Gallery Space: Lines, Layers and Lectures

October 5th - This week in the Gallery Space:

2 Queen West openings tonight you can totally party-hop between:

At Loop Gallery (1174 Queen St W), a double feature with exhibits by members, Margaret Glew and Richard Mongiat. Traces by Glew features painted abstracts that incorporate other materials such as paper or metal and Mongiat's, Field Studies/Recent Paintings, also abstract in nature works with layers of lines, colour and shape. Show opening is tonight from 7-10pm and runs to October 29th.

As Tim mentioned earlier this week, Maryam Keyhani will be exhibiting exciting new works at Katharine Mulherin's Sideshow (1080 Queen St W). This one also opens tonight from 7-10pm. Show runs until October 19th.

On this month (until Oct 22) at the Allen Lambert Galleria-turned-Gallery in BCE Place (181 Bay St) is the annual World Press Photo exhibit. Open from 7am-10pm daily (including Sunday & holidays), this is a definite must-see.

What you may not have known is that there are actually a number of photojournalist lectures happening in conjunction with the event...

Tonight, Thursday, October 5th you can hear Canadian photojournalist and winner of this year's Photo of the Year, Finbarr O'Reilly, speak about his work for Reuters in Central Africa.
Lecture starts at 7:30pm at Ryerson U's Centre for Computing and Engineering, Theatre 103 (245 Church St).

I'm off to see the Louvre and Uffizi galleries in Europe as of this weekend so Carrie will also be bringing you the Gallery Space for the month of October.
