Kathleen Gabriel, Artist
I am doing a blog on my friend Kathleen Gabriel, as I have really enjoyed her art over the years. I have a couple of her pieces in my house. She is a wonderful artist and she also has a show coming up soon. I have started this blog with one of the pieces she will be showing at her upcoming art show. This show is called Four Elements and she is sharing it with 5 other artists at the Women’s Art Association Gallery at 23 Prince Arthur Avenue.
This gallery is just steps away from the Bedford exit of the St. George Subway station. There is also some parking on Prince Arthur. This show has an opening reception on Friday, November 20 at 5:30 pm. The show goes from 5:30 pm to 9 pm. It continues on Saturday, November 21st, from 12 pm to 5 pm and Sunday, November 22nd, from 12 pm to 4 pm. If you take in this show, you might also want to dine at Fieramosca at 36A Prince Arthur Avenue. Fieramosca is one of the finest Restaurants in Toronto. You will need reservations and number is 416 323-0636.
At the reception on Friday night, there will be Stephanie Ledger doing some improv dance and Rebecca Bruton on the violin. The other artists doing this show are Ethel Christensen, Deniz Ergun-Seker, Stephanie Ledger, Malgorzata Pienkowski and Cathy McPherson.
Kathleen’s art has evolved over the years. She keeps changing her style and with each change in style, her work is fresh, colorful and innovative. I love her abstract art because it is always interesting. This is not my usual style of investment, but with her paintings, you can invest in yourself. That is having a work of art that will give you great pleasure in the years to come.
Kathleen, an award winning artist was born in Hungary. After graduating from OCAD, Drawing and Painting in 1967, she successfully pursued a career in children’s posters and text book illustrations as well as editorial illustrations for such magazines as Chatelaine. She has worked as a graphic designer for 24 years at the Toronto Reference Library.
Kathleen works from her home studio/gallery and enjoys opening her home twice a year for group shows. Kathleen is a member of the Women’s Art Association of Canada, Visual Arts Ontario and the Textile Museum of Canada. She has exhibited at the Toronto Reference Library (Group of Nine art shows), Ontario College of Art (Annual Whodunit mystery fundraising event), Women’s Art Association of Canada (members group and solo shows), Textile Museum of Canada (Annual Shadow Box fundraising event), and AWOL Gallery.
Kathleen also has an item on YouTube at Kathleen Gabriel on YouTube. See a blog on Kathleen at blogspot.
