COLLECTIVE 131 PRESENTS “PERFECT 10” GROUP SHOW THRU MONTH OF MARCH

Another great opening for FLY to buzz around….the artists known as Collective 131 launched their group show for the month of March titled “Perfect 10” in their fab gallery underneath Holt Renfrew at 50 Bloor West in downtown Toronto. With double window frontage into the mall, the paintings on display attracted many walk-ins as well as friends, family and collectors to wish all the artists well with this special show of “smalls” that hangs alongside the large canvases of the Collective’s members.
Lisa Litowitz was happy to pose for friends in front of her colourful abstract landscapes (she’s pictured below right)…and I was immediately drawn to my friend Mark J. Gleberzon‘s fun “Barbie booth” where some of his gorgeous Barbie portraits hangMorgan Jones has a similar forest-themed booth showcasing his unique creations…There are so many talented emerging artists participating in the “Perfect 10” show… ...including a young artist whose work FLY was immediately drawn to – Dinesh Subramanian. His impressionist style street scenes of Toronto were beautiful – see below And FLY also loved the soft palette used by Meaghen Burdick in this view of a country road (below)There were paintings for every size of wall and wallet – check these out… FLY bumped into Collective member Morgan Jones flanked below by two friends who obviously know a good work of art when they spy it! FLY is a big fan of J&J Photos – that big horned cow skull would look lovely over FLY’s mantle…hmmm.So much to see, something for every taste. Easy to find the gallery in the lower mall underneath Holt Renfrew on Bloor…and you can follow them on Instagram:¬† @collective_131_toronto
The show continues throughout the month of March. Tell them Fly On the Gallery Wall sent you.
