GIVE PEACE A CHANCE





We are in the last day of our special exhibition. Although it was only an 8-day show, it has been a terrific and popular adventure. Open for 24 hours/day since May 26th we have been visited by people who were at the original event, hundreds of fans and even a few visitors asking “who are those people in the photographs?”!


We are grateful to Joan Athey for the opportunity of creating this exhibition and excited to have such a wonderful beginning with our representation of this work by Gerry Deiter.


Yesterday was a real trip. Kim Mitchell was live with his Q107 radio show at the gallery. While being interviewed I kept thinking how funny it was to have him at sitting at the very desk I used through high school working on essays while listening to songs of his like DIAMONDS DIAMONDS. It was also great to stand in front of photographs taken by Gerry 40 years ago to the day while listening to the recording playing in the background.


The work of John Lennon and Yoko Ono continue to inspire a growing audience, long may that continue.
