Margaret Glew lives & paints in Toronto. Using a deeply personal language of form and gesture, she makes intuitive, layered abstracts that are at once raw and bold, tender and emotional.
She has been exhibiting in Toronto and elsewhere since 1989. Her work was exhibited by Engine Gallery at the Toronto International Art Fair in each of the last five years, and in July, 2007, she was one of eight Canadian artists chosen to exhibit in "Parca, Canada in New York", at the 511 Gallery in Chelsea. Her paintings are in a number of public and corporate collections, including the City of Toronto Archives, the City of Scarborough Art Collection, the Richmond Hill Public Library, and the Canadian Standards Association art collection. She was recently chosen to be one of the artists featured in the book "50 Contemporary Artists" by Tim Phelan, to be published in late 2011.
