Tom Forrestall, "Master Works" (Held Over to Oct. 6th)
This significant collection of works dating from the mid 1980's to present includes 22 of Forrestall's signature egg tempera paintings on panel and 17 of his luscious watercolours.
Forrestall, who lives in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia and is now in his 75th year is represented in virtually every major public collection in the Maritime Region, Central Canada and beyond, including solo exhibitions in prominent galleries worldwide. Forrestall is one of the four great Canadian "Atlantic Realist" painters (the others being Mary Pratt, Christopher Pratt and Alex Colville). This is Tom's first major exhibition in Vancouver.
The artist will attend the opening reception and be here to sign copies of his book, "Tom Forrestall, Paintings, Drawings, Writings" by Tom Smart.
In addition, Mr. Forrestall will deliver an artist talk and "painting demonstration" on Saturday, September 17th at 1:00 pm.
There is no fee to attend and guests are welcome.
