    Runs from Tuesday, March 21st to Sunday, May 14th, 2017.

    Opening reception is Sunday, March 26th, from 2 to 4 pm.

    Uptown Gallery is unveiling a new facet to their roster of activities with an inaugural solo show by one of their artists. This first of a series of solo exhibitions by members of the collective is set to be the largest mosaic show in the history of Waterloo region. It features more than 20 large moveable (framed) works by multiple international award-winning mosaic artist Sophie Drouin. Modern mosaic art is vibrant, colourful, and beautiful. Showings are somewhat rare so this is a unique opportunity to learn about this exciting old/new medium.

Next Show

  • Natural Beauty

    featuring ManChoi Chow, Christine Gagnon & Sophie Drouin, Louise Marée, and Michelle Salter.

    The exhibition runs from Monday, May 15th to Sunday, July 9th, 2017.

    The opening reception is Thursday, May 25th from 6 to 8 pm.

    The beauty of nature is used as inspiration showcasing the different disciplines of our featured artists.  ManChoi Chow works in photography to bring to us gorgeous and ethereal moments in our surroundings.  The new Organics micro-mosaic jewellery collection by Christine Gagnon and Sophie Drouin combines the beauty of finely crafted sterling silver with colourful hand-formed glass elements.  Louise Marée's oil paintings are energetic and vibrant recollections of her experiences.  Michelle Salter continues to be fascinated by the lusciousness and depth of water interpreted through the medium of encaustics.  Each artist approaches our concept in a uniquely individual way.  Come be surprised!
