Cobalt Gallery, 870A Kingston Rd., presents a new exhibition of paintings by Chris Evitts, now until Oct. 21. The exhibition is called Chance, Risk and Luck, and features paintings and pottery by this multi-talented artist.
“These works are the products of a personal year punctuated by chance and luck, flooded studios, lottery wins, theft, and the chance meetings and connections that occur, seemingly out of the blue,” says Evitts in his artist’s statement. “The need for risk, and the existence of, or lack of, luck is such a large part of my creating and art making.”
For more information call Cobalt Gallery at 416-694-0156, or visit cobaltgallery.ca.
