Kitchener-based Melissa Doherty and Halifax-based Sarah Maloney are mid-career artists who both take up the fine craft of making exquisite objects from imagery found in nature to explore the construction of gender, power and desire.
Working in sculpture, textiles and painting, these artists use both image and material as metaphors for reflection, isolation, comfort and posing reconsideration of our cultural context. Doherty is interested in how our contemporary culture manipulates the (real and imagined) landscape as if it were a toy. Layering paint to the extent that individual brush marks disappear, the artist creates lush sensual surfaces, with a terrific sense of depth. Her super-real aerial and close-up paintings depict single trees, as well as the urban forest, from a scopic yet intimate and introspective point of view.
Doherty’s method of depicting contemporary topography permits viewers
new readings of landscape metaphors, shifting the grand landscape
tradition from the sublime toward notions of the embodiment.
Produced with support from the Ontario Arts Council.

The Perfect Collection
What constitutes a “perfect” collection? Arts writer Betty Ann Jordan shares her vision of the art collection that knows no bounds. Scale, value, medium, colour – no obstacle deters the individual who dreams of re-creating the world in miniature by gathering eloquent objects that trigger or reinforce enduring memories, feelings, associations. This richly illustrated talk is a delirious incitement to imagining your ideal collection or refining the one you already have.
The gallery hosts a fundraiser for LEAF (Women’s Legal Action and
Action Fund). Doors open at 6pm. Tickets: $40; $25 LEAF Members
Thursday, June 21 from 6-8pm
David Sereda reprises his Stray Dogs Salon at the gallery.
Doors open at 7pm.
Monday, June 25
The Stray Dog Salon is a mongrel mix of music, words & theatre. We come up with a theme and our artists respond: they showcase new work or work-in-progress, perform pieces they've never done before in a stripped-down gallery setting and jump into collaboration with our Stray Dog Ensemble to come up with new takes on their work. The Stray Dog Salon began as a summer series in 1991 and has recently returned to Toronto. It has been held in clubs and cafés around the city and at the Eden Mills Writers' Festival. The name was suggested by writer Anne Michaels as a tribute to the legendary Stray Dog Cafe in St. Petersburg, where artists – poets, singers, dancers, playwrights – genres came to play, meet and perform. The café opened New Year's Eve 1911 and was shut down by the authorities in 1915. One of its mainstay events was Musical Mondays.
Continuing until September 16, Tom Thomson Gallery features the exhibition,
Echo Utopias: Penelope Stewart.
