Japan and Beyond presents a solo exhibition of works by Toronto based artist, Myra Evans. The artist integrates her own photographic images, along with digital technology and collage materials to create evocative and multi-layered paintings.

After a recent visit to Japan, Myra was inspired to share her love of the delicacy and beauty of the country’s art through her own artistic interpretations. Using her photographs, Washi papers, poster images from her travels through Japan and other countries, she hoped to inspire others to appreciate the beauty of this unique country. Myra hopes that viewers will take a journey through time to explore the extraordinary sensitivity and beauty of Japan and beyond.

Women’s Art Association of Canada – Ruth Upjohn Gallery

The Women’s Art Association of Canada (WAAC) is an organization founded in 1887 to promote and support women artists and craftswomen in Canada, including artists in the visual media, performance artists and writers. At one time, it had almost 1,000 members. Although smaller today, it still plays an active role in fund raising, encouraging and supporting Canadian women artists. The WAAC is a gallery where its members’ work can be exhibited and sales arranged throughout the year. Members fund raise through their art shows and auctions, book sales and concerts to support and provide scholarships to students at institutions such as OCAD, the National Ballet School, The Royal Conservatory of Music, Sheridan and George Brown Colleges.
