Toronto art events. Andre Petterson at Bau-xi Gallery. September 13-27 2014. Here There and Other Places.
Toronto art events. Opening reception at Bau-Xi Toronto Saturday September 13th, 2-4pm.
Bau-Xi Gallery will be exhibiting new work by internationally recognized Vancouver based artist, Andre Petterson. As a painter, sculptor, photographer and musician, Petterson draws on his varied talents to create the stunning mixed-media panels shown in this exhibition.
Signature imagery from Petterson’s oeuvre, such as pianos and typewriters, will re-appear in this exhibition, along with striking compositions with zebras and elephants, inspired from recent travels to South Africa. These images are representations of past and present; stillness and movement; push and pull – themes that continue to emerge throughout Andre Petterson’s impressive career.
Toronto art events. Enjoy your day Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you. Summer is exciting!
**Bau-Xi Gallery opened in 1965 in Vancouver, BC to create a showcase for the many emerging and established Canadian artists in need of a gallery on the West Coast. BAU-XI (boe she) translates to “great gift”. Bau-Xi Gallery remains the oldest contemporary gallery in Vancouver.
The Gallery has been a member of the Art Dealers Association of Canada since the early 1970s, and in Vancouver, a founding member of the South Granville Gallery Association. Over the years, the iconic Vancouver gallery has expanded to include Foster/White Gallery in Seattle, Bau-Xi Gallery in Toronto, and Bau-Xi Photo, which is one of the few strictly photography galleries in Toronto.
