I will also be exhibiting at Galerie BAC in Montreal in the exhibition "7 Toronto Painters". 

Please join us for the opening reception on September 25th at 5pm. 

The exhibition puts together works by 2 Galerie BAC artists, Matthew Schofield and Mark Stebbins, as well as invited artists Matt Bahen, Erin Loree, Christopher Knights, Linda Martinello and Shannon Partridge.

As the title indicates, the exhibition brings together works by 7 Toronto-based emerging and mid-career artists. The styles presented are eclectic, ranging from abstract to figurative works, and are made up of a variety of techniques such as painting, mixed media and collage. Together, these artworks illustrate particular issues in practice in contemporary art in Toronto, as echoed elsewhere in the country. With this exhibition, Galerie BAC is the first to introduce the work of these Toronto artists, most of whom are unknown by Montrealers.
