In addition to being a professor and writer, Gary Pearson is also a painter.
His work will be featured in a solo exhibition at Winsor Gallery this coming February.

**The Point Is exhibition brings together the work of five contemporary painters, all working in a large scale and in an energized zone that hovers between representation and pure abstraction. Traditionally, abstraction and representation have been seen as opposite poles in the world of art, but in the last ten or twenty years, artists have been blurring the distinctions between the two ways of working. In this show, visitors will be able to contemplate examples of recent work by five very disparate artists: the five are from different generations, have different sources and influences, and live in various parts of Canada.
