OPEN WINDOWS is an exhibition featuring the artworks of Karen Decker and Victoria Taylor from May 29th to June 4th at Project Gallery. The exhibition symbolizes a “time to open our windows to the arrival of spring and fresh colourful beginnings after the heaviness of winter is finally exhausted. As well as a figurative look through a ‘glass windows’ to a view of things, as we would like them to be.”

Karen Decker
My pieces are inspired by stain glass designs that I have encountered in Riverdale and across Toronto.  My largest piece, titled “Our Main Street” is a stain glass window as imagined from the inside looking out onto the streetscape, looking out from 790 Logan Ave (24inches x 48 inches). Tumbled coloured glass, chandelier pieces and gloss gel mediums cradle the bold colours that made up a feeling of home base.
