Cool photo exhibits & artists around T.O. right now

As I’ve been out and about seeing lots of theatre, music and spoken word lately, I must remember to not forget the other media I love: film, photography and visual arts.

Here are just a couple of photography/visual arts exhibits you can check out in Toronto:

Photographer Pamela Williams and animator/artist Patrick Jenkins feature their work at a Valentine’s Show at the Terrace Gallery (51 Austin Terrace, Toronto), including a new book of Williams’ Paris photographs, as well as some new works from her France and Argentina visits, and new DVDs and books by Jenkins: starting tonight (Thurs, Feb 7) from 5-9 p.m. and continuing this Saturday and Sunday from 12-5 p.m.

Williams is also giving a slide show talk on her work on February 20 from 7-9 p.m. $20. Call 416-533-2440 or 416-444-3086 to register and for location info.

I have three of Williams’ cemetery sculpture photos and a print of a still from Jenkins’ animated film noir Labyrinth hanging in my home. Beautiful, startling and haunting images – well worth a look.

Musician and artist Patti Smith’s photography exhibit Patti Smith: Camera Solo is up at The Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) from February 9 – May 19, with Smith and her band performing on March 7 in the AGO’s Walker Court.

These are just two of the many art exhibits happening in and around T.O. What are you excited about seeing?
