SOURCE: THE GALLERY
ST CATHARINES – 13th Street Gallery located at 1776 Fourth Avenue in St. Catharines had just turned a year old on November 2, 2020 but celebrations will have to be on the down low considering the current climate with COVID-19. The Gallery will be exhibiting its annual group show entitled ABSTRACTED TOGETHER opening on Saturday December 12, 2020. To keep things interesting the exhibition will be changing up bi-weekly featuring different artists; kicking off the show is local artist Floyd Elzinga at the front gallery. In the main gallery the focus will be on some of the most significant paintings, sculptures, and artists from John Mann’s collection, also included are some artists new to the gallery.
Floyd Elzinga received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design in Halifax, NS. He was initially drawn to steel, due to its malleable, plastic and forgiving nature, and he continues to utilize its range of colours as well as the way light plays off the surface. He has been exploring traditional metal working techniques to create textures and depth the same way a painter would use a paintbrush. Rotten stumps, broken branches, invasive species, ravaged trees as well as polar opposites and dysfunctional objects are the things that excite Floyd Elzinga. He has made a career out of highlighting and glorifying these through three dimensional sculpture, relief work and environmental installations for over 15 years. Current themes in his work focus on broken landscapes, portraits of trees and the aggressive nature of seeds
This exhibition will continue until Spring 2021
