Why The @#&! Do You Paint?: All the Colours

  • The Gladstone Hotel 1214 Queen Street West Toronto, ON, M6J 1J6 Canada (map)

Opening reception: October 26 | 7pm to 10pm

The Gladstone is pleased to announce the 3rd annual group painting exhibit, Why the @#&! Do You Paint? All the Colours, asking painters to consider what about colour (or lack there of) speaks to them most? What are the colours of your favourite fruit? Was there a colour of crayon which was always the shortest in the box? What colours remind you of your closest friends? Do you have a favourite colour or one that you favour least? Is it saturation, brightness, or hue that interests you most about colour? Is it the colour of light or of water, of a childhood house or your first car. Is it the colour of a loved one’s hair or skin? Is it the colour of a family’s lineage? #WTFDYP will bring painter’s narratives and motivations together through painting which considers the full spectrum of colour.
