Painting with Pixels: Mostly FloralsSolo Art Exhibit
June 1 to July 5, 2023

Come meet Visual Artist-in-residence Helaine Becker at her June exposition, Painting with Pixels: Mostly Florals.

Helaine Becker is both a digital artist and the bestselling author of more than 90 books for children, including the #1 Canadian national bestseller and “enduring Canadian Christmas classic” A Porcupine in a Pine Tree (Scholastic Canada). Her artwork has been exhibited in two  Society  of  Canadian  Artists  juried shows, Toronto's Aird  Gallery (juried shows), the Ontario  Society  of  Artists  juried show, Keller-Williams Gallery Space (two-person show),  The  Square  Foot Show  (juried show), Neilson Park Creative Centre, Emergence Gallery.

As well as being Visual Artist-in-residence at the Toronto Heliconian Club, Helaine is also an active member of the North Toronto Art Group , Artists Network, Don Valley Art Club and Lawrence Park Art Collective.

Of her artwork (or as she says, art fun), she writes: "My current art process is entirely digital, i.e., I paint on a computer. Nevertheless, my pieces are still hand-painted. I use a stylus as my brush, and pixels as my paint. On the macro scale, digital painting fits somewhere between art photography and classical painting techniques – the synthesis of O’Keeffe and Stieglitz, if you will. On the micro, my own digital artwork also exists in a liminal in-between space, shifting back and forth between abstract and representational, concrete/physical (the Print) and metaphysical (the Pixel)."

Reception: Saturday June 3, 2 to 5 pm

Opening: Wednesday June 14, 4 to 7:30 pm
