SPRING BAY—‘A New Day,’ an exhibition and sale of the newest works of Jay Favot, will open on August 12 and will continue until August 19 at Perivale Gallery in Spring Bay.
Mr. Favot is driven to strive harder and better in his art every year. His inspirations have come from a variety of sources, including Ontario, Quebec and Maritime landscapes and cityscapes, as well as taking a fresh view of the ordinary moments of life, with both people and things. “To see someone make that connection to your art is always great,” the artist says. “It has been a conscious effort to vary subjects and style of art over the years.”
Mr. Favot recently retired from a rewarding teaching career. “After several decades of teaching, coaching and bringing my love of art to my students, I look forward to more time with family, friends and the opportunity to travel across our beautiful Canada. As one profession draws to a close, another will begin. My life as a full-time artist is at hand…something I have dreamed of my whole life.”
He received the 2020 Sudbury celebration of the arts award for outstanding artist-mid-career. He was a past recipient of the Peg Forbes Award and Committee’s Choice Award at the annual La Cloche Art Show. He has won the People’s Choice Award at Perivale Gallery’s annual, ‘In the Spirit of Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven Show,’ and figures prominently among the top three awards each year.
Mr. Favot’s artwork can be found in many private collections in Canada, and he is currently represented by Perivale Gallery.
The images of the works featured in this exhibition will be uploaded to Perivale Gallery’s website by 7 am the morning of the opening, August 12, at https://www.perivalegallery.com/jay-favot-1/ Inquiries may be made as of 7 am on August 12.
