A Canadian gallery whose selection of artists I have long envied is Christopher Cutts Gallery in Toronto with masters like Mat Brown (hells yeah!), Xiao Guo Hui (above), Peggy Kouroumalos (recently featured here), Christy Langer and Richard Stipl (featured in PorcelLana Nervosa) in their collection, to just name a few.

The gallery now honours thirteen of its talents in a group show aptly entitled Bakers Dozen which opened on Thursday and will remain on show until March 5.

All of the artists mentioned above are amongst the exhibiting artists so this looks like a very promising show indeed.

On show: Feb 10 - Mar 5, 2011

Address: Christopher Cutts Gallery, 21 Morrow Avenue, Toronto, ON, M6R 2H9, Canada, tel: 416-532-5566, email: info@cuttsgallery.com | Directions

Toronto-born and Leipzig-based Peggy Kouroumalos belongs to that special breed of artists I like the most: The hermetically quiet ones who are rarely to be found on the interwebs but work all the harder and resurface when you least expect them to show you something truly magnificent and unique.

The other day, Peggy posted the complete Ferine series which, although exhibited the previous year in its entirety at Toronto's Christopher Cutts Gallery, has never been revealed online before.
