final day of exhibition
Small Wonders: Gothic Boxwood Miniatures. The AGO is pleased to debut Small Wonders: Gothic Boxwood Miniatures, a groundbreaking exhibition of more than 60 boxwood miniatures organized in partnership with the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Rijksmuseum. Marvels of human ingenuity, so small they can fit in the palm of your hand, miniature boxwood carvings from the early 1500s have long remained a mystery. Offering new insight into the methods of production and cultural significance of these awe-inspiring works of art, this exhibition highlights more than four years of research that has used cutting-edge technology to understand these elegantly precise miniature rosaries, prayer beads and altarpieces. Organized by the Art Gallery of Ontario; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; and the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam ... more

Paul Fournier: Worlds of Wonder. Launching the Varley Art Gallery's 2017 season is a solo exhibition by Markham-based painter Paul Fournier. With a career spanning more than 50 years, Fournier's creative production has evolved through a careful balance of spontaneity and intuition. Through expansive abstracted compositions, the artist uses painterly strokes and gestures as a means of expressing his personal observations of the natural world. These dramatic and colourful works reveal lush tropical greenery, underwater geological formations and distant celestial phenomena. Ultimately, they are a testament to Fournier's decade-long experimentation of his medium and his ongoing quest to depict the poetic and spiritual dimensions of nature.
Present | Perfect | Continuous. To celebrate the Varley Art Gallery's 20th anniversary, a year-long rotation of our most popular works by F. H. Varley is on view in the Collections Gallery. Both the exhibition and accompanying publication highlight 20 years of acquisitions, acknowledge the role of the Varley-McKay Art Foundation in the development of the collection, and many donors who have contributed to its growth. Grammatically, the "present perfect continuous" is used with actions that began in the past but that are still continuing in the present. Symbolically, it implies the passing of time, something that is not fixed but always evolving. In this view, selected interventions by contemporary artists will bring new insights to the study of F. H. Varley's work from our collection.
Susana Reisman: Standardizing Nature. Paired with F. H. Varley's "Second Growth, Lynn Peak" (c. 1932-1936), Susana Reisman's photographic series Standardizing Nature explores the transformation of trees into building materials used in the construction industry. With this work, Reisman encourages us to question and understand the reasoning and decision-making behind the "shape" of things. Specifically, she is concerned for the natural resources we harness from the earth and the form, function, and role they play in our everyday lives.
All are welcome to attend FREE tour of Paul Fournier: Worlds of Wonder with the artist Paul Fournier on Sun 22 Jan, 1-2pm, and the opening reception 2-4pm ... more
