Gerrard Art Space presents Never Finished, paintings by Max MacDonald, on now until May 29.
MacDonald attended the Ontario College of Art (before it added ‘Design’ and ‘University’ to its name) and University of Guelph, and has exhibited his paintings, that he considers his first love, since 1980. He regards the American abstract expressionists and the Group of Seven as his main influences. The Leslieville resident works as a graphic designer for the film and television industry, though he also produces creative output in mediums such as photography and music.
Gerrard Art Space is at 1475 Gerrard St. E. The gallery is open from 2 to 7 p.m., Wednesday to Sunday.
The event will feature art curated by gallery owner Christina Kostoff and artist Maggie Broda, to be auctioned with proceeds going to The New Mom Project. The charity provides baby supplies to young families in need, and the goal of the evening is to raise $10,000.
The Grow Up and Give party will run from 7 to 10 p.m. at Yellow House, 921 Kingston Rd., with wine and hors d’oeuvres, live jazz and a live auction. Tickets for the art party are $50.
Artisans At Work hosts Surface, the annual juried exhibition of student work from the Rosedale School of the Arts, until May 29. The show features the very best young talent at one of the city’s renowned creative educational institutions. Artisans At Work is at 2071 Danforth Ave., just west of Woodbine.
