Vivian Felsen



Vivian Felsen has been exhibiting her paintings for over 30 years. During that time she has participated in numerous group shows and juried exhibitions including the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition, the Ontario Society of Artists, and the Society of Canadian Artists. Her work has been shown in private and public galleries, including the Palacio das Artes, Belo Horizonte, Brasil, and since 2007 at the Gallery Arcturus.

Vivian has taught drawing and painting through the Toronto Board of Education (Adult and Continuing Education), and for many years at Max the Mutt College of Animation, Art and Design. 

 About the Artists’ Workshops at Gallery Arcturus:

"The gallery for me is a magical space – calm and peaceful yet charged with energy and excitement. Unusual objects, mysterious collages and exotic music all serve to heighten the senses and stir the imagination, as does the presence of other artists and what they produce. Although none of the participating artists the same way, or sees the same way, and despite the fact that we are each totally absorbed in our own work, I am somehow influenced by others. The painting on my canvas is unlike any I have done before. Strange, satisfying, unexpected. Magic!"
