"In her exhibition of new work entitled The Future is Female, Angela Grossmann investigates the female form and the ways in which girls and women are shaped by both deeply personal experiences and socially prescribed notions of female status, sexuality, femininity and conventional beauty." - Danielle Egan
Angela Grossmann graduated from Emily Carr College (now University) of Art + Design in 1985. That year she was introduced as one of the Vancouver Art Gallery's "Young Romantic" painters most likely to influence the course of painting in that decade. After earning an MFA at Concordia University and teaching at Ottawa University, Grossmann returned to Vancouver in 1997 to paint and to teach at Emily Carr. She has exhibited widely across Canada, the United States and Europe and her work is in numerous public and private collections.

Leurs stratégies et sujets engagent directement les méthodes conventionnelles et contemporaines de l'enregistrement et du reportage d'histoire. Chaque artiste contrôle la trajectoire de sa production à travers des distances temporelles et géographiques, déterminant son entrée dans le discours public. Le point de réception des représentations obtenues sera l'espace de la galerie. De cette trajectoire limitée découle un public restreint. Cependant, cette limitation dessine un cadre dans lequel les gestes sont autant symboliques que stratégiques.

In April the Art Connection Group is pleased to present recent works by Daniel Dubois at the University of Toronto Faculty Club. Dan's new collection includes his renowned Toronto cityscapes along with new regional landscapes from Algonquin, Kingston, Lake Huron and areas of southwestern and eastern Ontario. Born in Montreal, Dan is a representational painter who brings a unique eye and an impressionist interpretation of his subject. His paintings capture the magnificence of the natural landscape, its ever changing light, big skies and serenity. His interpretive streetscapes are colourful, sometimes edgy, moody, reflecting the energy of the city.
You are invited to an entertaining night of Art & Jazz at the Opening Reception on Wednesday, April 11th, 6 – 9 pm, in the Main Lounge & Pub, University of Toronto Faculty Club, 41 Willcocks St. Toronto M5S 1C7 (east of Spadina, 2 north of College).

Dinner is served until 8 pm and non-member prices are waived.
