Current & Upcoming This Year
PhotoNOLA 2021 - November 2020 - March 2021 Healing Arts Center. New Orleans, LA
Now, in the age of pandemics it is more evident than ever how we are dramatically interconnected, interdependent and just one part of the vast ecology of the earth, the web of life. The web of life as an illustration of the totality of the relationships of the earth’s systems explains for us how the whole is greater than the sum of its parts; more powerful, more vital – complete. As a beautiful cut glass vase is much more than particles of sand, soda and lime, we, humanity are much more than one person, one community, one nation.
The flags will be taken to New Orleans to the Healing Arts Center for an exhibition beginning in December for PhotoNOLA until the end of Mardi Gras 2021.

City of Dreams - January 20 - 31 2021 Gallery 1313 (online) Toronto
City of Dreams
This is a group exhibition of works curated online as artists explore their urban environment and share with us the influences of our city on us. During the pandemic we have restrictions but our cities continue to grow and develop and we become even more aware of the structures around us as we take long walks exploring our neighborhoods. At night we dream of getting our cities back to some kind of normal where we can dine, go to theatre and have dinner with friends. Some local businesses have become casualties of the pandemic closing never to return. This group exhibit curated by Phil Anderson, Director @ Gallery 1313 explores an eclectic range of art and diverse interpretations of our urban experience.

A Long Journey
Walk into the sea: face and embrace the turmoil of your own thoughts, constraints, and beliefs. Swim through the memories, sorrows, and joys. Float on the ideas, rumours, and hopes. Sail into the stars.
A Certain Kind Of Blue - March 2021 Analog Forever Magazine (online)
A Certain Kind of Blue
Analog Forever Magazine is pleased to showcase 81 images in this month’s online exhibition, entitled “A Certain Kind of Blue.” Curated by photographic artist and Assistant Professor in Photography at the University of Tampa, Jaime Aelavanthara, these cyanotype process photographs showcase the diverse range of expressive possibilities within this celebrated historic method. While the cyanotype process is hailed for its simplicity, it is also extraordinarily complex. The selected photographers collaged, toned, stitched, assembled with this process to create both two-dimensional and three-dimensional photographs that push creative boundaries to enhance the emotional quality of their art.

Art Builds - June 23- July 25 2021 Gallery 1313
This exhibition lets artists explore architecture and development. As our cities grow we see ourselves surround by the sights and sounds of construction. Housing and living in the city become expensive and the pandemic forces people to live in tents in city parks. Some artists have a fantasy about architecture and design which shows up in their work. Architects also become artists and their art reflects their work. Parkdale is a fusion of architectural styles. The Gallery itself is housed in an art deco building from 1931.
