On Now

UpTown Gallery is closed for the duration of Ontario's Stay-at-Home order.

The current show, Outer Limits, will remain in place once the gallery re-opens.

Stay safe!



Outer Limits

Outer Limits, a new exhibit at Uptown Gallery, showcases recent works from Featured Artists Laurie Spieker and Shane Langlade.

Through paint and glass, Shane and Laurie explore worldly and emotional limits. Echoing the retro black and white TV series, Outer Limits, they dial the volume knob, control orientation, mutate imagery, and fine-tune focus and clarity. There is nothing wrong with your eyes!

About the Artists

For this show, Shane’s loose brushwork and vibrant colours invite the viewer deeper into his pieces. Provocative, frightening, freeing, and fanciful, explore the Outer Limits of our inner minds and emotions along with new perspectives on the distant worlds of 1950’s science fiction. Don’t always trust what you see.

As the pandemic places us all at our “outer limits,” we are far removed from our normal. With kiln-formed, painterly expression, Laurie’s Pandemic Portraits express our longing for the normal that is behind us and the chaotic yearning for the new normal that awaits us.

The show runs from Tuesday, April 6, to Sunday, June 6, 2021.
