A Dynamic Collective of Local Artists

Shows at UpTown Gallery


“Exploration,” the new exhibition at UpTown Gallery, features recent works by Ida Tong, Gordy Ess, and Christine Murray.

The show runs from Tuesday, September 21 until Sunday, November 14..

About the Artists:

Gordy Ess's work is characterized by texture and the bold use of colour. Energetic and multi layered; each abstraction brings the viewer to a new frame of mind.

The title Exploration reflects who Christine Murray is as a felting artist. She is constantly exploring her medium, and these pieces invite you to imagine how art can intersect with human experience. I

Ida Tong’s recent works explore the philosophical aspects of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the cross fertilization of our past, present, and future. Most importantly, Ida wants to reveal the interconnection between apes, humans, and robots as our progress “making.”
