I'm New Here: Jake Sherman Solo Exhibition


May is already creeping in at Nuvango Gallery, and we’re beyond excited to be presenting the first ever solo exhibition by local Toronto photographer Jake Sherman as part of the Contact Photography Festival.  I’m New Here invites you experience life through the eyes of Jake Sherman, a born and bred Toronto artist.

Art Outright: Meet Ness Lee


Ness Lee is an illustrator, painter, ceramicist and maker of all sorts. Her work is equally adorable as it is cheeky, often featuring sumo wrestlers, snacks and saucy parties.

Ness: My studio space contributes heavily into my work. I suppose it is more like being in a comfortable environment free of my self conscious. If you ever see it is...
