Phyllis Gordon’s art practice is based in drawing, collage, painting and printmaking. Her work reflects a strong connection to the natural world, particularly forests and trees.
Threatened Forests is a contemplation on the very immediate transformation to the land that we now face. It offers glimpses of the vigour and lightness of healthy trees alongside images of burning forests and the desolate and vulnerable trees that have survived fire. Gordon has spent considerable time directly observing the impacts of fire, intensified by global warming. This exhibit features ink drawings on paper and carved drawings/paintings on wood.
Gordon is a Toronto-based visual artist who regularly exhibits in solo and juried groups in the Greater Toronto Area and Southern Ontario.
Join us for the opening reception and artist talk in Sunderland Hall on Sunday, October 20 from noon to 1 pm.
The exhibit continues to October 27. First Unitarian Congregation of Toronto 175 St. Clair Avenue West Toronto, ON M4V 1P7 416-924-9654
