Drop by the gallery this Friday, March 2, 2018 for “March First Friday”. The gallery has just opened a new exhibition, Un-censored – Tom Hodgson: the drawing room.
Un-censored is an exhibition of captivating figure drawings, never previously exhibited, by famed Canadian artist, Tom Hodgson. Though Hodgson is predominantly known as a Canadian abstract painter and member of the Painters Eleven (1953), his fondness of life drawing was evident as his studio, The Pit, became a hotspot for Toronto’s artistic and business milieu in the 1970s. Hodgson was responsible for establishing Toronto’s longest running life drawing class, housed at the Gladstone Hotel for the past thirty years. Still in endurance today, the drawing class is a relic of the Canadian art scene.
The Judith & Norman Alix Art Gallery is open late every First Friday until 9:00PM. First Friday’s are free and fun for the whole family. Donations are much appreciated for this drop-in event.
The Judith & Norman Alix Art Gallery is located at 147 Lochiel Street, downtown Sarnia.
Details of March First Friday and the new exhibitions can be found HERE.
