Ray Caesar’s “A Tainted Virtue” Opening
Gallery House artist Ray Caesar presents a double solo show at the CHG Circa Gallery titled “A Tainted Virtue” opening on April 19th. Five of his new works will be making their North American debut including a newly released edition.
Saturday, April 19th 7-10 pm
Exhibition runs till May 10th
Caesar’s recognizable female figures will grace the gallery with their delicate elegance veiled by a subtle sinister aura. His subjects are aesthetically striking in every way, from their milky skin to their extravagant ensembles. These dreamy representations are even more intriguing as details become more apparent, leading the viewer into a world of dark fantasy.
“A tainted virtue is just a few words that describe the nature of me and my work,” explains Caesar. “I have virtues, morality and kindness but my past was in part a mixture of amazing, wonderful experiences tainted with demoralizing pain and cruelty. I have a disorder called dissociative identity disorder, and although this can be quite challenging, I also see my ability to dissociate as a skill and as a benefit in life. It’s why I communicate in pictures. I live partly in another world of my own creation. This other world is a Paracosm, and my work is a series of windows into the world I have created in my own mind over a lifetime. Trying to live in two worlds is a challenge. Pictures and images allow me to work with that tainted virtue in such a way to turn a kind of ugliness into something beautiful.”

Contact Festival Toronto – Myron Zabol
Saturday May 3, 2:00-5:00 pm
Exhibition from May 3 – May 31, 2014
Myron Zabol exhibits a series of Platinum/Palladium prints. 78/46 prints are subliminal and have an unique appearance. They are amazingly luminous, and even appear to be three dimensional. Platinum prints possess a beauty, depth, and permanence valued by photographers, collectors, and museums.
The beautiful, subliminal qualities of Zabol’s work includes: architecture, floral and a rare look into the Iroquois Six Nations Confederacy which was a travelling exhibition that included the McMichael Canadian Art Gallery and was permanently archived by Canada’s National Gallery, The Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography and curated by the Iroquois Woodland Cultural Center.
Anita Kunz Solo Show – Italy
Gallery House artist, Anita Kunz and Canadian darling is opening a solo show titled “ The Bestiary” which is scheduled alongside fellow Ray Caesar solo show “The Trouble with Angels” for an opening reception on February 14, 2014 at 7:00 pm for the public reception at the Dorothy Circus Gallery Rome, Italy with both artists in attendance.
Anita Kunz has been widely published for over three decades on an international platform. Kunz’s paintings have been concerned with political systems, social justice and the human relationship to nature. Her newer body of work concerns the animal kingdom and and how we relate to and live within it. The Bestiary is a special curated exhibition showcasing a comprehensive exploration of beasts both found in rural and city locations and those fantastical mythical creatures that are only discovered in the land of Kunz. She believes that since we share an enormous amount of genetic material with other creatures and by comparing and contrasting, we can begin to understand our very nature.
Anita is highly collected in many institutions these include the permanent collections of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Rome; Norman Rockwell Museum and showcased in several art fairs across the UK and more. She has received the Order of Canada, her country’s highest civilian honour and was the first Canadian and the first woman to have a show of her work at the Library of Congress in Washington. She has also recently received the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal of Honour.
Ray Caesar Solo Show & Museum
Ray Caesar of Gallery House presents “The Trouble with Angels” alongside Canadian darling Anita Kunz “ The Bestiary”. Both shows are scheduled to open February 14, 2014 at 7:00 pm for the public reception at the Dorothy Circus Gallery Rome, Italy with both artists in attendance. This will be followed by February 15, 2014 an institutional show at the Palazzo Saluzzo Paesana, Turin Italy featuring Ray Caesar.
Ray Caesar works are known for being a reflection of his subconscious mind and path to self-discovery. The viewer of his work is often left to their own devices to discover a hidden clock, scissor or skeleton within other strange things. The Trouble with Angels continue on this theme, disclosing in a dream like manner the past by reflecting on the passage of time. For example, The Forgotten is a place where our memories live and may lie dormant for years but as Ray expalins “it still exists, even though it is no longer acknowledged…a certain smell, a sight of a grin with decaying teeth, or a note played on a piano can suddenly find that place in each of us, like a key unlocking the door”.
Ray is widely coveted and he is considered the grandfather of digital art having been collected by museums world wide including Bristol museum; board of Trustee selection of the MOMA, Guggenheim and the Metropolitan Museum in New York.

Truth, Light & Matter – Oct 3rd Annual Exhibit in Toronto Canada
Our Annual exhibition opened on October 3, 2013 and continues until November 23, 2013 with hours and appointments listed under the Contact section. It’s been an incredible year –at Gallery House we are currently unlike other existing entities in the art world. We only cater to senior and high end established artists to help grow and foster their work.
Sometimes I feel as if the concept is so new it is difficult to clearly understand what this actually means. We are different because we ensure constant prominence and exhibition is taking place internationally as Gallery House deliberately partners with commercial galleries, institutions and special projects to exhibit the artists works. We manage all the nitty gritty details from strategic planning, communication, negotiation, media/reproduction, contracts, appraisal, insurance, shipping, coordination from concept to exhibition to collection of funds and return. Together with the artists we handle their inventory distribution and ensure rotation of the works of art. As such, the artist is alleviated from the above and can focus on creating their best works.
The venture was formed after working in the fine art world for over 12 years in institutions, as a consultant, commercial galleries and art fairs. Fine arts is a passion of mine and Gallery House over the few years has garnered attention from some of the top institutions including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, US and Bristol Arts Museum, England and numerous partnered galleries in over 8 countries and growing.
Gallery House means we value our artists and our passion inspries us to bring you the best work while insuring the integrity of the artists rights are intact.
Thank you for believing and supporting us.

July 12-Aug 5 Vered Gallery Art on the Edge Annual Exhibition featuring Brian Richer
Brian Richer, Marble & Fluorescent Tube 8 x 5 x 1.5″
Brian Richer of Gallery House is proudly exhibiting at the Vered Gallery Annual show Art on the Edge. Richers’s work is depicted above and is showcased on black matte pedestals with a fluorescent tube that emits light when placed on the base of the marble. As his works play upon the intersection between art, technology and science the tubes also remain lit when “waving it above” the base of the marble giving Richer’s work a sense of cool magic.
