Contemporary Painting: the Vocabulary of Paint with Kim-Lee Kho
       Sunday Apr. 15, 2018       
Rescheduled April 29, 2018    
2:00pm - 4:00pm       
Many contemporary painters are working with an expansive vocabulary of paint, or a distinctly contemporary language, using (and pushing) the properties of the paint and its application in varied and unexpected ways.
Kim-Lee Kho will lead us through gorgeous examples from artists working today – many of them Canadian – focusing in on their painterly vocabulary and unique ways of working with paint. For more information about Kim-Lee and her classes please click here.

Spaces in Between NPCC

Spaces in Between

Exhibition Duration: April 16 - May 6, 2018

Reception: Sunday, April 22 from 2 – 4 pm, RSVP on Facebook

Spaces In Between is a multimedia exhibition that showcases the artwork of emerging artists in the Greater Toronto Area. The exhibiting artwork creates alternative spaces and/or explores the passage of time through traditional and new media methods. Artists create visualizations of another world through creation or depiction. These spaces are derived from their memory, predictions of the future or their imagination. 

As Neilson Park Creative Centre (NPCC) embraces our new vision and mandate for 2018, we aim to support the creative and personal growth of emerging artists. Exhibiting artists range from students, graduates or those who just transitioned into their creative practice. Whatever their journey may be, NPCC encourages their dedication to the arts through this exhibition and future ones to come.

Addae Nurse 

Exhibition Duration: April 9 – May 13, 2018

With three confirmed exhibitions in his first month, including his debut for the Toronto Design Offsite Festival, Addae Nurse is already picking up lots of steam as an emerging Toronto artist. His body of work explores the nexus between femininity, sexuality, expression, and anonymity. Fascinated by shadow and movement, his images are intimate and often temperamental, juxtaposing the vastness of space with the details of the human form.
