William Perehudoff in Montreal

What goes on behind closed doors?

The art of William Perehudoff in Montreal Exciting! My sisters and I have swooped into Montreal for our father’s tribute exhibition tonight at Han Art in swanky Westmount. This will be the last William Perehudoff exhibition of the year – we need to regroup – and there’s a lot going on behind the scenes, so […]

William Perehudoff – the show must go on

Remembering my dad

It’s strange when an art exhibition turns into a tribute. What most people at the opening for my father, William Perehudoff, at Newzones Gallery in Calgary didn’t realize is that my family had arranged this exhibition nearly a year ago.

Mourning in Saskatchewan

Snow painting by Catherine Perehudoff

I miss many things about Saskatchewan, some that are not even gone. I still miss the old Capitol Theatre in Saskatoon, the interior reminded me of Romeo and Juliet, and it was part of my childhood. Torn down for a mall. I miss my father, William Perehudoff, an artist, who of course was part of […]

Why abstract art is not valid

Prove yourself!

  Some arguments never die. The question “Is abstract art valid” raised its head again over the weekend while I was in Windsor, Ontario, for the opening of my father’s exhibition The Optimism of Colour: William Perehudoff, a retrospective. Two other shows opened at the Art Gallery of Windsor on Friday night, John Kissick’s A Nervous […]

Getting stood up at Poussin Gallery

Excuse me, do I know you?

When you haven’t seen someone for a few years, you wonder how much they’ve changed. That’s why I was giving the eye to every man at the recent art opening Colour and Substance at Poussin Gallery on oh-so-cool Bermondsey Street in London, England, the other night. Is that bad? I came to London for the […]
