Happily Until Their Deaths: Ryan Travis Christian, David Jien, Adrienne Kammerer, Toshio Saeki @ Narwhal Projects, TorontoJuxtapoz // Thursday, October 22, 2015
We are really excited about this one: Ryan Travis Christian, David Jien, Toshio Saeki, and Adrienne Kammerer are all in a fantastic looking show, "Happily Until Their Deaths," opening at Narwhal Projects in Toronto on October 20. The show is based around what curator Kristin Weckworth notes as “Happily Until Their Deaths” being once a popular concluding pronouncement to fairy tales in the 1600s. This eventually softened into the more familiar “happily ever after”.

Narwhal Projects is pleased to present Brooklyn-based, American artist Paul Wackers's first solo exhibition with the gallery. Almost Somewhere features a new series of paintings by Wackers, furthering his representations of domestic accumulations and quiet collections: now with soft intercessions on the part of abstraction, there are moments that sigh across his new works with gentle energetic movement.

California's Souther Salazar headed up to Toronto recently for a new solo show, You and Me (and the Mouse in the Moon) at NARWHAL Projects. The show comprises of drawings, paintings, and sculpture, all featuring Salazars' playful styles and signature characters. Throughout the show, we follow the two protagonists through Salazar's universes. Consider it a journey show.
