Punktures: An Art Exhibit

This image is no longer available

Some punks never grow up.

A dozen Toronto artists, aged 40 and over, are displaying their works at ‘Punktures’, an exhibit at Steam Whistle Gallery. The mixed medium art show featuring the work of these self described, ‘geezer punkers’, examines the values often attributed to the punk movement.

The gallery is part of the popular Steam Whistle Brewing, a brewery that produces premium pilsner, in the historic John Street Roundhouse, built in 1929 and was part of the repair facilities for steam locomotives of the Canadian Pacific Railway.

At the end of the exhibit run, one piece will be selected and housed in the gallery’s permanent collection.

Punktures is open to the public and runs until October 31st.

Steam Whistle Gallery, 255 Bremner Blvd., Toronto, Ontario.
