The Works on Paper show opened last Thursday, but we couldn’t make it until this weekend. In particular, we wanted to see linocuts by Stefan Berg. He has 6 artist’s proofs on display, most bearing sold stickers already.
Project Gallery in Leslieville, beside Ben Navaee Gallery where Lloyd Cooke has shown.
Mr Berg was in good company … and plenty of it. The walls are packed, floor to ceiling, with a wide range of styles and subjects.
Works are priced to be affordable … many in the 200 to 300 dollar range, some well under $100.
Up a fews stairs at the back of the gallery, more walls of art.
While the art scene around Leslieville is really taking hold, there is a spirit of cooperation rather than competition. Compliment Leslievillagers on the vibrancy of their area and they often cite the Gerrard Street Bazaar as another east end spot that’s taking off.
