Spring Exhibition Opening Saturday, April 7 @ 7pm
AGORA GALLERY reopens for spring with an exhibition celebrating the life and art of ANTONIE LOS (1946-2017). Primarily known as an abstract painter, the exhibition consists of a wide range of work, including earlier representational paintings, allowing unique insight into his development as an artist over 50 years of painting. Born in Deventer, Holland, Los moved with his family to Canada at the age of 8, fleeing the aftermath of WWII. As a student enrolled in H.B. Beal’s art program in the late 1960s, Los was inspired by the vibrant London art scene and influenced by his teachers Herb Ariss, Rudolf Bikkers and Don Bonham. His abstract paintings – often made by building up and sanding multiple layers of paint to create depth – reveal a sophisticated and bold colour sense. They combine his lifelong study of theology and philosophy with his interests in music, anthropology, psychology, particle physics and the little incidents and motifs of everyday life.
Exhibition Opening: Saturday, April 7, 7 to 9pm
With music by the Michael Earnie Taylor Orchestra
The exhibition will be on display until May 20, 2018
Gallery Hours: Wednesday to Sunday, 11am to 5pm
