City captured in paintings|
| || ||
A Brush with Toronto, Paintings by Dorothy Mould and Vernon Mould opens at the
Market Gallery on August 9 and runs through to October 12.
The city has been a strong and recurrent theme in the paintings of these
Toronto artists for decades. A Brush with Toronto represents a broad
cross-section of their work. Over 50 paintings and drawings illustrate how
Dorothy Mould and Vernon Mould see their community and how a changing cityscape
is permanently captured in their brush strokes.
Vernon Mould's paintings from the 50s and 60s show landmark buildings that
withstood the test of time, while others, like the TTC Building, Front and
Yonge, (1955) were lost. Paintings, such as Flat Iron Building by Dorothy Mould
and St. Lawrence Hall by Vernon Mould illustrate the architectural heritage of
the city. The artists' work also captures midtown Toronto, where small shops
and businesses thrive amongst homes and neighbourhoods.
Meet the artists at a reception on September 6, from 1 to 3 p.m. Light
refreshments will be served. Please RSVP to 416-392-7604.
Admission is free to the Market Gallery on the second floor of the South St.
Lawrence Market, 95 Front Street East. Gallery hours are Wednesday through
Friday between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday
from noon to 4 p.m.
The Market Gallery offers changing exhibitions dedicated to Toronto's history,
art and culture as well as educational programs for school groups and adults.
Located inside the South St. Lawrence Market, in Toronto's oldest
neighbourhood, the main gallery occupies the 19th century city council chamber
which is all that remains from the City Hall that stood on this site from 1845
