ST CATHARINES – 13th Street Gallery located at 1776 Fourth Avenue in St. Catharines is proud to announce its next exhibition Biscay Bay and Beyond featuring works by the late David Bolduc and Blaise DeLong which opens on Saturday October 31st, 2020. Biscay Bay was the place where
David Bolduc and Blaise DeLong would escape to from the city. This exhibition honours their time together and will exhibit a survey of works by both artists.
David Bolduc was born in Toronto in 1945. He attended the Ontario College of Art for one year and later studied at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts School (1964-65) with Jean Goguen. Bolduc’s paintings are often punctuated by a centralized image which creates a duality and dynamic equilibrium within the painting itself. Both colour and form are essential to sensation and meaning in Bolduc’s paintings. The figure’s iconic position in the center of the painting is rich with the possibility for metaphor.
Blaise DeLong was born in Niagara Falls Ontario, she studied at the New School of Art in Toronto during it’s heyday in the late 1960’s. DeLong travelled extensively with her late husband, David Bolduc, setting up studios in Paris, Essaouira, Zancudo and Biscay Bay NL as well as in Montreal and Toronto. DeLong’s frenetic grids speak of the geometry of urban architecture, while vertical and horizontal rhythms resonate landscape. She describes her work as a meditation, an effort to distill experience.
Blaise DeLong will be present on Saturday, October 31st, 2020 from 2pm to 5pm
The exhibition will continue until Saturday December 5, 2020
