Art on Queen West Today

 Bill and I and our friend Shelley Savor went to look at some art on Queen West today.
We had a relaxed lunch at The Beaver, then hit the Michael Harrington show at Mulherin.
A new body of work from this year. 
 We're big Harrington fans. Winter no. 1, oil on canvas, 24 x 48 inches
 Winter no. 1 (detail) 
Nice depth in Meeting the Cowboy no 1, 9 x 12 inches.
 Mulherin tried to sell Bill the picture below after he told her how much he wanted it.
Red Man Wading in Water, oil on canvas, 8 x 10 inches
 In her other gallery Mulherin and Penelope Smart were showing great art by Sarah Burwash including these clay works.
We walked past the Starbucks.
Paul Petro is showing new paintings by Carol Wainio, also painted this year. Weather Events, acrylic on canvas, 78 x 120 inches.
 Bill and Shelley and I found her work very inspiring. Les Cailloux Blancs, 72 x 120 inches.
One Evening, 60 x 120 inches
 One Evening (details)
One last nice Wainio.
 We carried on along Queen Street to MOCCA
  and a installation of Vera Frenkel. Here's Shelley and Bill watching Frenkel's Once Near Water: Notes from the Scaffolding Archive, 2008.
By now we were close to Type Books so had to go in and see what was new. I liked this Steven Klein portrait of Colton Hanes in VMAN magazine.
 It had been a dark, damp afternoon but we had one inspiration after another.
How we love our Queen Street West!


  1. I toured a Paradise City Fair in Marlborough, MA and viewed of some lovely arts/photos and artisan jewelry. Similarly to your visit to this museum and viewing of some fine arts. At times too coincidental is all. I am not sure what to make of such. I should not look at your post perhaps. Oh, well, I am always the one looking for meaning as my former co-worker Cynthia would say. Take care.
