The Boat Show at Wynick/Tuck (401 Richmond West), to September 13. 416-504-8716. Rating: NNN Rating: NNN
The most fascinating series of works at Wynick/Tuck 's Boat Show is by Gerald Ferguson . These pieces examine mark twain - the depth gauge, not the man. "Mark twain" meant "two fathoms," the minimum depth for the safe operation of riverboats on the Mississippi. Each of Ferguson's drawn circles represents part of a unit, such as a half twain.
Hung in a row, the circle works are beautiful abstracts with a very interesting story to tell.
