Toronto, Canada, June 28, 2010 – Meta Gallery is pleased to present Phantasmagoria, our summer group exhibition featuring works by Cathie Bleck (Cleveland, OH), Ray Caesar (Toronto, ON), Dean Chamberlain (Venice, CA), Andrew Jones (San Francisco, CA), Kris Kuksi (Hayes, KS), Paul Laffoley (Boston, MA) and Mars-1 (San Francisco, CA).
Bringing together many of these artists together for the first time, as well as welcoming local artistic luminary Ray Caesar to our exhibition program, this exhibition embraces the informal and original visions reflected in the artworks of these contemporary pioneers.
Phantasmagoria refers to among other things, “fantastical imagery in art”, an appropriate entry point into the wild and imaginative realms explored in the dark and hauntingly beautiful works of Ray Caesar and Andrew Jones, the futuristic and intricately detailed creations of Kris Kuksi and Paul Laffoley, the luminous and ethereal art of Dean Chamberlain and Mars-1 and the fluid and poetic scratchboard work of Cathie Bleck.
Phantasmagoria will be on view from July 9 to August 25, 2010. Gallery hours are Wednesday through Saturday from 12-6 and Sunday from 12-5. The opening reception will be on Friday July 9th from 7-10pm. Cathie Bleck, Ray Caesar and Kris Kuksi will be in attendance.
