The Latcham Gallery will host a solo exhibition of works by painter Travis Shilling, November 2 to December 9. Meet the artist at the opening reception of Customs: what you take and what you leave, Thursday, November 2 from 7 pm to 9 pm.
Travis Shilling’s paintings are inspired in equal parts by the world around him and the re-imagining of this world, where animals, spirit figures and the landscape take centre stage. For his solo exhibition at the Latcham Gallery, Shilling continues to explore ideas around adaptation and survival in both the natural and built environment. His practice is personal and instinctive, telling stories that not only reflect his experience of the landscape, but ruminate on the enduring spirit of the natural world and our place in it.
This exhibition is part of The Latcham Gallery’s ongoing commitment to provide a venue to show work by Indigenous artists from Ontario.
Travis Shilling was born in Rama, Ontario, where he currently lives and works. He is represented by Ingram Gallery in Toronto and his work has been exhibited in museums and public galleries in Canada and the United States.
The Latcham Gallery is a public art gallery dedicated to exhibiting contemporary art. The Gallery is located on the Main Street. This exhibition is supported by the UOIT (The University of Ontario Institute of Technology), Ontario Arts Council and the Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville.
