October 1st to November 12th
Shinya Kumazawa is a thought-provoking and refreshing analytical artist. He takes inspiration from Van Gogh and Monet and from oil to canvas, he paints nature’s extraordinary beauty. Fixed on the ebb and flow of mother earth, Shinya tunes into the supernatural realms to bring us his exhibition, Isolation with Nature. He invites us to experience the power of nature in its fullness through a realistic expression of how it can affect us. Shinya’s upbringing in Japan played a role in allowing him to see the world through a spiritual lens and access an emotional response to his surroundings. Shinya recognizes that the form aspect of his work is simply a visual presentation that frames the energy that dwells within.
RESILIENCE AT LATITUDE 44
Online Group Art Exhibit
September 1st to October 15th, 2020
To quote Leonard Cohen, “There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in”. We would like to build on it. "There is a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets out.” This is how Resilience got out.
While COVID-19 is a source of unexpected stress and adversity, the word ”Resilience” has never been more important in our lives. This exhibit will be providing us with a unique experience to share art works with you at both the Latitude 44 Gallery and in an online gallery. “Resilience” showcases works from a group of 16 women artists and how they reflect their resilience stories in their art works. Each artist has an individual page showcasing their art works and featuring the story behind it.
One other feature of this exhibit is that each artist worked with the same size of frames. A Resilience story told in a black frame! Some of the artists also created sculpture works in addition to their framed works. Make sure to check each artist’s page and read about their inspiration. All the works featured online will be on display at our gallery in the Junction from Sep 1st to Sep 30th, 2020. If you are interested in seeing the art works for real, you can visit our gallery during our regular business hours. The online exhibit and works are still going to be available until
Oct 15th. You will be greeted by a sanitizing station at the entrance to make sure of everyone’s safety.

Taking place from Nov 18 – Dec 18, our new exhibition showcases the sculptures of Hugh Russel.
Hugh Russel is a renowned Canadian sculptor whose figurative bronzes can be found in collections around the world. He trained and worked in the field of commercial art, and now applies that rigorous discipline to his sculptor.
Hugh rightly calls himself a storyteller. All of his meticulously researched and beautifully crafted pieces are more than just perfect portrayals of a particular person or animal, they record instants in time. “I want to you to see the change in the horse’s pace and feel the fatigue of the rider,” says Hugh, “I want to capture the moment the dancer lifts his head just before he leaps.”The sculptor’s extraordinary knowledge of anatomy and his empathy for his subject matter combine with spectacular results. His sense of humour and whimsy add another dimension to his smaller pieces, which are often representations of animals in motion, or fantastical creatures and mythical beings.
