Last Week to see these shows WED - SAT 12 to 5 , SUN 1 to 4 MOIRA CLARK and YVONNE SINGER

 Moira Clark Colour Complex 
Colour Complex debuts new abstract paintings which build on Clark’s longstanding fascination with colour harmonics, composition, and the formal elements of painting. These large and vital paintings transform varied representational references into amorphous puzzle pieces squeezed together and fine-tuned to produce paintings that are simultaneously tense and harmonious. 
Clark was born, lives and works in Toronto. She was included in the exhibitions Art School {Dismissed} curated by Heather Nicol; and The C Word, curated by Richard Mongiat. She was a founding member of loop Gallery, and has also been represented in Toronto by XEXE Gallery/KWT Contemporary. Her work was granted a retrospective exhibit at the Cambridge Galleries in Preston, and was also selected for inclusion in the 2008 Magenta publication Carte Blanche Vol. 2: Painting 

 Yvonne Singer just in time (or hanging by a thread) 
Just in time (or hanging by a thread) follows Singer’s ongoing exploration of the cultural nuances and sculptural qualities of everyday language. The installation features 24 hourglasses, a metronome, and a blue neon text reading: "so I watched him take his last breath and I was relieved. I needed the certainty that he was gone". Placed alongside signifiers of the demarcation of time, this enigmatic passage about loss functions as both text and object. 
Singer is an Associate Professor in the Department of Visual Arts, and the former Graduate Program Director in visual arts at York University. Her community activities have included board membership on the Toronto Arts Council, C Magazine and the Koffler Centre for the Arts. Recent exhibitions include The Game of Life;1 step forward, 10 steps backwards, art sourterrain and Nuit Blanche Montreal; jst wrds at the Cambridge Galleries; and I do, I undo, I redo, at Critical Mass, Port Hope.
