Sally Thurlow is a multi-disciplinary artist. Among other projects, she is presently working on a series of sculptures brought into focus by a six week Artist in Residency program by the sea, in Newfoundland’s Gros Morne National Park. Her solo sculptural exhibition, Canoe Dreamings, finished a two year tour of six Ontario public galleries in 2008, and this current work is closely related in terms of cultural and environmental concerns. Painting and photography play a role in some of the works, as they do in all Sally’s art practice.
Sally has been exhibiting since the early ’90’s. Recent highlights are exhibits with The Iris Group in the Adirondacks in Saranac Lake, at The Red Head Gallery, Toronto with The Iris Group in EDGE and with other Red Head Gallery members in a group show in San Miguel, Mexico called Deviant Detours.
Sally received a BA majoring in Fine Arts from the University of Toronto, with significant study at Ontario College of Art and Trent University. She has given numerous talks and workshops at Trent U and in schools and public galleries. She has been the recipient of four Ontario Arts Council Awards. Sally is a member of The Red Head Gallery artists’ collective, and a founding member of The Iris Group, a seven-strong artist collective based in the Greater Toronto Area. Sally lives beside Lake Ontario, an hour east from her hometown of Toronto.
