Now showing at Chasing The Cheese: new work from versatile Peterborough visual artist Victoria Wallace.
Victoria painted murals in Toronto for 25 years, and her work is highly varied. There is a nice range of work in this display.
You might be familiar with Victoria’s whimsical encaustic works, and they are nicely represented here. The acrylics are of note: one perfectly captures the feel of the old west end, a Gilmour Street home.
These lovely works are up until mid-March. You did not need another reason to visit Chasing The Cheese — but now you have one!
Chasing the Cheese is located at 372 Water Street. Hours are as follows:
- Tuesday – Wednesday: 11 am – 5 pm
- Thursday – Friday: 11 am – 6 pm
- Saturday: 10 am – 5 pm
- Sunday, Monday: Closed

At Black Honey, the walls are currently adorned with art from father and daughter team Alana and Bill Batten.
Bill is currently the Artist In Residence at Gzowski College, Trent University, while his daughter Alana attends high school at Thomas A. Stewart Secondary School, enrolled in the Intergrated Arts program.
The works of these two individuals are naturally not dissimilar. Bill’s broad, colourful landscapes warm up the front part of the cafe, while Alana’s smaller pieces are similarly effective throughout the space.
It’s a lively grouping of pieces which warms the soul on a bleak winter day. The show runs until February 14th.
