The Art Dealers Association of Canada Inc. (ADAC) is a national not-for-profit organization founded in 1966. ADAC is the only National Association of art dealers representing artists throughout Canada. ADAC maintains a high standard of connoisseurship and adherence to ethical practice within the profession. Dealers are selected for their knowledge and scholarship in their respective fields of expertise.

The ADAC mandate includes stimulating the art market in Canada, and encouraging the awareness of the visual arts both nationally and abroad.

The Stephen Bulger Gallery is pleased to present “Experimental Lake” our first solo exhibition of work by Canadian artist Guillaume Simoneau.

Canada’s reputation as a caring country suffered immensely when funding for scientific research, designed to benefit all nations, was cancelled under the last Conservative government. Guillaume Simoneau’s photographs are like signposts in the wilderness. They are not memorial in nature but sing nature’s praises alongside human handiwork.

A fugitive storyline is to be pieced together by us out of the folklore of the moment, wherein the artist and we, his viewers, find ourselves on the cusp and hungry for answers. This compendium of images is unhinged from the moorings of conventional narrative readings. They speak of travel, pilgrimage, epiphany and discovery with a simple, selfless stoicism. Time of day, experiments out on the water, and scientific equipment, all suggest an itinerary which is at once mysterious and immanent, pungent and rich.

Simoneau has stated about the project that “this body of work moves away from the omnipresent vanity found all around us these days and focus, at once, on the outside; on the idea of common good and necessary evil. The resulting work is presented not as a series about the Experimental Lakes Area (ELA) but as a compendium of images produced on location at the ELA and therefore infused by its spirit and beauty”.

Guillaume Simoneau (b. 1978, Québec) began his independent studies in photography after completing a diploma in applied science. Simoneau has exhibited his photographs internationally and today, his work can be found in a number of permanent collections including the Victoria & Albert Museum (London), the Museum of Fine Arts (Houston), and the Museum of Contemporary Photography (Chicago). His previous body of work, “Love and War” was exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Photography (Chicago) and Published by Dewi Lewis Publishing (UK). The related publication, introduced by Lisa J. Sutcliffe from the SFMoMA, was shortlisted for both First Book Award and European Publishers Award for Photography. His new series “Experimental Lake” will be published by MACK in 2017. Simoneau currently lives and works in Montreal.




On Saturday, April 1st, Mira Godard Gallery is pleased to open an exhibition of new paintings by ED BARTRAM. The artist will be present

“I have worked every summer for over fifty years in or near my Bartram Island studio, taking inspiration from the banded gneisses and migmatites of Georgian Bay’s Thirty Thousand Islands. My prints and paintings are not just of rocks and islands but are a testament to the primordial forces that created the nucleus of the continent, the Canadian Shield. My work interprets the forces of nature as revealed on these Precambrian surfaces, made visible by the cleansing and polishing power of ice and water.” -Ed Bartram 2017

ED BARTRAM was born in London, Ontario in 1938.

Long considered one of Canada's foremost painters and printmakers, Bartram received a B.A. from the University of Western Ontario and an M.A. in Fine Arts from the University of Toronto. Bartram was Printmaking Instructor at Central Technical School, Toronto (1971-1986) and Intaglio Instructor at The Ontario College of Art, Toronto (1985-2003).

ED BARTRAM's work can be found in numerous public, corporate and private collections in North America, Europe and Asia including: Art Gallery of Hamilton; Art Gallery of Ontario; Museum London; Tom Thomson Art Gallery, Owen Sound; Ernst and Young; Four Seasons Hotels; Fuji Bank, Japan; George Weston Ltd.; London Life Insurance; RBC Financial Group; Scotiabank; Sears Collection, Chicago and T.D. Financial.

Bartram's work has been exhibited extensively including a 20 year retrospective in 2001 at the Justina Barnicke Gallery, Hart House, University of Toronto and a solo exhibition "The Eye Within" at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection in 2009.

ED BARTRAM lives and works in King City, Ontario and Bartram Island, Georgian Bay and has been represented by Mira Godard Gallery for over 40 years.
