Stockyards Gallery Hosts Opening Reception for Latest Exhibition
Canadian artists Clarence A. Porter and Lee Munn are celebrated at local Toronto Gallery.
There’s nothing we love more than an art show that attracts art collectors, novices and the local community at large. On Sept. 22, the Stockyards Gallery unveiled its latest exhibition “BIHAMINTO, The Co-Show” featuring the work of 2 talented Hamilton-based, artists Clarence A. Porter and Lee Munn. The paintings included various breathtaking landscapes—stunning vistas of the seasons.
The successful show opening drew in scores of art lovers, family, friends and even a celebrity or two. Most notably, Toronto-born actress Tatum Lee was in attendance. You may recognize the name as Lee stars in the popular remake of Stephen King’s IT. Live horror play director and producer Dan Spurgeon and Drew Blakeman of The Visceral Company, were also at the Sept. 22 event.
“What sets us apart from other galleries is that our gallery has very little overhead so we can sell art directly to art collectors and potential investors, fairly,” says Lola Kerecki, co-owner and curator of Stockyards Gallery. “We like to make our collectors happy — and we throw great parties.”
Many of the paintings were swept up by eager buyers in an instant, red dots quickly accompanied the artwork.
The exhibition runs until October 21 at the Stockyards Gallery, located at 1611 Dupont Street in Toronto.
