The world is full of opposites, wrong/right, good/evil, up/down, Black & White/Colour… Artist Jimmy Chiale seeks to bring a balance to that last pairing with his hand picked group of Toronto artists working under a common theme: Balanced Expressions. This unique show features 11 sets of work, each with 1 Black & White, and 1 colour piece among them. Each of these pairs was created specifically with a harmony between the two sides in mind, with each piece complimenting the other.
It was put forth as a sort …of challenge to these artists to try something a bit different, and broaden horizons. Participating artists include:
Phillip A. Saunders
Raquel Da Silva
and Malcom Yarde
We have ventured back in our history and recognized many of the great achievements accomplished by Black people. Each February we do this time and time again. But what of our distant future as Black people. This collection of art work explores future visions of our existence and evolution as people. Perhaps A Black take on science fiction through a lens of full vibrant colour. Join us at Accents as Danilo McDowell-McCallum travels down one path into the story of our future Black destiny.

“Starships and Angels” is the new solo exhibition by Toronto based artist Danilo McDowell McCallum. Danilo’s artwork explores the concept of afro-futurism through the use of his signature “blockhead” portraits of black artists. The exhibition is being held at 185 Augusta which is a gallery space located in Toronto’s Kensington market that is home to a collective of multi-disciplinary urban artists. This will be Danilo’s third solo show and builds off of the recent success of his “Black Future Month” exhibition which opened in February.
