Border Crossings was pleased to be part of Canada’s largest international art fair, Art Toronto, this past weekend. The booth was devoted entirely to the work of the Nova Scotia-born, Berlin-based artist, Ambera Wellmann. Ambera Wellmann received her MFA from the University of Guelph in 2016. She won the Joseph Plaskett Foundation Award in the same year and the RBC Painting Prize the following year. Our installation at Art Toronto was a focused showcase of an artist making waves on the international scene. To read more about Ambera Wellmann’s work order a copy of Border Crossings Issue 139 and Issue 145.
Border Crossings displayed three Wellmann drawings and a single painting at the Art Toronto Booth. We launched a special limited edition porcelain plate by the artist entitled “Tock Tock,” 2018. “Tock Tock” is currently available exclusively through Border Crossings on our website. Get yours here.
Border Crossings also launched its 2018 special issue on painting at Art Toronto.
