DUALITY Ted Coldwell’s solo exhibition OPENING RECEPTION: SUNDAY, JULY 4 at 2:00 p.m. at ViewPoint Gallery

DUALITY is my first show of the year – and it’s special! It’s TWO shows under the same name. DUALITY explores my abstract/conceptual work in July and features my studio art in August.

DUALITY presents where I’ve been and points in the directions I’m going – whether it’s into the world to create abstract images out of details or into the studio to create an image on an empty table or a blank monitor.

An Opening Reception is planned for SUNDAY, JULY 4 at 2:00 p.m.

I would love to see you there!



ViewPoint Gallery is adhering to all COVID-19 protocols as directed by the provincial government. Please see the gallery’s Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram accounts for up-to-date scheduling information.
