Yumart is moving from the old space on Spadina to 401 Richmond St. West, Suite B20, here in Toronto. The first show in the new space will feature Tim Deverell – Painting and Works on Paper, September 12 – October 3. Yvonne, who runs the gallery, has made a great choice to open up the new space with Tim’s work. I admire Tim’s paintings a great deal!
The original Yumart space was funky – the scalloped paper walls and leaky roof added character – and I did very well with two solo exhibitions there. The new space will be bigger and should get considerably more walk-in traffic at 401 Richmond. My next exhibition won’t be for a year, which is a good thing, because it’s going to take me a while to get a new set of work going. I’ve been toying with the idea of working with encaustic for the next group of paintings, which should present some new ways of thinking about my imagery.
I’d like to encourage my readers here in Toronto to come out and support Yumart by visiting Tim Deverell’s show when it opens up in the new gallery space in September!
