Come Closer - Proudly Presented by Core Realty Group Inc.

On Thursday June 18th, we at Core Realty Group Inc. are hosting an art opening, AND YOU'RE ALL INVITED!

We are proud to present "Come Closer", a selection of relief print works by the lovely Pamela Dodds. In this collection, Dodds seeks to mirror, question and challenge norms of assumptions around gender, memory and history, primarily through figurative-based imagery in linocut and woodcut prints. Stop by our office at 747 Queen Street East after 7pm to take in the work of this magnificent queer artist and enjoy a bevvy and some chats. 

Book the date! I would love to see you there. xoxo
