Dear Friends and Art Lovers,

I am sending you a cordial invite to the show, AGAPE, at Robins Nest Gallery on Sunday October 1st.  AGAPE is the Greco-Christian term referring to unconditional love - "the highest form of love, charity and the love of God for man and of man for God" - as it embraces a universal, unconditional love that transcends and persists regardless of circumstance. The verb form goes as far back as Homer, translated literally as ‘affection’, as in "greet with affection"

Within Christianity, agape is considered to be the love originating from God or Christ love for mankind, it refers to the covenant love of God for humans, as well as the human reciprocal love for God; the term necessarily extends to the love of one's fellow man.

This show aligns with the existing collection titled, ‘Agora’, shown last weekend. The Agora was a central public space in the shape of a circle in ancient Greece a place of gathering where the minds of Athletes, Artists, Spiritual leaders, political leaders and the citizens of the city came together to speak their mind for the commonwealth of the city state. 

I have chosen these two subjects with the intent of getting together with friends and art lovers to spend time in the gallery and garden on this second beautiful summer-like day. We’ll share some food and drinks and enjoy the beauty of the of the art that will be in the garden displaying two of my largest collections of work.

This show will be the second one of a series of seven beautiful collections of new artwork created by me that will be exhibited at this location. I will also be displaying tribute to Canada on its 150th anniversary with a collection of sunflowers, butterflies and paintings in the red and white colours.

Opening reception is on Sunday October 1st from 2pm to 7pm.

The gallery is located at 1292 Hidden Valley Rd. Burlington, ON, L7P-0T5.

For more information, please feel free to visit our web page: www.edwardhoyer.com.

I look forward to the pleasure of your company and to seeing many of you for a wonderful time.

Sincerely,

Edward Robin Hoyer

AGAPE - All about Love

Dear Friends and Art lovers,

I'm exited to open the fall and winter season with a show entitled, AGORA, which means, "Gathering place" in ancient Greek, and was build in the shape of a circle where artists, philophers and the people gathered to discuss the common good.   Each piece of this beautiful collection of work contains a circular shape that is the focus of the piece.  To me this reflects order and peace, working together and creating balance from chaos.  The Agora still lives in our modern lives in many of our public gather places.  I'm looking forward to your company as we form an Agora at my upcoming show on the 23rd and 24th of September.

-Edward
