Janieta Eyre must have been a very interesting child. In her staged self-portrait photographs she typically looks like a dysfunctional Alice in Wonderland. Discover what rabbit hole Janieta has fallen down this time around. October 10 to November 16 at Christopher Cutts Gallery, 21 Morrow. 416-532-5566.
Found And The Familiar showcases 11 varied and engaging artists -- including Barbara Astman, Max Dean, Sara Angelucci, Clint Griffin and Chris Curreri -- who have cut, stitched, photocopied and combined snaps to tell stories of loss and loneliness that contrast with the happy shots in your own personal album (except the ripped photos of your ex). October 17 to November 16 at Gallery TPW, 80 Spadina, suite 310. 416-504-4242.
Noel Harding is the guy who created those huge grey elephants by the DVP that look like molars. The Elevated Wetlands is his most public work and points to his passion: the environment. Through a balance of organic and innovative materials he creates pieces that cannot be ignored. November 28 to January 11 at DeLeon White Gallery, 1096 Queen West. 416-597-9466.
Making traffic pleasing to the eye is a gift. Colette Laliberté has it. A previous show featured tiny motor vehicles in bright pinks and yellows coursing across dark canvases. Look for subtle movement and not-so-subtle talent as she explores technology in the urban environment. October 5 to 26 at Wynick/Tuck Gallery, 401 Richmond West. 416-504-8716.
When the art world becomes poisoned with stuffiness, the antidote is often Jason Dunda or Tanya Read. Dunda does simple paintings that are sweet bordering on sappy. Read has created a character that looks like a mutated Panda called Mr. Nobody that seems to make an awful lot of appearances for a bear of no importance. November 7 to December 1 at Bus Gallery, 1040 Queen West. 416-537-8827.
