The Venter's have three exhibitions opening next month. Deon is having a solo exhibition at the Mayberry Gallery in Toronto at their premises across from the Art Gallery of Ontario at 324 Dundas Street West. If you are in Toronto, be sure to stop in, the exhibition runs from September 7th - 28th.
There will be an exhibition at the Venter Gallery featuring selections from Deon's Missing and Highway of Tears series. The monumental 'Pyramid #9 - Missing #3' will be on exhibit along with work from 'Peonies & Goldenrods' and an exciting new photo-based multi-media work. Kathy will be showing a diverse group of work in clay and bronze. A reception date will be announced soon.
On Sunday, September 22nd for one day only from 11am-4pm, Kathy and Deon have been invited to show in the ballroom and foyer at Government House in Victoria as part of the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria's House Tour, organized by the AGGV Gallery Associates. This is the first time Deon's large scale works will be exhibited in Victoria and will also feature all six of Kathy's life-size Coup d'Oeil series. Five fine homes will be open with exhibiting artists and tickets are $35, available online at aggv.ca/house-tour or contact the AGGV at 250.384.4171 for more information. All proceeds go to support AGGV programs, acquisitions and conservation.
We hope to see everyone!
