Rachel MacFarlane: Bayou, Sea and Canyon

Nicholas Metivier Gallery 190 Richmond St E, Toronto

Rachel MacFarlane’s paintings defy a single genre, encompassing elements of sculpture, abstraction, and landscape. During her travels, MacFarlane recorded her impressions of the places she encountered including their distinctive qualities of light, dramatic weather, and native vegetation. She then edited and compressed the landscapes into their most essential and dramatic features. Bayou, Sea and Canyon, presents new colourful and dynamic paintings based on her explorations of these epic landscapes.

Ned Pratt: Burin to Fogo Island

Nicholas Metivier Gallery 190 Richmond St E, Toronto

Ned Pratt has lived in Newfoundland for almost his entire life. Its architecture and landscape are firmly ingrained in him as well as his artistic practice. Despite this deep connection, his work exists without sentimentality. He relies on the ocean, human-made structures, and rugged terrain for formal considerations only, similarly to how a painter might look at a still life.

Shannon Weston: African Identities

Gardiner Museum 111 Queen's Park, Toronto

Gordon Shadrach: Trade

United Contemporary 1444 Dupont Street in Unit 22, Toronto

This dynamic new body of work explores the legacy of Black Loyalists, and confronts the past with present through contemporary cultural references. This highly anticipated exhibition will consist of a series of painted works, and textile installations which will include found historical objects. The artist utilizes vintage farming sacks and other textiles to underpin the convergence of historical oppression, systemic racism, and contemporary sports.
