On Now


“Vision,” the current exhibition at UpTown Gallery, features recent works by ManChoi Chow, Mary Lou Hiller, and Julie Krahule.

The show runs from Tuesday, August 17 until Sunday, September 19.

About the Artists:

 ManChoi’s art is his vision of life that incorporates photography and his experience as a spiritual care and therapy practitioner. In “Vision,” he offers glimpses of his efforts to make sense of life, especially during liminal moments of uncertainty, and to connect with fellow sojourners in life who seek meaning, purpose, and fulfillment.

Acrylic painter, Mary Lou Hiller, has always found working to a show“title” an opportunity to explore new ideas. In this exhibition, she has interpreted onsite landscapes in new ways, be it through the inspiration of masters such as Van Gogh and Klimt, or by allowing a “happy accident” to take the lead.

Julie Krahule. Julie has been enthralled with nature since she was a little girl, making doll food with flowers, inspired by her grandfather who loved gardening. After a role as an event coordinator at Nortel Networks’ head office, she pivoted to roles as a landscape designer, a horticultural therapist, and a botanical artist. Then, introducing the joy of nature to children has been most gratifying, providing them with hope for the “vision” of the future.
