Born in Beirut in 1925, Etel Adnan is a painter, essayist, and poet. Since the 1960s, she has been known for her influential writing, particularly the award-winning 1978 novel Sitt Marie Rose. In recent years, Adnan's work as a visual artist has been the subject of increased attention, with her astute use of colour and compelling semi-abstract forms being taken up widely. For her first solo exhibition in Canada, Adnan will present a series of recent works at Oakville Galleries in Gairloch Gardens, including a selection of paintings, alongside prints, leporelli, tapestries, and film. Read together, these works demonstrate the rich breadth of this extraordinary artist's practice and her career-long meditation on landscapes and the natural world.

Upcoming tours:
Saturday 4 February 2017, 2:00 pm
Saturday 4 March 2017, 2:00 pm

Charting the significant influence of Irish-Canadian-American artist Les Levine, this exhibition brings together a selection of works made adjacent to the multimedia artist's time in Toronto, from the mid-1960s to the early 1970s. Guest-curated by Sarah Robayo Sheridan, this project will feature works in sound, sculpture, painting, and other media, exemplifying what a key creative actor Levine was and measuring his prescient innovations against what are now highly relevant contemporary art preoccupations such as institutional critique, the adaptation of new technologies in the creative process and environmental artworks.

This project is made possible in part by the Government of Canada.

Upcoming tours:
Thursday 26 January 2017, 7:00 pm
Thursday 23 February 2017, 7:00 pm
