About the Artist
Toronto, Canada-based painter and sculptor Chris Austin first exhbited with us as part of 2013's Northern Lights Canadian artist group exhibit and we instantly fell in love with his evocative, lively style and, well, bears. His works, often painted on reclaimed wooden surfaces and found objects, evoke both a love of nature and a striking range of emotion and expression.
We hosted Chris' first US solo exhibit in February 2016 and we're excited to have him back for this new exhibit. Chris will be in attendance at the opening so stop in and say hi!
