Marlene Pape explores Skylights at Arts on Queen in October

Arts on Queen, 2198 Queen St. E., is pleased to present Skylights, the first appearance at the gallery by Marlene Pape, Oct. 1 through 31. Pape’s acrylics “articulate the natural beauty found in various skylines during different times of the day.” This exhibit features paintings that “capture an ambiance of spiritual proportions, and allows the viewer to reflect upon the complexity of the world with simplistic subject matter.” Pape’s art is found in more than 300 private, corporate and public collections around the world. This will be an excellent opportunity to see her work in this area.

Cobalt Gallery, 870A Kingston Rd., presents The Pin-up Artist, new drawings by Joanne Filletti, from Sept. 30 through Oct. 29. Drawing her inspiration from the celebrated commercial art of Gil Elvgren from the 1930s to 1970s, Filletti re-examines the traditional pin-up girl.
“In spite of feminist advances, we are still confronted with conflicting media messages,” says Filletti in her artist’s statement. “To accept that one’s being is always subject to the scrutiny and judgment of others, is to operate in a constant state of uncertainty. The Pin-up Artist is a ‘pictorial autobiography unfolding in the present’.”
