I am honoured to have been chosen to participate in this curated exhibition by Karlene Ouellete, Emerging Curator at Propellor Gallery, Toronto, Ontario.

Karlene talks about her intent in creating this exhibition…

“At one point or another, we have all gone on a journey. To me, a Scenic Route is more than just the experience of travelling, it is the passage of time, the opportunity of new memories, and the promise of stories untold. I have travelled a fair bit these last few years and each experience offered new challenges that brought about some spectacular memories. As an emerging curator myself I was a little nervous to tackle the Toronto Outdoor Art Fair, but booth by booth the excitement grew. I was ready to see where this path would take me because I knew I would find the perfect artists to make this exhibit work, and I did.

I was drawn to these artists because of their creative vision; their ability to capture the world artistically had me pause and admire the moment in much the same way one would “stop and smell the roses”. I felt a profound connection between these artists and I knew I found the exhibition I was looking for. I will always be astonished as new perspectives emerge when artists cross paths.”

“Scenic Route: Emerging Perspectives” ran from January 8 – January 19, 2020. It featured the work of four artists who won the “Emerging Artists by Emerging Curator Award” at the 2019 Toronto Outdoor Art Fair.
