NEW EXHIBIT – Ecstatic-Scapes by Alan Glicksman – Opens September 12

Ad image

Gallery de Boer is pleased to announce our upcoming exhibit “Ecstatic-Scapes” by Alan Glicksman opening September 12 and will run until October 31st.

Canadian painter Alan Glicksman has a highly expressive creative energy that encompasses his paintings.  His Abstract Expressionist style focuses on the mythical and mysterious beings from his inner and outer worlds.

Glicksman left the busy Toronto scene in 2005 and moved to Owen Sound where he found the rugged landscape and endless water his new inspiration.  He does “en plein air paintings in the field and will later create large canvases in his studio that capture the same essence.
Alan feels Sometimes I express my inner world – birds, beasts, humans. Sometimes I express the outer world – trees, flowers, sky. Sometimes the two worlds merge into lively bursts of energy.”

Throughout his long artistic career Alan has achieved various accomplishments and has been highly praised for a fresh original approach, a powerful palette of spellbinding colours and for capturing the spirit of what he is experiencing.   Alan studied in Toronto and New York City at The Ontario College of Art and Design, at the University of Guelph and the University of Toronto.

The exhibit at Gallery de Boer – Fine Art called “Ecstatic-Scapes” features a glimpse of Alan’s artistic career over the past twenty five years.  It showcases a wide variety of works that highlight Glicksman’s unique perspective on expressing his honest and personal artworks. The show features earlier works along with re-worked paintings created within the last year.  With the wide variety of stylistic interpretations from Glicksman, there is a piece for everyone. The show offers unique original artwork for everyone’s budget. This is a great opportunity to add to your personal collection with a piece from a distinguished Canadian abstract painter.

There will be a special opening reception on September 12 from 6-9pm. Please join us for refreshments and meet the artist. Please R.S.V.P to this event.

NEW Exhibit Coming Soon!

Gallery de Boer is currently in the process of organizing and installing the next exhibit coming up in September!

We will be making a formal announcement on the artist and show dates within the next week. The show will start mid September and run until the end of October. We are very excited to showcase this distinguished abstract painter!

In the meantime, we are featuring new works by artists such as Valerie Nichol, Roman Zuzuk and many others in the main gallery. Beautiful and lively colours await you as you step inside the gallery!

Stay tuned as we announce the next major exhibit at Gallery de Boer!
