    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!

    Picking Up the Pieces

    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

  • Colour Spectrum


    featuring Jane BayneCathy Pascoe, and Adrienne Zoe.

    Exhibition runs from Tuesday, July 18th to Sunday, September 17th.

    Adrienne and Jane will be hosting an opening reception on Thursday July 20th from 6 to 8 pm.

    In today's world, it would seem that we need colour more than ever. Colour is like spice...it can induce a euphoric state where for a moment the viewer can be transported into a world of pure enjoyment, freedom and awe.   These three award-winning artists invite guests to experience the Colour Spectrum through photography, coloured pencil and acrylic paintings.  Adrienne Zoe, a celebrated photographer, uses her camera, filters and computer to escalate the beauty of glass, flowers and skies.  Coloured pencil crayon is what moves Cathy Pascoe to produce detailed and unforgettable works of art. Jane Bayne finds acrylic paint essential to capture local landscapes with unparalleled brilliance.  The colour spectrum is a powerful tool in the hands of an artist...it gives a painting its full force and encourages artistic licence to soar.
