A chance meeting with Dale Chihuly in November 1988, crystallized into him opening my gallery in the Exchange Tower in May 1989. From the beginning, it was meant to be; initiating a 23-year professional collaboration and friendship that has enriched the Canadian art landscape. It has been my honour to present Chihuly's work and to mark every gallery milestone with him.
In September 1999, I opened an exhibition of his large-scale installations in the Exchange Tower on the eve of his Chihuly in the Light of Jerusalem exhibition in Israel.
I followed that with a spectacular gallery opening in the historic Distillery District in November 2002.
In June 2005, I was delighted to be one of the first galleries to exhibit Chihuly's new seriers of work, Mille Fiori, in the Distrillery Gallery.
And now with my latest gallery venture, partnering with Chihuly again, we unveil artwork bringing a new energy to my space at The Warehouse Gallery.
