Partnership Announcement for TrépanierBaer Gallery and Feheley Fine Arts

For Immediate Release

February 18, 2020


TrépanierBaer Gallery and Feheley Fine Arts are delighted to announce a new partnership. The two galleries’ inaugural collaborative exhibition will be Discovering Oscar Cahén (1916-1956) opening April 2 through to May 10, 2020 at Centre Space in Toronto, located inside Feheley Fine Arts proper at 65 George Street in Toronto. A highlight of the exhibition will be Cahén’s rarely seen masterpiece The Warrior, completed before the artist’s untimely death in 1956.

The exhibition will be the first of many collaborations between the two galleries who are geographically located over 2,700 km away. “We are very excited about this partnership as it provides platforms for satellite shows in each other’s respective cities,” says Pat Feheley, Director of Feheley Fine Arts.

The work of abstract painter and illustrator Oscar Cahén has a history with Feheley Fine Arts, which traces back to Pat’s father M.F. (Budd) Feheley. Budd was a champion of the Canadian abstract artist group Painters Eleven of which Cahén was a founding member. “In fact, Pat’s father Budd first exhibited The Warrior in his gallery, the Park Gallery, in 1959,” says Yves Trépanier, co-Director of TrépanierBaer Gallery.

Now, over sixty years later, this extraordinary artwork circles back around to its Toronto roots at Feheley Fine Arts. “I can’t think of a better partner in Toronto,” says Trépanier.
