watercolorist Vera Bobson, one of the showing artists, had nine works hanging around gallery. Bobson commended the salon style showing, as it allowed her to experiment with smaller scaled paintings. It is surprisingly easy to both spot works, like Bobson’s, and get simultaneously lost in the myriad of worlds depicted by the Deck the Walls artists.
The exhibition runs until New Year’s Eve, and is definitely worth a visit, if not two.
