Painting Series

Duncan Weller is an accomplished writer, illustrator, filmmaker, photographer and painter, and currently completing a young adult novel titled Lara Wood. Weller has won two of Canada’s top awards, the Governor General’s Award and the Ruth and Sylvia Schwartz Award. Weller has a varied portfolio of work, of non-objective and abstract works, surrealism, sci-fi, photo-realism, expressionism, oversized cartooning, and allegorical works. In this latest exhibition of paintings, Weller takes on a more human approach with his portraited figure works, similar to that of Varley or Christina Sealey, and found a voice with themes that required adherence to allegorical works, resulting in a consistent aesthetic journey. Duncan has secured several grants from the Ontario Arts Council to continue work on his paintings, animation, and books which have an international audience and distribution.

Gala Opening Fri Sept 26th, 7pm. Featuring artist talks, jazz music by Robin Ranger, and refreshments including delectable catering from Sushi Bowl and Sweet Escape Cake Cafe & Bakery. All ages welcome, all by donation.
