Ron Gordon, Steve Gordon, Maurice Kahn
Opening Reception: Tuesday June 4, 6-9
First cousins ron gordon, steve gordon and maurice kahn were born in johannesburg, emigrated from south africa and now live on three different continents, ron in perth, australia, steve in toronto, canada, and maurice in jerusalem, israel. Their work reflects the influence of their adopted homes and environments while their southern african roots and heritage play a key role in their creativity.
Over the years they became aware of their common (related) love of nature and sought individually to capture its awe and beauty through the lens and the medium of print-making.
This exhibition brings together for the first time the fruits of their creativity which you are invited to share.

Jayne Libby Sims
Opening Reception: Thursday July 11, 6-8pm
A mostly self-taught abstract artist, Jayne Libby Sims worked intensely with renowned abstract expressionist Frank Arnold (Fresno, CA and Los Cabos, Mx.) during 2010 and 2011, gaining new insights into the world of abstract expressionism. The result of this, starting with “Frank Bird”(Sold, July 2011) and also her unconventional faces, lead her followers down a new and exciting path. This year (2013) marks twelve years of painting. For years I struggled with what to say about my work….always looking for that deep something that would define me as an artist. Most recently I determined that I just paint……my thoughts of the moment, some dreams and desires……simple. So I shall just say that life as an artist is a true eclectic mix of work, one long learning experience. Exciting, wide ranging and always painted with passion to a background of tempestuous classical music. This revelation I owe to my teacher, mentor, friend and muse, Frank Arnold (www.frankarnoldart.com). Thank you so very much Frank. My work has been shown at various locations around Toronto, including Arts on King (2002-2005) John Steinberg and Associates (2005) the Square Foot Art Show, Riverdale Art Walk, Hangman Gallery (including a solo show in 2006 “Where the desert meets El Mar”) and the Queen West Art Crawl. I have been commissioned in Mexico and Toronto,with many avid collectors. At the Frank Arnold Gallery in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico, my work was featured for Art Walk night in 2010, also featured in the window of Alexander Designs in Toronto and in the Style at Home magazine (March 2013, page 88). Each year I try to donate work to worthy causes and people. This year has been no exception. I am the mother of two wonderful children, both artists in their own right.
