A Father - Daughter Feature Show
MARCH 1st to 31st 2015
SUNDAY MARCH 1st 1:00p.m. To 3:00.p.m.
Leonora Husveti-Frenette taught Dance at University of Toronto while completing her B. A. in Psychology. She performed with illusionist husband at Hollywood's Magic Castle and on luxury cruise ships around the world.
Leonora’s award winning poetry appeared in anthologies published by the Universities of Toronto and Saskatchewan, and by The Ontario Poetry Society.
She burst onto the visual art scene in 2013 and won 2nd prize from the South Simcoe Arts Council for her first creation. Numerous juried exhibitions followed (some national) in Orillia's Museum of Art and History, Midland’s Quest Gallery, Barrie’s MacLaren Art Centre, Collingwood’s Blue Mountain Foundation for the Arts and Toronto’s Joseph D. Carrier and Todmorden Mills galleries. Her collages were featured in the 15th year anniversary book published by the Hungarian Visual Artists of Canada.
In 2014 Leonora won the Alice Forestell Award for the most promising emerging artist.
Leonora Husveti-Frenette’s art is an expression of intuitive visual poetry, sometimes portrayed surrealistically. She works in paper collage, textile, and abstract painting combined with fiber.
Dr. Alex Sandor Husveti was a member of the medical team introducing open-heart surgery in Hungary. He immigrated to Canada with his family in 1970.
Dr. Husveti became a self-taught artist creating graphic prints and paintings in oil and acrylics. Sculptural works comprise wood carvings, cement and bronze casts including a series of medals honouring outstanding composers, scientists and artists. The majority of Dr. Husveti’s oeuvre belongs to figural compositions but abstract and conceptual ones are featured as well. His favourite subject is the human body. Parallel with the traditional representation of the external anatomy he likes to show also the internal organs and some biological events that were rarely illustrated in art previously.
Dr. Husveti is a founding member of the Hungarian Visual Artists of Canada (HuVAC) and the Medallic Art Society of Canada (MASC), both established in 2000. He served on the Board of Directors at the John B. Aird Gallery for six years.
Dr. Husveti’s work appeared in numerous publications, world anthologies, international, national and local shows around the GTA, and was sold by a New York gallery catering to collectors.
