An exciting show in two parts - Eight young Montreal artists will be showing their most recent works in two summer exhibitions of painting, drawing, sculpture and photography at Optica […]

The artists are as follows:
Donna McAlear: coloured, linear field paintings reflecting her personal space through relationships of size and depth.

Dean Ailertson: works directly in welded steel using materials donated by local scrap dealers.

Ron Reisler: finds a means of expressing the dichotomy he finds within himself; line and ground, chaos and quietude.

Peter Melville: 3-dimensional constructions in a variety of materials.

Regen O,Connor: says ‘I just try to keep myself interested, one move leads to another, if I’m concentrating hard enough.’

Lynn Kobayashi: takes photographs of things from her immediate environment to which she is attracted in every possible sense.

Bruce Emo: art is his attempt to understand the historical perspective of how one sees.

Harlan Johnson: works with different materials both flat and sculptural.
