Two of Canada’s most unapologetic abstract artists will have their work featured in St. Catharines. 13th Street Gallery, located at 13th Street Winery, 1776 Fourth Ave., will be hosting an exhibition featuring the work of Carlo Amantea and Walter Redinger. The late Redinger was one of Canada’s preeminent sculptors during the late 60s and 70s. Born in Wallacetown, he grew up on a tobacco farm and would spend most of his life living in South Western Ontario. He had his first one-man show in 1963 and was an active sculptor for over 40 years. He was best known for his large organic fibreglass sculptures and fearless drawings, which will be on display at The Gallery. Redinger passed away in 2014. Amantea will be showing new works. His work expresses joyful wonder in nature’s beauty through the combination of colour, images and textures. The exhibition officially opened on June 10 and will run until Saturday, July 8.
