Enlightening new art exhibit at the Library’s Art Gallery in Côte Saint-Luc

A new exhibit of paintings by Dennis Ekstedt runs from January 21 to March 20, 2016 at the Eleanor London Côte Saint-Luc Public Library Art Gallery.

Ekstedt will present his large-scale paintings depicting masses of many small lights and luminous forms in a series entitled Lodestar. The lights and forms evoke nighttime images of the earth from a bird’s eye view. The lights represent an interconnected system, like that of a living organism. In his work, the artist is concerned with the rapid and excessive population growth around the globe. 

A vernissage to mark the opening of this exhibit is on Thursday, January 21 at 7 pm.

Dennis Ekstedt lives and works in Montreal. He received his Diploma in Fine Arts in 1986 from Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in Vancouver, B.C and his M.F.A in 1993 from Concordia University. He was the Eastern Canada winner of the RBC Canadian Painting Competition in 2002 and his paintings are included in many public, corporate and private collections. He is currently represented by Herringer Kiss Gallery in Calgary, Alberta and Katharine Mulherin Contemporary Art Projects in Toronto, Ontario.
