Winter ’18 Show: Perfect art for home or office

A welcome respite from these chilly, winter days is a visit to the warm and welcoming environs of TAG Gallery to enjoy new works from five excellent artists in our Winter ’18 Group Show. There is a 40-year range of experience in the Group, and with their diverse backgrounds and styles, you are sure to discover, finally, that one piece of art which will be perfect for your home or office.
 
Fred Riley is a self-taught Hamilton artist whose work strikes an emotional chord by creating a the sense of mystery about his subjects. Nancy Haskell, a well-known Niagara artist and photographer, offers a series of vivid and stylized portraits of women which ‘come alive’ on the wall. You will also find wonderfully-rendered, large landscapes from Sueda Akkor of St. Catharines, who decided to step away from her career as a health-care professional to take up the challenge of painting full-time.
 
And we welcome back watercolourist Prudence Smith and abstract-landscape artist Hanna MacNaughtan who have been favourites of clients and visitors at TAG Gallery. The energy of their creativity will help to chase away your winter chills.
 
The Gallery also features art jewellery; bronze, soapstone, and limestone sculptures; and glass, medal, and transfer art. And we are pleased to offer a viewing of selected pieces from our extensive and informative collection of Historical Images of Niagara.
