Tiffany Glass @ Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. Designed and produced by the Beaux Arts, this exhibition of the works of fin de siècle glass designer Louis C. Tiffany--not to be confused with his father, famed jeweler Charles L. Tiffany of Tiffany & Co.--is the first of its kind in Canada, and a must-see for design enthusiasts. The 180+ works on display, including glass vessels, lamps, paintings, mosaics, enamels, jewelry, drawings, and windows often feature bright colors and exotic patterns, pointing towards the influence of the French Orientalist painters who so inspired Tiffany. A highlight is the collection of gorgeous stained glass windows from Montreal's own Erskine and American church.

Lynne Cohen, Photographs @ Art45. After exhibiting her works all over the continent and holding artist's residencies across North America and Europe, contemporary American-Canadian photographer Lynne Cohen returns to her hometown of Montreal for an exhibition of her latest photographs at Art 45. Recipient of the 2005 Governor-General's Award in Visual Arts, Cohen is esteemed in the art world for her photographs of domestic and institutional interior spaces, including living rooms, retirement homes, offices, spas, and factories. She began photographing Western interiors in black and white in the seventies, and continues to depicts spaces of life and work devoid of their human inhabitants. Cohen's use of an 8x10" view camera allows her to capture great detail. An excellent opportunity to check out this globally renowned photographer's work in an intimate gallery setting. Until April 6.

Etienne Zack @ MACM. Check out this young Montreal painter's colorful surrealist scenes, still lifes, interiors, and landscapes in which objects come alive at MACM this month. Previously featured in the Quebec Triennial, Zack's works depict the chaos of objects, and an overflow of items and information. Zack takes a deconstructionist approach, focusing on the context in which the artworks are produced and tools used. Like Cohen, Zack's art probes us to look at the quotidian objects and scenes that surround us with new eyes.

Montreal illustrator, electronic music producer, member of Montreal drawing collective En Masse, and former band member of "strange pop" band Telefauna, Tyler Rauman presents his surrealist, geometrical poster art this month at Monistiraki Gallery. If robots--rather than Tiffany's--are your thing, hit up Monistiraki to witness the works of this quirky artist. Until February 28.

Newsletter_Nuit blanche 2010.jpg NIKO, Tombe Les Masques @ Gallery MX.
Montreal-based nomadic artist NIKO presents an exciting, interactive artistic event as a part of the Nuit Blanche festivities. Her unique and powerful "drama-glam" paintings portray female or androgynous faces with sexual overtones in their luscious lips and intense eyes. According to Louise-Marie Bédard, "[NIKO] worked in the fashion industry and travelled the world, and has since depicted a world of appearances that cultivate's one's image as if it was a biography." On Saturday, NIKO will turn the MX gallery into an art studio to paint an original work in front of her audience. 15% of proceeds from all art sales will be donated to the FAHRA Foundation for the prevention of AIDS. Opening Reception on Friday, February 26 at 5 p.m., and additional reception with the artist's performance on Saturday, February 27 at 5 p.m.

I'm so excited about the stained glass exhibit! I dabble in the craft myself, but would love to see some mastery! Hurray!
