60 Painters Exhibition
A landmark exhibition of contemporary
We are pleased to invite you to 60 Painters, a landmark exhibition of contemporary Canadian painting curated by Scott Sawtell. 60 Painters showcases the work of established and emerging contemporary painters who have strong connections to Toronto and whose practices reflect our society's present-day concerns and possibilities.
Presented in partnership with Humber College and Lakeshore Arts, 60 Painters will be on view from May 18 to June 9, 2012 at the Humber Arts and Media Studios. The exhibition will include public symposiums, educational tours for secondary and post-secondary students, and a full-color catalogue to be published in the fall of 2012 with the support of the RBC Foundation. Information on all of the participating artists is available on our website, www.60painters.com.
The opening reception will take place on Saturday, May 19, 2012 from 12:00 to 5:00pm.
