Etobicoke artist Ina Puchala is among eight artists whose work will be showcased at the Etobicoke Civic Centre’s art gallery for a month starting on Sunday.
The art exhibit Out of Bounds opens to the public with a reception this Sunday, Jan. 27 from 2 to 4 p.m. at the civic centre at 399 The West Mall at Burnhamthorpe Road.
The art show is dedicated entirely to so-called non-objective works of art by Zora Buchanan, Susan Collacott, Bianka Guna, Lila Lewis Irving, Vallery Mokrytzki, Bill Philipovich, Puchala and Julita Sidonia Wolanska.
Non-objective art is unbounded by representatives of the natural world, unlike abstract art, which is by definition as abstraction of an object, explained Denise Dickin, senior arts consultant with the city.
Most of the work in the exhibition is colourful, large-scale pieces.
It marks the first time the Etobicoke Civic Centre gallery has exhibited exclusively non-objective work.
Admission to the gallery is free. Art works are for sale.
The art will be on display from Jan. 24 through Feb. 28. Gallery hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday to Friday and 2 to 5 p.m. on weekends and holidays.
