Gallery Space: Long Distance and Design

This week in the Gallery Space:

In Between: Long Distance Relationships (pictured above) opens at Gallery TPW (80 Spadina Ave, #310) this Saturday, June 17th from 2-4pm. The exhibit features several Southeastern European artists and their ideas on the global and the local, changing economic and cultural systems, and the search for identity in times of transition. Varied media. Runs to July 15th.

Also on Saturday, Diaz Contemporary (100 Niagara St) presents Toronto-based artist Alexander Irving. The exhibit, Political Science: new paintings and drawings, features a series of works that reflect on the "daily influx of information on political upheaval, global strife, and more mundance aspects of being". How so? Well, combining imagery from the likes of everything from cartoons to cubism. Should be interesting. Irving will be in attendance at the opening on June 17th from 2-5pm.

Currently underway is 51 Things, a display of 20th century design. Preview the exhibit at the 51 Things website and see it in person at Phurniture Inc, 1020 Dupont St.

And in slightly indirect gallery news, Visual Arts Ontario has re-launched their website. This is a great resource for artists looking to exhibit their work.
