Greg Curnoe's "Three Pieces" is a Featured Project at Art Toronto from October 24 - 27, 2014. 


This will be the first time this monumental free-standing painting will be seen outside of Curnoe's studio and our gallery.

Three Pieces was discovered by the Michael Gibson Gallery in October 2013 in storage during a studio visit. What was revealed when the three 4’ x 6’ intensely coloured paintings were re-assembled was a monumental billboard-sized triptych painted in 1965.

In researching this relatively unknown work, the gallery contacted many of Curnoe’s contemporaries, but very few knew of Three Pieces.

On Saturday, September 27 from 2-4pm we shared some of Greg Curnoe's vast personal book collection with the public. In exchange for one free Greg Curnoe book, we asked that each person write a cherished memory of Greg Curnoe. The memories consisted of stories about Greg, a meaningful question, a description of how his work was inspirational and poems about Greg.

Sheila Curnoe generously gave us a selection of Greg's books for this exchange.  The books, like Greg's interests, are extremely diverse; there are books about poetry, military history, politics, comics, literature, wine, local history, and sports. Each book bears Greg's signature and date of acquisition.

Each personal memory was recorded in a scrap book along with the book title, author and inscription....

We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Canadian sculptor Walter Redinger. 

There will be a memorial service on Saturday, July 19 at the West Lorne Chapel of Denning Funeral Directors, 202 Main Street, West Lorne.  Visitation from 12-2pm.  Service at 2pm.


One of six children of a tobacco farmer, Walter Redinger spent all but a few years of his life within miles of where he was born in 1940 in Wallacetown, in South Western Ontario. Walter spent a good deal of time exploring the rocky shores of Lake Erie, helping out on the tobacco farm and drawing with his friend and sculptor, Ed Zelenak. 

At 17, he spent a year studying commercial art at Beal Technical College in London, Ontario. With no formal training in sculpture under his belt, he began to make sculpture...
