Suzann Greenaway

Moisture and Greenness detail

Suzann Greenaway is a Canadian legend. Between 1979 and 2004 (that's 25 years) she owned Prime Gallery in Toronto, Ontario and represented top Canadian fine craft artists such as Kai Chan, Bruce Cochrane, Paul Mathieu, Anne Barros, Josee Desjardins, David H. Kaye, and Dorothy Caldwell. Moisture and Greenness detail

The gallery started at 229 Queen Street as Prime Canadian Crafts but Suzann changed the name to Prime Gallery when she moved in 1992 to 52 McCaul street just around the corner from the Art Gallery of Ontario. In 2004 Suzann sold the business and retired to her home town in the Muskoka lake region of Ontario. Prime gallery closed in 2009. Emily Carr Visited Me detail

David H. Kaye opened his own gallery Queen Street West gallery district of Toronto, and has picked up where Suzann left off.

Suzann Greenaway contacted me in August and asked if I would participate in a show of contemporary Canadian quilts that she was co-curating. That show opens today in Huntsville and will be up until the new year. I'm pleased to be exhibiting with Judith Tinkl as I've been a fan of her work for a long time. Details are in my updates.
