City of Art III
Event Website: https://www.instagram.com/gallery1313/?hl=en
1313 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M6K 1L8, Canada
Reception: 26 Oct 2021
City of Art III is a curated exhibition of artists who explore the issues of development and city planning as seen through their art works. This exhibition follows two successful exhibitions of a similar theme though this one is somewhat transitive as we all learn to cope during a pandemic. Covid has helped us navigate our urban environment differently though we are no less passionate about the urban centre that surrounds us, Artists see their world in different ways and this leads to conversation and perhaps exploring new ways to look at our urban environment. This year’s exhibit includes film, photography, painting, mixed media, drawing and sculpture.
Curated by Gallery 1313 director, Phil Anderson; the exhibition reads like a collection of short stories each with an individual vision or tale to tell.

Nature as Breath.
Courage to create from the Heart.
A Spirit of innovation in contemporary artwork.
These elements honour our past and inspire our future.

How often we feel sorry for ourselves when going through tough times, or blaming ourselves for mistakes me done or encountered during the journey through life?
It’s doesn’t matter, living troubled times behind make us stronger, with better sense of self and better appreciation for life.
In my portraits I wanted to show beauty of “today” with scars of “yesterday.”

My family is the perfect example of what it means to be Canadian — with one son-in-law Vietnamese/Chinese, the other Guyanese and a Polish
By 2031, one in three Canadians will belong to a visible minority. One in four will be foreign-born, the highest proportion since the end of the last wave of mass immigration that began around 1910. -Statscan, 2015
25 years ago cities like Toronto were no longer majority British, giving the way to the dominant population of the Italians and the Pole (part of the non-visible minority European-origin population.)
Now, we're moving away from a population dominated by people of a European background. Over the next two decades South Asians, those with origins in India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka, will make up the largest visible minority group at about 28 per cent of the whole population of Canada.
