On September 14, 2017 we collaborated with Design House London for our biggest show yet; showing larger format work from two the masters of Canadian Abstraction - Thomas Ackermann and Jack Winn; as well as stunning work from Dan Tamborro, Greg Benz, Elzbieta Kurowska and Roshanak Henravi. The opening was off the charts; check out the pictures below.
The first show of 2017 took place from February 10 to 12, 2017 at Anderson Craft Ales. This has been a great venue for us and this show was no exception. The Brewery Show exhibited brilliant examples of Canadian Abstraction from three seasoned artists: Jack Winn, Thomas Ackermann and Cliff Kearns. We also introduced a young upcoming talented artist from Kingston, Evan Ginsberg, whose work sat confidently next to these masters. Enjoy the pictures below from this show
We joined forces with Anderson Craft Ales for a Holiday Show and Sale from December 1 to 4, 2016. This was truely a group show and a great way to conclude a very busy year. We featured six of our regular artists: Greg Benz, Bryan Jesney, Dan Tamborro, Lori Mirabelli, Roshanak Heravi and Elzbieta (Ela) Kurowska. We also introduced two new talents: John Koyounian and Simon James Shaw. Enjoy the pictures below from this show; we will be back at Anderson Craft Ales in February 2017.
September 23, 2016 saw Unkle Collective return to 207 King Street, London ON for their fall show; the show ran September 23 to 26, 2016. This is where it all began back in March and it was like the band getting back together; with four talented artists coming together for the first time since their Toronto ON show in April of this year. Greg Benz, Bryan Jesney, Dan Tamborro and Lori Mirabelli brought beautiful new work to the show; enjoy the pictures below from a wonderful show.
June 9, 2016 saw yet another opening featuring the artwork of Evan Ginsberg, a talented young man from Kingston, Ontario; Elzbieta (Ela) Kurowska, in her first show in her hometown of London, Ontario, and Lynn Leonard from Toronto, Ontario.

June 4, 2016 -- while the weather was unpredictable and we ended up with rain (long needed, although not that night) we had a very successful opening during Nuit Blanche in London, Ontario. This was our most ambitious show featuring 3 of our current artists (Greg Benz, Dan Tamborro and Bryan Jesney) as well as the addition of metal sculptor Richard Sturgeon and talented painter Adam Giroux. The show closed on June 8, 2016, but you can see pictures from the opening below.
On Saturday, May 28 Unkle Collective assisting in the launch of a new artists space called Thunder Gallery in Niagara Falls, Ontario. We were literally a pop up event inside a new gallery space that had just "popped up"; a different kind of venture for us. 2 of our current artists showed (Kerryn Graham and Roshanak Heravi) alongside 2 Niagara artists (Geoff Farnsworth and the curator of the space Marinko Jareb). It was an eclectic gathering; enjoy the photos below.
