Beach Arts Scene: ‘Pro-Pollinator Show’ and ‘A Different View’ on now

Catch abstracts by Gail Williams at Studio 888 through Oct. 1, 2017.

The Beach Garden Society (BGS) has coordinated a Pro-Pollinator Show at Aboveground Art Supply, 1842 Queen St. E., on now until Sept 24.

On display will be work from local girl guides, created during a workshop led by BGS member Marilyn Walsh earlier this year. BGS members have also submitted art on bees, birds and butterflies. This is in conjunction with the group’s work with the David Suzuki Foundation’s Butterflyway Project, which sees public spaces transformed into beautiful pollinator gardens.

It’s hard to let go of summer. But one way to make it bearable is to look to the future, particularly the annual holiday show put on by two Kingston Road galleries.

Cobalt Gallery and Yellow House Gallery and Framing have announced an open call for artists for their Precious Snowflakes Holiday Art Sale and Festival, set to hang at the neighbouring galleries November 17 through January 28.

The annual show features a fun holiday party and work from a number of local artists. More information at

Studio 888, 2359 Queen St. E., presents A Different View, featuring work by contemporary artists Gail Williams and Marlene Pape, on now through Oct. 1. Pape’s luscious and whimsical landscapes are perfectly paired with Williams’s playful yet dramatic abstract work, resulting in a distinct and fiery show.

Studio 888 is open Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 2 to 6 p.m., Saturday and Sunday from 12 to 4 p.m., or by chance and appointment. More information at or 416-200-5551.
