Introducing David Adshade, plus works by Lila Rose Kole and Sculpture by Fred Gearhart
Industrial Abstract Impressionism
David Adshade was the recipient of the Art Gallery of Ontario Scholarship and won the Peoples Choice Award at the 2012 Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition. A gradual shift in focus and desire over the past few years has brought David into the realm of Industrial Abstract Impressionism. This approach involves the exploration of metal based paints with applied reactive solutions combined with traditional art materials. This leaves a truly stunning effect, both industrial looking yet aesthetically pleasing to the senses.

“Eye Loves Pharrell” from the mind of artist
“HELLO! I am Sarah. I love Pharrell. He makes me smile. And if he keeps moving forward, I will follow. I am an artist and bright leader of vibrant color, heart and mind inspired by Pharrell’s creative force. I hold on to the last of the faith that I have left. Everyday I push forward with courage into the next. I am faced with challenges many will never understand but hopefully will respect. I still remain to have a beautiful heart. I have a schizoaffective brain and eye.”

Edison’s 2373 Professor Ave.
I do most my art on wood transferring my images onto them. It’s a unique process of staining, sanding and waiting. All photography is mine unless I rediscovered it in the archives. Wood is very unique making my work personal and one of a kind, and I love working with people’s ideas.
