Holt’s paintings in his fourth show at loop continue to be inspired by museum displays, historical archives, catalogs, and encyclopedias that invite multiple side by side visual comparisons within groups of art works, artifacts, archeological fragments, nature specimens, and other examples of natural and human history.
Holt has exhibited extensively and has taught for many years in the US, where he chaired the art department at Marymount College (later of Fordham University) in Tarrytown, New York. Since 2005 he has lived and worked in Toronto, teaching art at Upper Canada College.
Shereck's STUDIO VISITS is an ongoing series of large and small oil paintings representing artists at work in their studios. Engaging a longstanding tradition of painting artists at work, Shereck offers a voyeuristic glimpse of the aesthetic sensibilities of painters, sculptors, and writers as defined by their relationship to a personal creative space.
Shereck is a Toronto-based artist and educator who has exhibited across North America. He has been a member of loop Gallery for 6 years and is represented by The Fran Hill Gallery in Toronto. His work has been placed in public and private collections all over Canada.
Vesna Krstich is a Toronto-based art critic and curator whose research explores the interrelationship between art and experimental pedagogy from the 1960s onwards. Her essays and reviews have been published in ArtPapers, Parachute, C Magazine, Canadian Art, and Curator: The Museum Journal, among others.
Illustrated History and STUDIO VISITS close this Sunday, October 6.
