I'm in a group show here in Toronto throughout August... It's at LE Gallery (1183 Dundas St West), and the opening reception is this friday from 7-10... I'll be displaying the butterfly piece before it ships to NYC...
Below is the invite, a little write up the director did, and a shot of the piece framed...
A few of my artists in the show are some of my favourites in the city, so I'm pretty excited to be involved... If you are in Toronto come on out...

Who’s Got the Papers?
Young Canada is committed to bringing forward survey shows that distill contemporary Canadian practice into a series of exhibitions that offer access to Canada’s most confident and ambitious young contemporary artists. A new generation is forging a path of innovation, creativity and technical proficiency which not only contribute to international dialogues within the visual arts but are also beginning to write their own. Who’s Got the Papers celebrates works on paper from a selection of artists and highlights the impact of what has come to influence a new generation of contemporary artists. Accelerated access to global cultures, and sub cultures, as well as a redefining of privacy and Interaction with digital social networking structures has created a set of influences unlike those experienced before. Today’s Visual Artists gauge and reflect the effects of this new landscape and our August Group show serves as a cross-section of drawing, printmaking and photography in today’s changing climate.
