salve, citizens!

it is with no small amount of pride that i make a much-delayed announcement concerning the new solo exhibition of my work.

this exhibit, entitled crossing the rubicon, will take place in toronto at gallery 1313 in their “process” gallery. proprætorian works, new and old, will be on display from october 16 through october 27.

i have decided to call this show crossing the rubicon not as a proclamation of civil war, as the historical act signified, but as a proclamation – a throwing down of a gauntlet that proclaims this war i wage is an “all or nothing” situation. and in the words of GAIVS IVLIVS CÆSAR, who was the original crosser of the rubicon “alea iacta est.” [latin: the die is cast]

the gallery is located at 1313 queen street west, in toronto. an opening reception for the entire gallery will be from 8-10pm on october 17 and is by invitation only, so if you wish to attend, let me know.

a grand day at atelier proprætoria! i hope to see you there.


“welcome home, professor…”

salve, citizens.

professor lambert and his homonculus… have returned from their first ever exhibition at the people’s gallery (coincidentally, the gallery’s first exhibition as well). even though the professor did not actually sell, he did receive lots of compliments and comments and even the odd repeat visitor.

now that he’s back, everything is being focused on the art show in august. propraetor’s first solo art show in nine years will be a one-night engagement on the second floor of the button factory in waterloo, ontario. the event, called entrenchment: an artistic offensive, will be launching at 7pm on august 31. prints will be available for sale, as well as over a dozen originals. more news as the event draws nigh.

in the meantime, follow propraetor on twitter and facebook and keep checking back here for updates.
