Every year grOCAD, in collaboration with the OCAD U Library's Learning Zone, organizes a plant sale that helps to spread the positive impact of plants to our community. This year we are doing things a little different, in collaboration with the Learning Zone and the Student Wellness Centre. The many plant babies which were grown for the sale were taken home by a few grOCAD members in March and we want to share them with you! Instead of a sale, we will be sharing plants with members of the OCAD U community for free, delivered through a contactless process that we hope will keep everyone involved safe. The schedule for deliveries will be adapted to recommended public health and safety measures as the conditions of the pandemic evolve. Unfortunately, we are only able to deliver within the city of Toronto and surrounding municipalities. If you're interested, please fill out our application form

T.M. Glass: The Audible Language of Flowers
May 8 to August 18, 2019

Curated by Francisco Alvarez, Dorene & Peter Milligan Executive Director, OCAD U Galleries

T.M. Glass: The Audible Language of Flowers presents recent series of images by lens-based artist T.M. Glass that feature blooms and vessels from unique gardens across the globe. Glass' distinct photographic style is characterized by extensive digital embellishment of textures and colours to enhance the emotion and geometry of flowers. Recently, the artist’s large-scale flower images expanded into the third dimension through advanced 3-D printing technology. Inspired by 17th century European flower paintings, the artist contends that contemporary digital photographers are also painters who work with pixels instead of oils.

T.M. Glass is a digital artist based in Toronto, whose practice explores the historical, technological, and aesthetic conditions of photography to stretch it beyond its traditional definition. The works have been showcased in multiple solo exhibitions and held in private collections in the Canada, the United States, Britain, France, and Australia. Glass turned to photography as the primary mode of production after studying sculpture at the Ontario College of Art and Design and pursuing a distinguished career in writing and production for film and television. Glass uses rapidly advancing digital technology to celebrate the beauty of nature.
