NEW BOOK
Open Road – Second Volume in the Series

"A new view toward nature seems to be on the minds of many contemporary artists. It is no wonder given the dire forecast predicted by leading scientists. Most recently Peter Doig exhibited a new suite of paintings at Michael Werner in New York. His works featured strange figures set in eerie landscapes and interiors. Katherine Bradford displayed a new series of paintings at Canada Gallery in NYC. Her show was titled, "Fear of Waves", and depicted divers and swimmers adrift at sea. At first glance, they might seem unlikely bedfellows for Adamson. Doig and Bradford create a kind of magic realism marked by decorative sensibilities and motifs featuring oceans and mountains. Doig got his start in Canada, Bradford in Maine. The three painters have something in common – a sort of homely, northern folk quality in their image making. Adamson has an affinity for rough-shod surfaces. Subtle nods to the natural world creep into each work. These aren't pretty paintings, but the sensation and atmosphere of the subject matter is palpable. "

About Art Gems
Art Gems celebrates its 9th anniversary with Art Gems '15, the annual fundraising art auction in support of Creative Works Studio. Since 2007, your generosity and support has enabled Art Gems to raise over $415,000 for this life-changing mental health outreach program in downtown Toronto. Together we are making positive change in the lives of the many Studio members, who, through this occupational therapy based program, experience healing, increased self-esteem and the return of important life skills through their participation in the arts.
