Exhibit: 15 Years of a Stunning POV at the AGO!

AGO's Stephen Andrews POV Exhibition Review

A few weeks ago I visited the Art Gallery of Ontario to specifically see the amazing From the Forest to the Sea: Emily Carr in British Columbia exhibit. I had some time to kill afterwards, so I decided to visit the fourth floor's Stephen Andrews POV exhibit and I'm so glad I did.

I knew very little about Stephen Andrews and was not very familiar with his work, but after seeing POV, I have become a fan.

This is Toronto-based artist Stephen Andrew's largest solo exhibition to date, and the first at the AGO, his home-town art gallery. It spans the last 15 years of his 30+ year career. Visitors can see the progression that Andrew's art has taken and the time period it was created exploring a variety of topics.

I was surprised how I much I enjoyed this exhibit. It was wonderful, sometimes thought-provoking and stunning. A really cool mix of different medias. Stephen Andrews POV runs until August 30, 2015. Please visit AGO for more information.

P.s!: POV as well as Elevated: Contemporary Art in the AGO Tower is included with general admission, which means its free on Wednesday nights!

P.s,
Melanie!
