‘Michael Reeves Retrospective’ in the Gallery from Mar. 2 to Apr. 4th

Welcome some vibrant colour into this cold season by visiting the Michael Reeves Retrospective exhibit at the Kent Farndale Gallery. The opening reception will begin Saturday, March 2nd, 2019 at 2 pm. The show will run March 2nd – April 4th, 2019.

Michael Reeves is arguably one of the last Neo-romantic painters. His peers and mentors have been Directors and Trustees of the Tate and National Galleries in England. He came to Canada with the hopes of making his name as a painter, and at this he succeeded. He and his wife Norma found their place in paradise on Lake Scugog, Ontario, Canada in 1984 and the works Michael produced there are the product of his dream come true. In 1996 the eminent Joan Murray considered him “one of the major painters of his generation” and his works “a triumph of individualism”.

The Reeves family is planning a multi-gallery show of Michael’s works in 2019 as a celebration of his life. Each gallery show will feature different pieces and will showcase a large cross-section of his paintings and drawings. The gallery shows will not only include Michael’s more contemporary works, but also some of his works from the 1950s, none of which have ever been shown before. For more information on the other exhibitions and venues, please visit http://michaelreeves.ca.

The Kent Farndale Gallery is open 7 days a week during library hours. Please call 905-985-7686 for more information.
