Summer, a season when life goes smoother and people can enjoy free time and vacations.
Summer, a time to go somewhere else, physically or mentally.
Art and culture are a means of escape, providing a one-way ticket to discovery and an opportunity to deeply nourish our spirit and inner selves.
This summer, ArtWe invites you to embark on a remote journey into the universe of our local artists. It’s a little trip, geographically speaking, but a long way away in terms of creativity.

Rosemarie’s art often features landscapes; in this painting, she successfully strives to portray the beauty of Ontario’s remote wilderness. Her artistic style, which is close to Neo-Impressionism, uses vibrant colors to create a particular ambience in this picturesque scene.
Algonquin Park, Ontario – 400 CAD
Neighborhood: West End
Elizabeth is a fine artist living in Toronto. She was among our selected artists last winter. For her 2nd nomination, we chose a plein air study of dogwood and columbine flowers, painted in her neighborhood. The piece gives us another opportunity to enjoy her spectacular talent.
Dogwood and Columbines – 850 CAD
Wayne is a fine art photographer who seeks to meld the tenuous link between architecture and abstraction. His artwork, sometimes conceptual, is visually stunning. He mainly produces black and white photographs with a great emphasis on the balance of the compositions. Attentive eyes can find colored tones though, such as the dark blue hues seen in his Supersonic piece.
A great pick for any lover of fine art photography.
Tradition – 1,500 CAD
Supersonic – 250 CAD
Kurt Rostek is a versatile artist who expresses himself in abstract compositions as well as figurative ones. He participated in our 2020’s Winter Selection with two magnificent pieces representing both styles.
Most recently, he is exhibiting works from his past European travels, namely two watercolors representing the city of Paris. Free of inhabitants, Paris quietly reveals its incomparable beauty.
Only one person is enjoying a drink on the terrace of a boulevard café. Is it the artist himself?
Paris 3 – The Seine – 450 CAD
Paris in the Spring – 350 CAD
Neighborhood: East York
Megan is a talented and dedicated artist living in East York, Toronto. Her colorful and Post-Expressionist art style is simply breathtaking. Throughout her work, she reminds us that art has the power to establish ideas and relay opinions about our society.
“Get In Your Box” depicts the general conformism of today’s society. People are often labeled, boxed in, or put down whenever they stand for different or alternative way of thinking or living. This painting is a message to everyone, reminding us to not diminish ourselves to fit into someone else’s preferences or opinions. It celebrates the beauty of not conforming.
