FOODIE TUESDAYS at Argyle Fine Art 

If you love ART and FOOD, may we suggest you take yourself and friends (especially those visiting the city) out on a tour with Local Tasting Tours!  The price is just $40.00 plus tax and includes a tasting stop at our the gallery in addition to a number of other delicious spots along the way. 

 OCTOBER

Nocturne is Saturday, October 14th, 6pm until Midnight! BUGS are taking over Argyle Fine Art on all levels of the gallery this year, with multiple artists creating painting, sculpture and mixed media works speaking to the theme of nature vs human and how we interact with the creepy-crawlies. 

  IN THE WINDOWS:
BUG STEP presented by LoHiFi Productions
An automated tribute to renowned insect hoofer Leg Vanier. Try to follow along as he demonstrates the classic time step!

 IN THE MAIN GALLERY:
Insecticide: Miyoshi Kondo

Insecticide explores our human interactions with insects. We are both dependent upon and destructive of each other and our environment. Gouache paintings depicting the collision of humans and insects will illuminate some of these ideas. It's the bees knees, the fly in the ointment, it's a bug's life! 



IN THE LOWER GALLERY:
The Entomologist: Damien Webb and Michelle St-Onge

Miniature artist Damien Webb and watercolour artist Michelle St-Onge will transform the lower gallery into a room of bugs under domes, in jars, boxes and terrariums made from paper and reclaimed objects.
