Portraits of Famous Canadians on Show
Portraits of famous Canadians in a variety of styles and media will be featured when the Portrait Society of Canada presents The Circle of Art: Portraits of Famous Canadians. The fine art exhibition of contemporary portraits will be on display June 12-July 1 at the Arta Gallery, 14 Distillery Lane in Toronto’s Distillery Historic District.
An opening reception takes place Thursday, June 13, 6-8 p.m. The exhibition concludes with a Canada Day celebration on Monday, July 1, 4-6 p.m. Both are open to the public at no charge.
Gallery hours are Monday-Friday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Saturdays, 10 a.m.-7 p.m.; and Sundays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
Most of the portraits are available for sale.
The Portrait Society of Canada’s 12th anniversary exhibition features works by professional portraitists from across Canada. There will be 30 fine art portraits created for the exhibition, including some of Canada’s finest portrait artists – Jean Miller Harding, Ava Murray Peters, Daniel Colby, Judith Elsasser, Martha Southwell, Sybiline, Ilona Biernot, Deborah Pearce, Steven Rosati, and Veronica Kvassetskaia-Tsyglan.
Among the portrait subjects are Dorothy Wetherald Rungeling, Canada’s first woman pilot (by Martha Southwell), Quebec storyteller and musician Fred Pellerin (by Sybiline), dance star Chan Hon Goh and writer Elaine Chin (by Jean Miller Harding), filmmaker Christopher Chapman (by Daniel Colby), violinist Paul McNaughton and choreographer David Earle (by Judith Elsasser), visual artist Tom Philips and singer Paris Black (by Ava Murray Peters), composer Alexina Louie (by Ilona Biernot); pianist Brahm Goldhamer, soprano Galina Lukomsky and Toronto Arts Council Director and CEO Claire Hopkinson (Veronica Kvassetskaia-Tsyglan).
Artists and most of the celebrities will be in attendance for both the opening reception and Canada Day celebration.
Veronica Kvassetskaia-Tsyglan, founder of the Portrait Society of Canada, observes: “Portraits matter. They are a record of people at our time in history – who we are and the way we live. But the likeness of individuals is also art, creating invaluable assets for the future.
“Schopenhauer once said about portraits, ‘Stand quietly before them and wait till they speak to us.’ In our exhibition, the portraits wait at the Arta Gallery for us to come and stand before them, and they will speak to us unforgettably. We are delighted to share our artists’ journey with the Canadian people.”
The Portrait Society of Canada is proud to present a unique book.
