Darlene Cole | Velvet

Darlene Cole at Bau-Xi Gallery

Darlene Cole | Velvet 
December 1-15, 2018
340 Dundas St West, Toronto
Opening Reception: Saturday, December 1, 2-4 pm. Artist in Attendance.

In her latest exhibition, Velvet, Darlene Cole pulls inspiration from the sensual, warm, and theatrical associations with the luxurious fabric. Cole revels in the velvety textures of water, which is presented full of emotion; either invitingly calm or full of fury. Rendered with confident gestural marks, her spirited figures unravel and meld into the surroundings. The delicate yet powerful works evoke emotion, as Cole navigates the viewer through time and memory.

Cole's work is extensively collected across Canada and internationally. Notable public collections include: The Agnes Etherington Art Centre, Tom Thomson Art Gallery, the K.F. Preueter Collection of Canadian Art, Royal Bank of Canada, CIBC, OCAD University, Fairmont Hotels (Toronto, Montreal, Banff), and Manulife Financial. 


Established in 1965, Bau-Xi Gallery represents both Canadian and International artists, exhibiting Modern and Contemporary painting, photography, and sculpture in three art galleries in Toronto and Vancouver.

We are pleased to provide a range of fine art services including art consultation, in-home trials, delivery, installation, art rental, crating, and shipping.
