A Survey of Paintings: Tim Cosens and Barry Trower
December 11-22
The Arts Project, North Gallery
Opening Reception: Friday Dec 14, 7-9pm.

Barry Trower – I was born in London and grew up near the banks of the Thames in London West. I studied draughting, then drawing, painting and printmaking at H. B. Beal. I have worked as a draughtsman, freelance patent illustrator, sign painter, poster designer and book illustrator, all the while producing paintings, drawings and sculpture. My work has been exhibited at the London Regional Art Gallery/ Museum London, St. Thomas Regional Art Gallery, The Grand Theatre, One London Place and other venues, and can be found in private collections here and in Europe.

Timothy Cosens -- Tim lives and maintains a studio in London, Ontario, Canada. He finished his formal arts training at H. B. Beal Technical School and graduated from this locally renowned arts program in 1978 receiving first prize for the highest standing in drawing. London, Ontario, especially from the years forward of 1980, has maintained a vital and experimental arts community, this climate of forward thinking has formed a strong backdrop towards Tim’s research as a painter who maintains an interest in many international, historical, and contemporary developments within the visual arts. His own work through the years has become increasingly disciplined towards showing simplicity within complexity by looking at the nature of phenomena as seen in the parkland and rural sites of London and Southwestern Ontario.
