Opening Reception: Thursday October 4, 5:30 - 9:30PM
Art Array is a collective of eight fine artists originating on the southern shore of Georgian Bay. From the wealth of talent in the region, the group emerged as a singularly top-quality entity. They launched their first group show at The Arts Centre in Collingwood, Ontario in 2010 to excellent reviews.
By request of the Arts Centre, Art Array created an entirely new show for the month of August 2011. Success followed quickly with an invitation to show at Art Square in Toronto.
The group comprises glass artist Eleanor Brownridge; painters Miro Omes, Ellie Lagrandeur, Louis Davies, Janie Grice and Dar West; and photographic artists Lenore Burton and Bryan Davies. Each artist is steeped in a unique genre, giving Art Array a wide appeal among art lovers.
Today, Art Array’s base has expanded to Toronto, Oakville and Sudbury, and even to the U.S., where an ambitious exhibition is planned for 2013.
Art Array at Arta Gallery
Arta Gallery presents the eight artists of Art Array in a group show the first two weeks of October. Paintings, photographic images and glass works comprise the enchanting display. One will see echoes of the group’s Georgian Bay origins, but beyond that, the group’s influences include world travels, First Nations culture, and expressionistic modalities.
