In conjunction with his exhibition at the MacLaren, celebrated regional painter Gary Evans presents on his contemporary art practice. Evans’ vibrant oil paintings challenge traditional notions of perception and experience of the Canadian landscape. His unique approach includes references to historical painting as well as contemporary urban themes.

With a career spanning more than two decades, his numerous solo exhibitions include Seeing Things: The Paintings of Gary Evans, which toured across Canada, as well as Station, a survey of paintings presented at the Art Gallery of Windsor. He has participated in group exhibitions across Canada and internationally at venues including Humber Arts and Media Studios in Etobicoke, ON; Deluge Contemporary, Victoria, BC; the Tina B. Biennial, Prague, Czech Republic; and the Kaoshung Museum of Fine Arts, Taiwan. Evans is a graduate of the Ontario College of Art and Design and is the Coordinator at the School of Design And Visual Art, Georgian College, Barrie, Ontario. He is represented by Paul Petro Contemporary Art in Toronto.
