- Deck the Walls: Dec 6-31
Opening Reception: Saturday Dec 6th, 2-6pm
Festive Reception: Thursday Dec 11th, 6-10pm
Exhibition: Dec 6-31, 2014 *EXTENDED until January 7th, 2015
Project Gallery will be hosting it’s second large-format salon style exhibition of contemporary artworks from Dec 6-31, 2014 entitled DECK THE WALLS. There will be an opening afternoon reception on Saturday Dec 6th from 2-6pm, and an evening reception the following Thursday Dec 11th from 6-10pm. The Salon exhibition style was established in 1667 in France by the Academie des Beaux-Arts and held in the Louvre. To accommodate the vast quantity of work submitted by students of the Academie, artworks were displayed from floor to ceiling with little space separating frames. This style has since been incorporated throughout history in museums and galleries, including the Art Gallery of Ontario’s display of its European collection. Project Gallery will be integrating this historic exhibition style for the second time with the gallery’s walls strategically filled with over 500 artworks that are 12” x 12” or smaller.
Featuring over 850 artworks by 156 artists:

- Doug Temple Solo: Oct 9-15 PHOTO ALBUM
Reception: Saturday October 11 (2-5pm)
Exhibition: October 9 – 15, 2014
Doug Temple’s artworks explore space, abstraction, and architecture through his use of vivid palettes, shapes, and techniques. Primarily through oil paintings and collage, Temple uses innovative mark-making and compositional techniques to create bold and physical works that stimulate considerations of symmetry, entropy, and networks.
Doug Temple is the art director of the CBC and has extensive professional experience in animation, motional graphics, design and broadcasting.
“My approach is to take representational imagery and make abstract what is recognizable or familiar. This also works sometimes in reverse – bringing out something recognizable out of abstraction. The subjects I choose come form everyday life: photographs, media, posters, graphic design generally and direct observation. My painting technique makes use of adding to and layering up the surface, sometimes to the point of concealing everything below, but also in stroking through and removing or revealing what is underneath.”Reception: Saturday October 11 (2-5pm) Exhibition: October 9 – 15, 2014 Doug Temple’s artworks explore space, abstraction, and architecture through his use of vivid palettes, shapes, and techniques.
