This retrospective of the late Toronto photographer Oscar Wolfman (1956-2011) focuses on his transgressive yet deeply reverent queering of Jewish spirituality and culture.  Large-format archival prints reference the the Italian settecento, in lush reimaginings of biblical scenes. Meditations on Jewish ritual practices provocatively foreground their homoerotic valence. The deeply humane relation of Wolfman’s camera to the inner life of his subjects is perhaps the purest distillation of his spirituality.

Queen Gallery is seeking submissions for our upcoming art sale, Love Transforms to celebrate Valentine’s day. Art sale from February 9th to February 11th.

Love is the most sacred of all feelings.  In Valentine the one special person in our life will be anxiously expecting us.  What  would symbolize your “ I Love You” statement!?
In a time and age that individuality is threatened by industrial/commercial society many still avoid a mass produced cookie cut product to be representation of their affection as a gift!

This February, Queen Gallery pays tribute to love and Saint Valentine’s day with a curated display of jewelry and small artworks.

We welcome all the artists to submit high resolution jpegs of their work for these 3 days Valentine’s art sale.
The deadline will be January 31st, 2017 when our curator will select the best work.  Artist statements along with display-ready artwork will be required by February 7th, 2017 for those pieces selected.

A rental fee or participation fee will be required of those selected artists in order to help pay for advertising.  The rental fee will be related to table space for jewelry and small sized sculptures varying between $100 and $150. For small art works like paintings, drawings, or print, … the participation fee is $40.00 (for first submission)
+ $5.00 (for each additional work). Artists are responsible for delivering and collecting their works from the gallery.
