Driving Art Up the Wall: Jeff Harrison

This past week, I've gone to a few fun shows that have artists working intensively with walls. All three are recommended for a drop by. For his exhibition at Parts Gallery, pictured above, Jeff Harrison takes his characteristically crazy-busy canvas style and extends it onto screenprints on newsprint, which paper the walls. Extra prints were handed out for free at the opening, and Parts tells me they still have a few on hand if you'd like. My favourite work in the show was was a work that spelled out "GRAVY," a word which seemed to sum up, for me, the enjoyable excess that characterizes Harrison's best work.

We finished installing Jeffrey Harrison's show which opens tomorrow.
The walls are covered with hand-pulled one of a kind screenprints done on newsprint and the canvas paintings are hung over that.
It all makes for a truly ebullient exhibition.

SPOILER: Along with fruit punch, Jeff will be giving away some screen prints at the opener Thursday November 18.
after that they will be available for ten bucks.

Thanks to all who helped out and supported our inaugural year at Toronto's International art fair Art Toronto 2010.
It was a great success!

Here are some pictures from the 5 day event.

Calm before the storm.

not exactly a storm, but it was heartening to see a huge line up of art supporters everyday an hour before doors opened.

Fiona Ackerman was in town for the show
and she obliged me by standing with her painting for a photo op.
