Opening night: PUNKtures - Geezer punkers show there is no age limit to punk

A group of self-described “geezer punkers” are proving you’re never too old for PUNK! On Wednesday, October 7th at 7p.m. at the Steam Whistle Gallery ( 255 Bremner Blvd), see what 20+ years in the scene creates with “PUNKtures”, an art show featuring 12 artists over the age of 40 who refuse to act their age. Opening reception is free to attend and will feature live performance by Toronto punk band Artificial Dissemination

The artists possess an intimate understanding of the Toronto punk scene and present the duality inherent in a subculture where opposing sentiments often coexist side by side: neglected meets precious, tender meets harshness, young versus old, etc. Featured artists include:

• Anna Lise Walmer (Assemblage)

• Helen Prancic (Photography/Collage)

• Henry Martinuk (Photography)

• Jen Rec (Illustration)

• Jonathan Culp (A/V screening – Opening night only!)

• Leanne Davies (Painting)

• Leslie Walters (Painting/Drawing)

• Mike Lax (Illustration)

• NOXIOUS (Assemblage)

• RUNT (Painting)

• Shawna T. Heist (Raven) (Painting)

• Skull Studio (CORPUSSE) (Painting/Drawing)

Opening reception: Wednesday, October 7th, 2015 7-11p.m.

Length of exhibit: October 7th to October 30th
